Picaxe USB driver issue

I have just received my Picaxe 28X1 Starter Pack and, after an hour of trying, am still unable to install a driver for it. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit on an AMD Phenom II X6 1035T at 2.6 GHz (or so they say). I have tried the self-extracting, self identifying driver, I have tried the manual install. I am not getting anywhere... well, nowhere good. I have combed the rev-ed site. I assume that the driver was included on the CD I got with the starter. It seems likely that I am just missing something obvious.

Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks!  ~Allen
