How to install the Microsoft Loopback adapter in Windows 7

February 3, 2009

Microsoft Loopback adapter

For some reason, the Add New Hardware wizard is missing the Microsoft Loopback adapter in the Control Panel in the Beta build of Windows 7 (build 7000). That makes it rather hard to install the loopback adapter. However, you can actually still start the wizard following these instructions.

Click on the Windows Orb (The old Start button) or press the WIN key.

Type hdwwiz.

Select the Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) option and click Next.
