Verizon Iobi and Vista

Today’s challenge was to get Verizon’s IOBI voice mail client working on my Vista workstation that’s part of my SBS 2003 network. Downloading and installing the software went smoothly. But the software kept crashing when I tried to start it up and sign in.

Solution is to run the program in “Compatibility Mode”. Right click on the IOBI client icon, select Properties > Compatibility, and then click on the checkbox to run it in compatibility Mode (I left it default to Windows XP SP2 mode).

Hope this helps someone!

  1. THANK YOU!!!!

    I had spent several hours on various days on hold trying to get someone to help me. Travel for work, so I used this all of the time until they upgraded me to Vista 8 months ago. Finally found someone who could help me.

  2. Thank You so much! I almost canceled IOBI because now all my computers have Vista, I an disappointed though that Verizon did not offer a solution to this problem.
