You may have to use compatibility mode to get it to install if it won't install normally, Compatibility Mode - Vista Forums
I see that they aren't WDDM 1.0 drivers
, but rather XDDM (for XP).
It still may be possible to get them running under Windows 7, if you can live without Aero Glass.
As for rajun69's exhortation to not buy Matrox, no worries - I think that their retail presence in the USA is almost nil now.
Whether Matrox is any worse than nVidia or ATI (AMD) in terms of abandoning driver support for legacy products, I have no idea. I'm surprised at the number of people who expect perpetual driver support for exisiting hardware, even though it makes no money for the hardware manufacturers. (Good will must have some value, although it must be hard to monetize.)
