Ads Tech mini dual TV help installing.

I have recently attempted to install Ads Tech Mini TV (dongle stick type) onto my netbook, Dell inspiron,mini 10v,Windows 7 starter, i cannot get it to install as the drivers on the disk that came with it are for xp only, sometimes it flashes up ''install windows media player 9 or higher'' i cant seem to get this from microsofts site, thats compatible with 7 starter os ?
I have enjoyed this on my xp os laptops but want a 'smaller' version instead, can this be done ?

Thanks.

You need either newer drivers, or to try and install the current driver in compatibility mode. to do that right click the installer>properties>compatibility mode>choose XP.

BTW win 7 uses media player 12.x
