Windows mobile device manager download for Windows 7 gives an error saying it is incompatible with Windows 7?

joelb59 asked on
I have just upgraded Vista 64 bit to Windows 7 64 bit and I am trying to sync my Windows 6.1 device. I  have downloaded the newest Windows Device Manager from the Microsoft website but when I try to install it I get an error message saying the version (the latest) is incompatible with the version of windows I am using. I don't get why this issue is not corrected yet.
