 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I recently bought an arduino nano and arduino duemilanove, and cannot get them to install or work in windows 7 64 bit.  I have read multiple guides, but no luck.

Heres what I've done.
-Downloaded the latest arduino 0022 software.
-Plug in arduino, getting an error message that driver wasn't installed
-Go to device manager, right click, update driver
-manually browse to the FTDI usb drivers folder and attempt to update
-I just get an error message "windows could not find driver software for your device"

I've tried with both arduinos and neither works.  Any help?

Have you tried installing the drivers from FTDI's site?

32 bit or 64 bit? Those are the only two possibilities. You should know which OS you really are running. If not, right click on the My Computer icon, and select Properties.
