The required virtual machine network driver could not be found

I just finished a clean install on my dev machine (Win 7 - 64Bit; VS2008 Pro; VS2010 Pro).
I can't get my network adapter functional.
I think I have done all that's required: installed VPC 2007 by installing "Windows6.1-KB958559-x64-RefreshPkg.msu" and "WindowsXPMode_en-us.exe", both downloaded for Win7-64Bit.
Since that didn't work I unistalled the adapter (rebooted the physical pc) and installed the adapter again by extracting it from the installer, as explained here:
I have no more ideas left.
Anybody can help me here?
 Adapter is installed NE2000 is enabled Still  vpc network driver could not be found
