    About your only choice is to get an IR pod for your computer. There are no USB drivers for Windows 64 bit, any version.

    If you have Windows 7 Pro, Enterprise, or Ultimate, you should be able to download XP Mode for free. I'm not sure if you can have VPC associate a USB port with XP Mode without having drivers for it, although it's worth a shot. Even if you can't, you can at least use the much better PD 4.x and just associate an IR port (as mentioned by Hook) with XP Mode.
    Palm Desktop 4.x and older was never designed to run on 64-bit and most 64-bit OSes don't support 32-bit drivers.

    You may find the post on the same subject for Desktop 6.2 (and a Z22) helpful.
