windows 7 driver install - update

The instructions on this page:

indicate that windows vista will auto-install the fdti drivers for the board when it is plugged in. One windows 7 (ultimate, 64 bit) the security efaults appear to have changed and it will not automatically download the drivers. you must go tell windows to allow downloading drivers, and then it works.


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

You just plug in the Arduino and wait for the driver installation part to pop up. then select "install driver from a folder" then to the directory where you have installed arduino-0021, then select the 'drivers' directory and install! mine looks like this "I:\arduino-0021\drivers"

I hope it works, though Im using Windows XP. ;D :D :)

Mine self installed the driver, i didn't have to do anything
