Plug in MIDI Mate but do not click Next yet. Instead, wait a few seconds for the automatic device driver installation.

Please note that in some cases it is possible that Windows Vista will show an error message that says the installation could not be completed. If that happens, just ignore the message. This is not important as the actual driver installation is finalized by the installer later.
Once Windows shows no further messages, you can finish the installation by clicking Next in the MIDI Mate Driver Setup dialog shown above. The installation will be fininalized now and you will see that the LED inside MIDI Mate gets switched on. The installation is now finished and you can start using MIDI Mate in your applications.
