a virtual COM port on W7 64bit

Hi,

I installed a software on my W7prof. 64-bit desktop (192.168.1.156) that is connected over the LAN to an IP-E101S Serial Server (192.168.1.151).  
The software asks for a COM port at startup, hence the IP-E101S software (Serial-IP) allows me to first setup the Serial Server (this works and it is showing a status as ‘connected’ but the COM port is ‘not mapped’).
Next I have to install a virtual COM port utility on my desktop.  However, when I do so, I get an error: “Error E0000235 in SetupDiCallClassInstaller(DIF_REGISTERDEVICE)”.
Apparently this is an issue because of my 64-bit system being incompatible with a 32-bit application (according to “Google”).  
I already have 2 virtual COM ports on my system, because of another application (Blackberry) which DID manage to setup the COM ports … so it should be possible.

My question is: What is the best (free) utility to install  a virtual COM port on my W7 64bit desktop that I can assign to the Serial Server?

I've installed application on Windows 2003 32 bit  machine and it works again.
It looks like a compatibility issue between 32 bit application , 32 bit or 64 bit virtual COM utility on 64bit W7

 Always welkom expirience with IP-E101S Serial Server on W7 Pro 64 bit machine
