    Ive just installed Win 7 64bit software.

    I previously had Win 7 32bit software installed.

    I usually connect to the internet with a Thomson Speedtouch 330 modem which worked well in the 32bit version but the software will not install in the 64bit version.

    Can anyone suggest a solution?

    Previous advice on this site suggested that the Windows Vista 64bit drivers would work and I downloaded these but they wont install!!

    Can anyone suggest another external modem with a reasonable price tag that will work in Win 7 64bit.

    Cheers.

    Have you tried installing the Vista drivers in Compatibility mode?

    64bit Win 7 drivers.

    Thanks for the quick reply pbcopter - please advise how you get into "compatability mode" to install Vista 64bit drivers?

    Thank you.

    Right click on the driver install file and select properties, Then select the Compatibility Tab. Then put a check in the box next to Run this program in compatibility mode for: and the select Vista from the pull down menu.
