I was wondering how I might obtain drivers (official or otherwise) for the Cordless MX Duo (an MX 700 cordless mouse and keyboard) for WIndows 7? I'd like to have full functionality but am unable to find the correct software. Would it be possible to download the mouse and keyboard drivers separately as the MX Duo drivers don't seem to have a Windows 7 variant. There is support for the latest version of Mac OS, but not Windows 7.
The reply I got from Logitech support was: "Your camera does not conform with Microsoft’s strict standards for Windows 7 and as such, Logitech does not have any available software and/or drivers available for it."
Peculiar since this is NOT a camera. They go on to say that this device is not WHQL certified and cannot be supported. Any non-WHQL drivers I could use?
Please let me know!

Found that MS has it on their radar: http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/compatibility/win

Now if the MX 700 mouse is Windows 7 64-bit compatable, where are the drivers from Logitech?

Most, but not all, drivers for Logitech hardware seem to come from Microsoft. I found this by looking at the details in Device Manager.
What Logitech provides is the software that adds features to those drivers.
The exception seems to be unifying devices. These have a mixture of Logitech and Microsoft drivers.
The best place to find drivers and software to play with is the Logitech ftp site:
Good luck. With Windows 8 imminent we can expect more pleas for support for "old" hardware.

You are absolutely right, the basic drivers do come from MS. However, what I'm more interested in is having the advanced functions such as media keys, shortcuts, etc. continue to work as subsequent versions of Windows come out. This would require an update to the Logitech software OR some type of work around using generic software that can emulate normal functionality. I've heard it's possible to use Microsoft brand drivers and software for this, any truth to that? If that is true, any suggestion on what MS keyboard/mouse combo software may be equivalent that I can try out? Thanks in advance!

So I'm guessing I'm on my own as far as finding a way to support the advanced function keys on my MX Duo for Windows 7. Not cool. I'm unhappy that the finest quality and most expensive keyboard/mouse I've ever owned is now reduced to basic functionality because of a lack of software. Hardware stil works great however, so it is too bad that I'll be mothballing this fine piece of input equipment for an old MS wireless keyboard/mouse of the same era that IS supported in Windows 7.
