Can I install the update to the Connect desktop software and connect to my Reader that does not have the firmware upgrade?
I would like to hear from anyone who has tried this. Did it cause any problems?

I honestly don't think you have anything to worry about. The majority of posts from people who've had problems have been using unsupported environments - Macs, etc. Even with those there have only been a handful of reports compared with the overwhelming majority for whom it's gone flawlessly (other than a battery meter issue which requires a soft reset).
I'm sure that you can upgrade Connect independently, but it's going to "nag" you about upgrading the Reader's firmware every time you plug it in. Best just to get it over and done with, IMHO.
