I have a hardware that has to be connected via USB. This piece of hardware is very uncommon and not to be used by general users (it burns firmware into microcontroller [OKI Semiconductor], the device is called uEASE [micro ease]). I use this hardware in office but now I've to use it in my home pc. My office pc runs of Windows XP Professional and home pc runs on Windows 7 Ultimate. I've the driver for XP. Unfortunately, the driver is not supported by Windows 7. Whenever I try to install/update the driver from device manager, Windows 7 says:
Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.
The data is invalid.
The driver comes with only a *.sys file and a *.inf file. How to work with this driver in Windows 7?
Thanks in advance.
The hardware manufacturer does not provide any updated driver for Vista/7.
