ICOM IC-7000 CI-V with WINDOWS 7

Had real trouble installing the USB CI-V interface for my IC-7000 on a WINDOWS 7 machine. Internet tells me everyone has this problem. The driver that Prolific makes available simply does not work. I tried the usual WINDOWS driver install process (install, uninstall, reinstall, uninstall, try various “compatability” settings which nobody understands), but no luck.

After many attempts, I finally loaded the VISTA version of the driver. It appears to have loaded. Why didn’t I think of this before?? Of course – load a version that is not intended for your operating system. I should know if this actually worked tomorrow when I try to talk to the radio. ¬†Expectations are low.
