Vodafone VMC Lite does not want to connect to the network if if is executed under Windows XP user with restricted privileges. The software comes up, but saying “No device” and no chance to connect.
How to resolve this: Login as Administrator, Uninstall VMC Lite and install full featured VMC software from Vodafone. Connect to the network. Then login as user and try to connect again – it should work now.
Bear in mind that WinXP is treating every USB port available as separate instance, not connected to each other.. so being logged in as Administrator plug in USB modem to every available port and connect. Otherwise you’ll hear moans from users saying modem is not working.
Simple solution, but I’ve spent quite a time to figure out the way.
