Download the latest ProntoEdit Professional NG software from the files section. it also has the driver. install this software BEFORE connecting the remote to the machine. Make sure to run the installer with Admin rights in XP compatibility mode. Then, search for windows 7 64-bit if you are running 64 bit to see what needs to be done to use the software on Win7 or Vista 64-bit OS.

If you truly installed that software, in the installation folder, there is a device drivers folder. For example,

D:\XPOther\Philips\ProntoProEdit NG\Drivers

In that folder, you will find 2 folders - XP and 98SE.

If you have already connected the remote to the computer via USB and Win7 asked for drivers, you should ignore as there are no Win7 drivers.

With regard to getting things to run on Win7, please have a search of this forum for Vista or Win7 where you will find information about running in XP Compatibility mode.

I suggest you start here and see the posts by LowPro...

I don't have Win7 installed here so I am going by what my good friend LowPro tells me. He's got it working and quite nicely as I understand it.

The Philips Pro remotes (TSU9300/9400/9600/9800 TSX9500) but be aware that Philips has shut down production on the entire line. See Philips Pro forum if you have questions about this line.
