I am using the Windows XP mode from Windows 7 to operate some programs that are not 64-bit compliant.  The software works however the network adapter I require to connect to a lon network (type of data network for building automation) comes up with the following error when I attempt to install it.  

"The registry key for the network interface could not be opened.  You cannot modify the configuration settings until at least one Network Interface has been inserted and recognized by the system."

I have confirmed that it is recognized in Windows 7 with the correct name and it attaches correctly when I attach the USB using the "attach" feature of windows XP mode.  The USB device even shows up in the "Lonmaker" software as it is supposed to however without installing it using the plug 'n play installer it will not function.

I have also confirmed that the network adapter is working correctly on another computer.

Is there a way to find and copy the registry settings from another computer to bypass the "plug 'n play" installer or repair this error.  Please note I have confirmed with the manufacture and 64-bit support and or software is not available.

Yeh I have tried different ports / Installing driver with device attached / Installing driver with device unattached / removing device from list and reinstalling / I attempted to upgrade device driver.

From the way the error is written and from what I am seeing it seems that the registry isn't allowing modifications to the configuration.
