But here's the rub. And why I mentioned Win 7. I actually succeeded in installing a piece of hardware after an uninstallation/clean-install but reinstall using compatibility mode Windows 7 SP2. This (running the setup.exe, to unconfuse everybody) after complete run of program (post install with only Administrative rights) FAIL several times.

This after a tip I found, and like you screwed my eyes up at, which is telling me that a driver still needed to be manually dropped into the WOWSys folder. Sounds to me like the old Office disconnect OLEDB 32-bit/64-bit(not really 64-bit yet) deal-from-the-bottom-of-the-deck where the 64-bit library doesn't get registered or used without going to regsrver32 first.

Still doesn't make sense. But like Sergey's understanding of QA questions sometimes, I think not understanding is what help turns out to be. As long somethings works. Then the cheapest answer is the one I understand.
