I didn't install it, but it looks like if you have win 7 pro 64 bit, it 
is a free download. You need to use IE and instal a validation plugin. 
Half a gig of a download!

Now I suspect a 32bit driver might work with the VM. I have an old 
usb/serial that won't install in 64 bit windows, but I just replaced the 
hardware. The VM needs to be allotted RAM. Kind of messy. However, this 
is a good experiment, presuming I can uninstall this VM.
