    Which drivers are you using? This one worked 100% for me in Vista compat mode.

    Vista_Win7_R263.exe

    If compatibility mode fails to run an installer there is another option.
    Whenever installers run the drivers will be tucked away in the temp directory if the installer fails navigate to the temp folder sort by date. This will make locating the correct folder easier.

    Once located copy the address in the explorer address bar.
    Open dev manager and locate your unknown hardware when it prompts you for a location of the driver paste the location into the dialog box.
    If the drivers take "then success" you have some functionality.
    Note this method will not install 3rd party applications but in 88% of the times I used this method it provided hardware recognition and functionality.
