How to: KeyRig 49 in Windows 7
For those with problems with KeyRigs in Windows 7, check this out.
Alright, so when you plug in your keyboard the first time you will get an error message that looks like this:
Click "OK" and go into Control Panel. Then click "Device Manager". It should look something like this:
You'll see "KeyRig 49" in "Other Devices". Right click it and go to "Update Driver Software..."
On this screen, click "Browse my computer for driver software"
In the address bar of places to search, delete all but "C:\" and make sure "Include Subfolders" is checked. Click next (at the bottom).
After a few minutes of searching, you should get a message asking if you want to trust the driver software, as it's not signed. Pick whatever option is "Install the driver software anyway"
After another pause while the driver installs, it should succeed and if you go back into your Device Manager you should see KeyRig 49 under "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers." If not, post on these forums and the helpful M-Audio staff (not me) will guide you through it.
EDIT: After this, you should be able to plug it into any USB port and have it work after a short delay.
