This same trick works flawlessly under Windows 7 x64 after Windows decided to not recognize the mic. Saved a lot of frustration! Thanks!

I too am having problems getting the desktop mic to work with Windows 7 x64 Pro. I'm running:
q6700 @ 3.0ghz
8gb ballistix ram
windows 7 pro 64
creative x-fi xtreme audio
When I plug in the USB the light works but Windows doesn't even attempt to install the driver software. After going into device manager there is a yellow exclamation mark next to AK5370 indicating that no driver is installed for the device.
I've attempted to follow the workaround instructions but am just getting the message "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attemting to install it". Just to clarify - because I think there is a gap in the instructions that I am trying to fill incorrectly - here are the steps I went to:
i) in device manager select update driver
ii) browse my computer for driver software
iii) let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
iv) select sound, video and game controllers
The problem occurs now when the box show compatible hardware is ticked the only driver that comes up is the usb composite device driver which then gives me the error message I noted above. This seems to be different from other people's steps. Does anyone have any suggestions?

After restarting my computer and trying to update the drivers from the device manager again, instead of being presented with the usb composite device driver as the only compatible hardware, I am instead being offered the USB audio device. This is STILL coming up with the same error message as before, however, so any help getting around this would be appreciated.
