I could not get the setup to run on Win 7 64bit it would just crash. So I found this thread and tried these steps above on Win 7, same problem updater would crash. Tried as administrator... crash. Tried in XP compatibility mode... crash.
Finally I installed and fired up the XP mode feature in Windows 7, tried it there and lo and behold no crash! Installation failure instead!
I tried but could not complete the above steps as the link is for the 64 bit USB driver which won't work on XP32.
<- here is the 32 bit USB driver.
So finally the steps were:
1) Download and install the 64bit USB driver as in step 4 above.
2) Download and install XP Mode in Windows 7 (note this feature is for Ultimate, Professional and Enterprise versions of Windows 7 only - you will need another virtual machine software if you have Home Premium or lower).
3) Download and install 7zip in the XP Virtual PC.
4) Download and install the 32bit USB driver above.
5) Click the USB menu at the top of the Virtual PC session and attach the STM32 device.
6) Continue from the original step 5 posted by maulbongo.
I tried many other things and this was the ONLY way that worked for me. Complicated and long winded but I got there in the end, hope this helps someone. This is not good form from Corsair, their hardware products are known to be pretty good but their software is kinda holding them back.
