Prusa Mini Drivers Win7

I setup Octoprint on my laptop that happens to share the table with my Prusa Mini which is easier than moving my Pi, but have a single problem... Windows cannot find a driver for the mini. I've installed and reinstalled the latest Prusaslicer and installed the RAMBO driver package in the files (although I know that's technically for the MK3), but I cannot get it to install a driver and create a serial port, thus I cannot connect at all. The printer basically ignores it and acts like there's no USB plugged in. I've tested all the ports on my laptop, USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and a plethora of cables. Am I missing something? Trying Windows 7 Ultimate x64 for the additional information.

I think I know, I don’t think I know. I don’t think I think I know, I don’t think I think....

Maybe this vcp driver could help:

Just to check, you are connecting the laptop to the micro (or is it mini?) USB connector, not the 'full-size' one where the USB stick goes aren't you?

Yes, I'm connecting it to the microUSB port. I temporarily moved my Pi just to check to make sure it wasn't hardware related and Octoprint connected without issue. I'm going to be testing the STM32 drivers later today.

I hate double posting, but I can't edit my previous one. Anywho, installed the STM32 drivers and still nothing, even tried telling windows to use the included .inf file to no avail.
