There is very little difference as far as how Vista and Win7 handle drivers and the like as far as I know, so anything that works for Vista should work for Win7

I know this thread is a bit old, but I finally found the website that detailed the instructions on how I got my PS3 Controller working on my Vista64 system, and this should work for Win7 64 bit, too.

The instructions are detailed for an iPod, but it will actually work for any USB device you are trying to use with a 64 bit windows OS.

After you have the USB filters installed, you then need to get this program to actually activate your controller:

After you have everything installed, (be sure to get a tool to automatically set Windows to disable driver signature enforcement or else you WILL have blue screen crashes! I use ReadyDriver Plus) make sure you have your PS3 controller plugged in. Then follow these steps:

Run sixaxis64
Press your PS button
Run sixaxis64 again

Then go into your control panel>game controllers and test to make sure all the buttons work.

Hope this helps some people out there!
