joewrenn, welcome to the Seven Forums.

I hope this is the driver you are trying to install,


as there is not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for that card (there isn't a Vista driver either). It may take using compatibility mode,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install properly. You will also likely not have any use of the AIW part of the card as there are no drivers for it either.
