To my understanding, the three things you named off MUST be installed onto the classmate. This includes the 2011 Driver station update, not the 2010 update. Also, if you are using windriver, you do not need to download the "LabVIEW update" but you do need to install the "C/C++ update" found here http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprogr....aspx?id=18758
The order is 'classmate update.bat' then 'utilities update' then 'driver station 2011' then C/C++ update unless you are programming with a separate computer, in which case that is the computer you download the C/C++ update to. Hope this made sense.
