Pantech 7040 Drivers Windows 7
Edited by ttiger211996 on Nov 27, 2011 at 6:07:13 PM

Got the Pantech 7040.  Nice little phone to do all the basic functions.  ATT said I would be able to link it to my computer. Downloaded the PCsuite software, hooked up my usb cable.  Looked like ti would install the driver and gave me an error on install.  Can't get it to install properly for the life of me.  When I check under device manager for Pantech HUSB Driver it shows an error code of 37.  Tried bluetooth connection.  Got bluetooth dun to work, but PC suite software doesn't pick up the phone at all or show if it's connected.  Anyone get pc suite to work on windows 7 with pantech 7040(link)?  How did you do it. I just want it to be able to sync it with Microsoft outlook, and this phone would do everything I need it to.

Got it to work fully in windows 7 thanks to a recommendation from hillbilly_tiger in Howard forums

 

This is the procedure which I followed:

Thanks for the info worked like a charm exact procedure below for those with windows 7 64 bit & Pantech Link 7040:

1. Download Link II & Regular Link software from Pantech site.
2. Install Link II software first as administrator. After full install plug in your phone using a USB cable. All drivers will now install for the phone. Unplug the phone after the software installs.
3. Uninstall Link II PC suite software. This will not work with the Link 7040, and restart the computer.
4. Install the Link 7040 software as administrator, and connect your phone and the software will now say it is connected and will work.

 

Thanks to hillbilly for the info.

 

I have only used this with a USB cable connection and have not tried connecting via bluetooth.  If someone does try it via bluetooth please update this post.  Thanks.

Have you been able to find the correct driver?  I'm having the same problem and can't seem to find answers anywhere. Hoping you have found a solution.

The USB driver is in the Pantech suite but has to be installed in compatability mode.

Unfortunately that trick might work on something other than 64 bit, but for windows 7 64 bit it's a no go if installing in compatibility mode.

Hmmm... I use windows 7 64 bit and installed the driver in compatability mode and it works fine. I also ran the install as administrator, don't know if that had anythng to do with it. Sorry it didn't work for you.

Ok sorry about that.  I get it to connect via music player or the mass storage, but for the life of me I can't get the pantech pc suite to pick it up so I can sync with outlook.  Were you able to do this?  It keeps showing not connected in the lower right corner of the pc suite.  If you did could you please share some of the steps you followed to get it to work?

OK, it WORKS!  Although I decided to uninstall the Suite software and just use Windows Explorer to move my files around. Rquires a bit of heavy lifting but this process does install 64 bit drivers for the P7040P. Thanks again for sharing this.

I am runnng windows 7 and I followed the instrucion given by jonusa for my pantech laser p9050. It worked fine just after running the first program. I did not even have to run pc suite in compatiblity mode. Just remember with the new PC Suite you have to run PTQH_V1 that is located in 

program Files(x86)\Pantech pc suit\p9050\usbdriver
