Running NokiaSoftwareUpdaterSetup on Windows 7

Today I needed to upgrade the software on my Nokia N97, and was prompted by the Nokia software to download and run NokiaSoftwareUpdaterSetup_en.exe.

The only thing was, this just exited with a message saying unsupported platform or something. I quickly tested if the exe file was an archive and discovered I could unpack it with 7-Zip. Inside the resulting directory, in a folder named Installer, I found a file called Configuration.icf, and in this a line with the string

TargetOSs=winXP,winVista

I added ‘,win7′ on a hunch and ran Installer.exe, and what do you know, it worked :)
