I had to try installing the 32 bit driver first. Actually I tried numerous drivers that all failed, however during the failures the drivers had extracted their files to the install folder. So when I did the search c:\ thing, driver update was searching the folders that had just previously failed.
Some zip/rar extractors will allow you to unzip the driver exe file. I think I read that 7zip can do this. If you can find the correct extractor and get the inf's out of the exe, it might work for you. Let windows decide if it wants to use the inf.
Then you can blame Bill if it blows up!
It appears Compatibility mode is available in 7 premium. See if you can get into it by right clicking the driver exe. or you can take the long way around.http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... 86dd031af0
