Windows 7: Windows-7 64bit installer Infrared driver

Windows-7 64bit installer Infrared driver

Laptop Toshiba Satelite X205-SLi6
This laptop has a built in IR receiver with an RC6 Toshiba remote. It works great with Vista 32 ultimate and Windows-7 32bit ultimate and plays media software well. Since Windows-7 64bit does not detect the IR receiver hardware the Toshiba drivers will not install even though the drives are marked 32/62 bit.
Please, someone at Microsoft tell me why Win-7 64bit installer does not recognize the IR hardware. No, it is not in the list of Hardware devices.
