   Yep, after you install VB, you can download the extension pack for 
that version.  In the GUI, got to FILE - Preferences, then click 
"extensions"  Click the "add package" icon and pick the extension 
package.  VB no longer comes in 2 flavors, all the proprietary "free for 
non-commercial individual use" stuff is via the extension pack.

Fired up Win7 64bit via VB the other weekend and ran my Garmin nuvi 200, 
joystick and HP USB printer just fine.  Forgot to email you. Sorry.
