Most likely not compatible with Windows 7. What is it you are installing, and is it something you downloaded for Win7, or installing from a non Win7 CD ?

Hi there,

When i install the driver for first time the files are getting copied and works fine. If i try to update this driver with new the new sys file is not over writing in system32 directory. I am in Administrator privilege.

Also the file is not deleting while uninstall, you need to manually delete from system32 to re-install with new updated driver.
