I just got a Windows 7 machine. How do you change that setting?

I figured it out. You can download drivers from FTDI at http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm and manually update drivers using the folder you extract those files into.

So, I'm trying to install the driver for my new Windows 7 machine (64 bit). However, the driver install instructions for the Duemilanove only discuss Vista and XP. I tried to manually install it by locating the device in the device manager (FT323R USB UART) and updating the driver. I told it to manually install by searching the folder arduino/drivers, but no luck. Any ideas?

Okay, don't ask how I got this to work. But, I reinstalled the driver, and now it works. So, between Windows and the driver software, something didn't go through the first time. Go figure.

I'm having this exact same problem. Perhaps certain versions of Windows 7 don't let you view ports? Anybody ever got the board to work in this case?
