Can't connect my Lumia 520 to Vista

Hello, i've been trying to connect my lumia 520 to my pc, which runs Windows Vista SP2, but everytime it asks me for the driver/controller. I found this in FAQ to solve it:

 

  1. Go to Microsoft Update download catalog page (link works only in IE) http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/home.aspx.
  2. Search for 'Windows Phone WinUSB'.
  3. Add the driver to the download basket and press view basket to proceed checkout.
  4. Download the file to your computer.
  5. Extract downloaded .cab file with eg. Winzip.
  6. In Device manager click 'Update Driver software', 'Browse my computer for driver software', search for the directory you extracted the files and click Next.
  7. The "RM-xxx|Nokia Lumia xxx" will be replaced by "Windows Phone WinUSB"

When i add the driver to the basket it instantly disappears. So i've not been able to install it. What can i do in stead?
