I need to replace the "Standard Modem Driver" from a RT7Lite modified Win7 O/S. This is NOT vendor specific!

The "Modem" group of drivers was intentionally not added (who needs a modem anymore) when compiling a Win 7 Pro O/S thru RT7 Lite that up to this point (5 years later) was not missed. Without completely re-complying a new O/S (which is a huge project), there must be a way to selectively re-add this single item (drivers and/or protocols).

This without the actual DVD, just the ISO or the separate original files are available.

The reason is for 2 devices that use' USB serial port' communications that apparently need this. No, I'm not making this up, it's a educated guess after long troubleshooting the problem.

why not use Device Manager and then use the hardware ID string from the drop down menu for the modem and then google it?

It should allow you to find the appropriate driver.

Well, it wasn't the missing 'stock' modem drivers. So much for a logical guess.

This isn't a "modem", just something similar. They are the correct drivers (two different devices), it's something else in the O/S that is missing.
