Operator-assisted dialup and Win 7

I am having one heck of a problem. We are moving from XP to 7 at work. We dial directly into remote computers running XP Pro. Some of these sites require us to manually dial in.
For whatever reason, in Windows 7 we are not getting the connect option once we dial. I select the connection, tell it to dial, and all I get is a modems are connection window. I should be getting another window with a connect button. Once you dial the number, you click the connect button, and the modems handshake. This is how it works in XP, and how help says Windows 7 should work.
I have tried older sportster modems, and new win modems without any luck. Does anyone know what might be the problem? If I turn off operator-assisted dialing, I can connect to sites just fine. I cannot go without it, that is not an option.
Also, we use a program called Laplink for some older machines that have yet to be updates to XP. When I select the operator assisted option there, I get the expected window, and it is the same window that should appear under the Windows connection.

You can use Hyperterm to connect,then you can then open your other program after the handshake..

Simply enter this into hyperterm

atat [The # here] and then add a semicolon (;) (This puts the modem in standby mode (For more tones entered from you,etc)

Example: atdt 18004443333;

When you hear the modem answer,type ATO and your modem should handshake with the host....

Then close Hyperterm and open your other program

Good luck!
