    Some success!

    Seems to be an installer problem.

    When I download Kies from the Samsung support site, the file is listed as 'Kies_Win.exe' but it downloads as 'Kies_2.2.0.12014_18_7.exe'. This file starts some paired-down installer that provides only a green progress bar, progresses for a while, then goes to error trying to unpack the Kies.msi file. Seems to be a common problem.

    After weeks of trouble I downloaded Kies from a Windows7 download site I'm unfamiliar with. That site grabbed a version of Kies from the SamsumgAPPs site. elType=N&ModelName=APPS_UPDATE&idyn=N&VPath=SW/201105/20110512115717796/Kies_2.2.0.12014_18_7.exe.

    This file dowloads as 'Kies_WIN.exe', is 1.33MB instead of 90.7, and provides a completely different installer. Far more detail. Kies was installed and opened, then there were THREE separate online upgrades provided. The last one dated Mar 02/12 9today).

    A few hints.

    Don't hurry the process. Each step takes a while. After each install it takes some time for Kies to open.

    There are a few restarts. The restart request takes some time to pop up and may do so BEHIND the installer dialogue. So check often.

    Hope this helps.

    Samsung Kies

    The version I installed does not work worth a crap for keeping synced. It worked OK for tranferring the initial contacts but now I have to go through Manually to keep up to date. The version that I have it I allow it to update it will NO LONGER FUNCTION because I am in the United States. Yea F ---- ED Up Just Sayin
