Windows 7: 32bit driver on Windows 7 64bit

32bit driver on Windows 7 64bit

I am trying to setup my CCTV system on a new installation of 7 64bit.

The box that plugs into the PC via USB which has all the cameras attached to it only has a 32bit driver. Is there anyway of installing the device using the 32bit drivers?

I'm pretty sure the answer is no but I just wanted to make sure.

You can try compatibility mode.

If the driver doesn't have an installer file just a directory you point Windows to, using the update driver screen in device properties, to install the driver is there still a way of using compatability mode?

I hope the USB passthrough can handle such device... Good luck, Oli

I've done it before using a VM on another PC temporarily and it worked fine, the only thing I'm a little worried about is the network access but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
