New Intel driver for GMA 500 graphics

Hi All
A new Intel driver for GMA 500 graphics has been released for the Sony Vaio P with noticeable improvements in video viewing, Aero performance (enables 3D acceleration) and web browsing. I have been advised that it Works only under Vista and Windows 7, no XP.
Apparently you have to install under Windows 7, use compatibility mode and select Vista as OS.
Can someone please guide me on how to install using compatibility mode ?
Many thanks
Garry
