DE2-115 USB drivers Windows 7

Hello all 

 

I'm trying to run the DE2_115_NIOS_DEVICE_LED demo but am having trouble getting my computer (Windows 7 x64) to install the d12test.inf driver. 

 

In device manager it just comes up as 'Unknown device'. If I try and "udpate driver" and point it to the directory containing d12test.inf it says its got the best driver already. If I right click d12test.inf and install windows says "The INF file you selected does not support this method of installation". 

 

Anybody got a workaround for this problem? 

 

Thanks 

Hugh

I emailed Terasic about this issue and they've told me that they've not got a 64 bit version of the driver and I should run Windows XP - which isn't really an option.

The drivers are located in the <Path to Quartus II installation>\drivers\ directory. 

 

I know it's been a while since you posted. I hope this still helps.
