I have a unsupported program installed to a Win 7 bottle that needs a driver. USB/serial library. I have the driver file downloaded but haven't been able to find info on installing it to the bottle. Is this possible?

No it won't work. The device needs to be recognized by the "host" operating system. But even then there might be issues. In this case a VM with USB pass-through or a native Linux application (if any) is recommended.

Thanks for the info, at least I won't waste any more time trying to figure it out.
