Trouble Installing New Kensington Keyboard

System: XP Pro_SP3

Kensington Pro Fit USB/PS2 Washable Keyboard

Model Number: M01067
Part Number: K64407

Heres is the Kensington list of software/driver downloads:

http://www.kensington.com/us/us/3693/software-drivers#.V4bh-oGOCho

I think this is the only logical download on the list for a basic corded keyboard:

Kensington KeyboardWorks For Desktops_v1.2
Filename: 62kkw_desktop.exe

There is a listing for multimedia keyboards, but the washable model is definitely not multimedia!
I've installed MouseWorks many times for corded mice.  There is nothing else except KeyboardWorks
for a corded keyboard plugged into a desktop.

I used Revo Uninstaller Pro to remove the old software.  I also deleted all remaining remnants from
the System and Registry.  I didn't want anything to screw up the smooth transition from old to
new keyboard.

After plugging in the new keyboard I installed the Kensington software and rebooted.  Something
is wrong.  It's like the software was never installed.  XP does not recognize the new keyboard or
drivers.

I reverted the system back to a previous image before the old keyboard was uninstalled.  (I'm not
using Windows System Restore.)  My computer at home is kind of a hybrid cross between a server
and a desktop.  A huge number of clean image backups allows me to undo almost anything.

I performed a Google search for Kensington model M01067.  Look at this page from the popular
PC Driver site:

http://www.pcdriverdownload.com/driver_info/kensington_pro_fit_usb_ps2_washable_keyboard

It says, "Unfortunately, the publisher of this driver has not submitted any valid download links.
If you know where we can find it, please notify us here."

Guys, I need to know if KeyboardWorks_v1.2 is the correct download for model M01067.  If not,
which package should I download?  

One last thing.  jaclaz had to upload the KeyboardWorks file to an alternate location.  I had a very
strange problem when I tried downloading directly from the Kensington site.  This post explains
what happened:

If you know which package I should download for model M01067, please upload the file to an
alternate location.  I don't think the problem I had a few days ago has been fixed.

I FINALLY FOUND THE CORRECT DESKTOP DRIVERS FOR MY KEYBOARD!  THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY
NOT LISTED AT THE KENSINGTON SITE!  I'M NOT GOING TO PHONE OR EMAIL KENSINGTON, SO
IT WILL REMAIN A MYSTERY!

Here they are at helpdrivers.com:

http://www.helpdrivers.com/keyboards/Kensington/KeyboardWorks/

Scroll down the page until you see Kensington KeyboardWorks for Desktops.

Filename: Kensington-K64356.exe (About 1MB)

Installed app.  It works perfectly.
