Motorola Phone Tools 4.5 – Vista 64-bit (x64) Installation for MPT

Having purchased Motorola Phone Tools (aka MPT) last night, today I went ahead and gave the installation a go ahead. The first question I had is how would it and the drivers for my Motorola V3 RAZR (soon to be RAZR2) would behave in the 64-bit (x64) mode of Windows Vista Ultimate edition that I am running on my computer. In previous experiences with P2K Commander and Leader GL Flex Editor XP, the process was not so smooth.

While the initial CD insertion as well as the start of the installation went fine, I was most concerned about theinstallation of the drivers. I had previously installed the Motorola Driver Installer for 64-bit (x86) that I spoke of in this post and I was not sure if there would be any conflicts with those drivers or if it would simply not install properly. However, it went off like a charm – the installation completed properly with minimal intervention.
