Need a WIN7 driver for a Worldtech Devices, specialty keyboard
My newly rebuilt media editing computer has been successfully loaded with Windows 7 Home Edition Family Pack.
I have a specialty USB keyboard for Adobe Custom Suite 4, model K9852, from worldtechdevices. The company has apparently gone out of business and I can't find enough information to see who might have acquired them, in order to get a current Windows 7 driver.
Before my rebuild the keyboard was working gr8 with WINXP-PRO-SP3 and since reloading and trying to get up to full speed, the WTD keyboard is giving me problems, i.e. when specific letters or number are used, I get the letter wanted plus the letter either to the right or left, when using numeral 2, I also get numeral 1.
Hopefully you folks can help me; 1) either find worldtech or, 2) tell me Windows 7 native drivers are sufficient, or 3) give me some other action to try.

I'm also having problems getting updated info about WorldTech Devices. According to a Dun & Bradstreet company called Hoovers (they track and rate other companies) WorldTech is located in California. But when I tried going to the listed website I get a "site isn't loading right now" error message.

Assuming they are in fact out of business, you might be able to find a driver by using Device Manager, updating or uninstalling the existing driver, and let Windows 7 search for a comparable driver. (I'd make sure to have another keyboard available just in case.) Expand "Keyboard" > right-click on the K9852 > Update Driver Software. See if that helps. Or, after right-clicking on the K9852 > Uninstall. Then reboot and see if a driver is found and installed by Windows 7.

In the alternative, you could use a 3rd party company like DriverMax. Let it scan you computer and see if they can find an updated driver.
Or, you could try running the XP driver in Compatibility Mode.
