Apparently this driver was newer than the Vista driver version 8.
The former warning out of date is only a generic warning.
On my Vista installation I had recently updated the DisplayLink software to version 7. I think a clearer wording and explanation will prevent confusion for users. All times are GMT.

I found out that Windows 7 has a built-in driver for the 00.0 card version 8. Newer driver versions are not applicable to this card, probably because my laptop is already 5 years old but still working well.

Last edited by pimjoosten; at I however want to point you to my suggestion in the last paragraph of my first post about the wording of the warning and the link in that warning. Since there are no newer drivers available I can then put this warning into perspective and decide that if it works well, perhaps there is no issue at all. These users may also be challenged by the same confusion as I was when installing the software.
