As I understand it, Windows 7 has a default 64 bit widgit for setting this up that won't work for this as you have to pull up it's 32 bit version. I don't know the step by step for this, but other posts made in the recent past indicate that this is a likely reason for the trouble you are having here.
Just to clarify I have a 64-bit version. You said there's a 32 bit workaround for this?
Now, you mentioned there are other posts that tell you how to do it. I searched for it and couldn't find anything. WOuld you be able to point me to those posts?
Got it. That solved my problem. Thank you very much PhilModJunk!
