    I got my 1020 working on both a Win7 64bit laptop and my Win7 64bit desktop.

    Hmmm... Some posts that may help you....
    Hey guys,

    I have good news and bad news.

    The good:

    The project my screen app is now available for download and it works :D
    Link: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...yScreenApp.msi

    The bad:

    Unfortunately the app is a Windows desktop app, not Windows Metro, but is still full screen on the desktop, making meaning you can not snap the app to the side of your screen or open it in a window and still get other work done.

    To use the feature, install the Project My Phone app, activate Project My Phone in Settings, and connect your phone and run the app.

    Have fun :D
    Tip for those who can't get it to work:

    Unplug your phone from your PC if it isn't already. Go to Control Panel, Devices and Printers. Find your phone (it may be in there multiple times), right click on it and select "Remove Device". Then plug your phone back into your PC, go to "project my screen" on your phone, and then run the application on your PC.
    Actually there's a little tiny adjustment to that fix

    LEAVE your phone plugged in, then uninstall all the drivers, delete it. Unplug it, delete it from devices and Printers as well.

    THEN replug it back it. works.

    Sorry to hear you couldn't get it working. Perhaps Nokia Beamer or Nokia "Play To" might work for what you're trying to do. I couldn't find any practical purpose myself for projecting my phone screen.. but I see how it could come in handy for some.

    It works fine on my computer. Is there anyway to lose the black borders and actually go full screen on the computer??

    While in the window press 'E' uppercase. That expands it to the window.

    I am able to use the project my screen app on my PC. However, I can't control the phone using my PC mouse. Has anybody been able to do that?
