Anyone else finding that the new beta is not working on their HTC Hero? Any way to remedy this?

On my HTC Droid Eris, the new (November) beta also does not work. I get a modal dialog box saying, "The Skype package you installed is configured for another device and will operate with limited functionality. Please contact Swype about this issue."

UPDATE: I actually can use the Sqwpe keyboard to type one letter at a time, but I cannot "Swype" any words (i.e., use the Swping motion to enter multiple letters without lifting my finger from the glass).

UPDATE (#2): See this thread for a fix (worked on my Eris -- see last post about waiting for "Enable Swype" popup after pressing "Done"): http://forum.swype.com/showthread.php?1511-The-Swype-package-you-installed-is-configured-for-another-device...

It's not working on my HTC Hero either. I can still type normally, but I can't actually Swype and when I double tap a word, it only highlights it, it doesn't let me make changes. I can't figure out how to fix it. It was working and them it wasn't. I uninstalled and reinstalled Swype, not the installer and it didn't help.

Sounds like the Installation process isn't completing. Please re-run the installer (with out uninstalling the software) and you should receive prompts to pick up the licensing process where it was left off.

Nope not working on my HTC Hero (t-mobile g2 touch) either..
can't handle not having my keyboard.
A few things- 1. first time installed said the size wasn't supported, tried a different package (spanish/ english) and that installed, but can't select it as keyboard input at all (this is UK English).

jclift26: can you give us a little more information? What happens when you try to select Swype as your input method? Is it showing up in Language & Keyboard? Please use these instructions as a reference when describing your issue: http://beta.swype.com/android/welcome/detailed/

The problem is I don't actually have swype as an option as an input selection, even though I can see swype when I go to keyboard,. When the keyboard does up, it's definitely my normal android keyboard

Phone: T-mobile G2 touch (htc hero)
Carrier: t-mobile UK
Kernel number: 2.6.29-5f74b252
Android: 2.1

As an fyi, ive been using the old beta for a long time. Does this info help @ least, I'm trying to uninstall package and installer to see if it makes any difference. Thanks for the fast response!

Ok, so just an update, uninstalled the installer and the keyboard and reinstalled and it now works, if a bit laggier...,but its there , nice new interface! I'm hoping that you guys are supporting sony ericsson xperia neo as I can't imagine having a phone without your keyboard.
