How to Install any Driver/Software which isn't Supported by Windows Vista/7

Hello!!

There are lots of old Soft-wares and Drivers available which are not compatible with Higher Version of Windwos.

So some Windows XP exclusive setups can be installed under Windows Vista/7 As Under.

1. Try to install the drivers in compatibility mode.
2. For that right click on setup.
3. Go to properties.
4. Go to compatibility Tab.
5. Set it to win xp sp2.
6. Hit ok
7. Run setup as administrator
8. Ignore any error and hit continue anyway during installation
9. Restart pc

If the above trick doesn't work, then use the device in VIRTUAL XP MACHINE
You can use XP MODE or VMWARE or any other Virtal Machine Application.

Hope it Helps..!!
