Click Browse my computer for driver software.

In some cases, for Windows 7 the drivers are named differently, you can find the correct drivers under “Microsoft Common Controller for Window Class” when installing, then proceed to install the latest wireless receiver driver as explained above.

If these drivers are not showing up which in most cases will happen, download the official Xbox 360 drivers.
