In Win7, not only you need a driver for the Smartcard reader, you also need a driver for the Smart card itself. It sounds like the system can't find a driver for the Smart Card. What is the hardware ID for your Smart Card? You can find this info from device manager, "Details" tab and select "Hardware ID".
