I just recognized on a new Windows 7 installation that the drivers for the LPCXpresso boards do not work properly when using version 7.8 or 7.9.

The problem was, that the LPCXpresso LPC11U68 as well as LPCXpresso LPC1769 could not be recognized by the IDE.
Once I installed version 7.7 and opened the same workspace as previously, the LPC-Link driver got installed automatically after starting the first flashing procedure and it worked fine.

After flashing the software with version 7.7 worked, I was able to use version 7.9 as well.
I recognized that problem on several Windows 7 PCs where LPCXpresso was installed for the first time.
