Windows 7, 64 Bit & Arduino USB (FTDI 232 R) Device Driver

Driver included released in ARDUINO 0019 simply does not work in 64 bit Windows 7.

The same folder where driver is found have a link to manufacturer website which have this noted as

"Windows 7 x64 OS will only allow certified drivers to be installed. The certified driver supplied by FTDI will work with VID 0403 and PID 6001 for FT232 and FT245 devices. It will also work with VID 0403 and PID 6010 for FT2232 devices and VID 0403 and PID 6011 for FT4232.

If you have a product where the manufacture has customised the driver but has not re-certified it, then the driver will not load. You should contact your vendor to determine if they will support Windows 7 x64."

What works for me is not to use driver included in ARDUINO 0019. But to use latest manufacturer driver that can be found  in this page.

Works like a charm. Will update here if there is issue in the future.
