Palm Desktop Will Not Launch In Windows 7

Well, I may have a new wrinkle in the ongoing saga of Windows 7 - Palm problems.  I just loaded the Palm Desktop program to my Windows 7 32-Bit OS and then I did a Hotsync which according to the Palm Sync Manager went fine.  When I try to launch the Palm Desktop program on my computer I get the Windows message asking if I want to authorize the changes and when I click OK all I get is the Palm Desktop splash screen and then the program hangs up and just sits there.  I can launch other programs over top of the Palm Desktop program and my computer appears fine but the Palm Desktop program just will not complete its launch.  I guess it could be said that we have a "Failure To Launch".
Has anyone encountered this and do they have a fix?  Like so many people in these Forums I have been using Palm products for a long time and can't see not having one.  Thanks.

This is an update to my previous post of earlier today.
I was able, after a lot of messing around and wasted time, to get my Palm to sync with my Windows 7 32-Bit OS.  I got a Palm error message telling me that "Not all data was backed up".  I absolutely hate the look and feel of the new 6.2.2 Palm Desktop.  It is extremely hard on the eyes and the print is so tiny it is just about uinreadable.
There is also a problem, with both the Lookup and Find functions in the Palm Desktop.  Neither of them work.  Whenever I try to do a search in Contacts the program locates something totally different than what I wanted ie:  search for Bradley and the program goes to Kimnach.  The Find function is just as useless, when I try to use it nothing happens and the program just sits there doing absolutely nothing.
Palm and Palm Pilots used to be good but now they are just another loser who couldn't make it.  I completely understand why Palm was noit able to make it, they simply didn't have a clue in the world and their users paid a price for their stupidity and failure to innovate big time.  If I didn't have so much at stake in terms of data I would pitch my Palm into the shredder and walk away from the whole mess that is Palm.
If anyone else has run into this mess and knows of a fix or a workaround please feel free to share it.  Thanks!
