    Hi,

    Great to hear, can you tell me what version you are running and did you have to do any manual manipulations to get it working or just straight install ?

    I just installed it and it worked....
    It needs to be run as Administrator. So when installing it, right click on the installer and select 'run as admin'.
    I am currently running 10.70.G5.08

    Anthony,

    Thank you for all the help but I am still having issues installing the DS4000 client so I went ahead and downloaded SMIA-VS32-10.70.35.08. I did not see the version you are running. Followed your instruction to "run as adminstrator" but still getting the error indicating that the storage manger does not support windows x86_64.

    Please see attached file for complete error code.

    Tks again.

    For those of you having issues, please don't go looking for the older versions of SM.

    Right now you can use 10.77.x5.16

    http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/selectFixes?parent=ibm~Storage_Disk&product=ibm/Storage_Disk/DS5300&release=DS_SM_v10.77.x5.16&platform=Windows+64-bit,+x86&function=all

    The release notes are clear that you can use this version of SM as a client on Windows 7 where it says:

    "In addition, the only
    DS4000/DS5000 Storage Manager host software support on Microsoft Windows
    XP Professional,Microsoft Windows Vista (English only), and Windows 7
    operating systems is the DS Storage Manager client program."
