Windows 7 Guide - First Things First...

If you are running Windows 7, we need to know if you are running a 32-bit or 64-bit version:

In Windows, click the start button, right click Computer and select Properties.

In the next Window have a look at the System Type as highlighted in yellow below. This will tell you if you have a 32 or 64 bit installation of Windows.

Is your computer 64-bit or 32-bit?

This section is for users who have 64-bit Windows, if you are using 32-bit Windows please select the 32-bit tab above.

If you have 64-bit Windows you can download the partnertech CD7220 64-bit drivers here .

Save the driver to your desktop and extract the Partnertech_CD7220_64bit_drivers.exe file to your desktop.

Note You can save the driver and extract it to another location such as your downloads folder if you prefer.

Double click Partnertech_CD7220_64bit_drivers.exe to launch it.

If you get a prompt telling you to plug in your USB pole display you can do so now.

Click OK once you have plugged the CD-7220 pole display into the USB port.

When you plug in the CD-7220, Windows will attempt to install a driver for the device, but since we haven't installed the drivers yet this will fail. If you get a warning that the CD-7220 device driver software was not successfully installed, this is perfectly normal and the error can be ignored.

In the Partner driver installer there are two steps to installing the drivers.

First, in the CD7220UN section select Install True USB Driver and click the Execute button.

If you get a warning about the driver publisher, choose the option Install this driver software anyway.

When installation is complete, select the Install Simulation to COM Port USB Driver option in the CD7220UN section, and again click the Execute button.

Again, if you get a warning about the driver publisher, choose the option Install this driver software anyway.
