Safe to buy Xbox 360 Wireless Gamin Receiver For Win 7?

Hi, Ive seen some threads where people are having problems in using their receivers for Windows 7. I currently have Win 7 64-bit and I have 2 wireless X-Box 360 controllers and a X-Box 360 Wireless racing wheel.

So, my question is, does this work on Win 7 x64?

I just bought the wireless controller a couple of days ago, and it works fine in my Win7 Ultimate x64, so if the wheel uses the same receiver, then I would bet that it will work as well.
