There are four different versions listed on the trendnet website. I believe you need to identify which one you're using and download the appropriate software. Even though they look quite similar, you should be able to find out which you have via your manual, details on the card or by closely scrutinizing the photos.

Here's the Microsoft compatibility article
Also, it has been suggested that you make sure you are in a homegroup before installing the drivers.
