USBDM with 64-bit Win 7 computer

I cannot use USBDM with my 64 bit Windows 7 computer.


I had been using USBDM Ver 4.8 in my old XP computer since last year only to program 9S08 devices.  The old computer crashed and I purchased a new 64 bit Win 7 laptop.  I installed USBDM Ver 4.8 and plugged in my WYTEC board.  The computer couldn't find the USB drivers but I went into Device Manager and pointed it to the driver folder.  They were installed and the Device Manager said they were good.  However, the USBDM 9S08 programmer would not work with the board.


So I thought that Ver 4.8 was not new enough for the 64 bit computer.  I downloaded Ver 4.10 and, using a borrowed computer, installed the Ver 4.10 firmware into the board and the software into my Win 7 computer.


But it still didn't work.  Although Device Manager says the USB drivers are good the 9S08 programmer does not recognize the existence of the attached USBDM board.  It's as if it were not attached to the computer.

I need help.
