Ok, new computer on order. I already have a Microsoft keyboard and its brief user guide says:
a) install the software (IntelliType Pro),
b) connect the keyboard to the PC,
c) read the installed help.

So how would I be able to install the software BEFORE plugging in the keyboard?

And, if I connected the keyboard, then installed the IntelliType software, how can I make sure that it is used for the keyboard?

I suspect that if you plug in the keyboard first win 7 will find and install the correct driver

I agree with zigzag on this. I have had no issues doing it either way, just reboot if required.
