Just to report:

A user at CPDN has just posted that they sorted out a CUDA driver problem for Windows 7 (beta, obviously) by going to Microsoft Update and accepting a pre-release driver, also recommended by NVidia. He hadn't been able to get a working driver any other way.

Personally, I've always found Windows Update NVidia drivers a bit problematic on older systems, so I've tended to avoid them - but if it's the only way for Windows 7, you may have to do it.
