When installing dopdf-7.exe to a windows 7 integral 64 bits, the printer installation does not succeed.
The error message that comes up is "Windows cannot install the DoPdf printer driver in kernel mode. Please get a compatible driver, contact the manufacturer".
Install log is here:

Parameters: "C:\Users\Phalin\AppData\Local\Temp\is-2BKFK.tmp\AMD64\dopdfin7.exe" -install -name "doPDF v7" -nodefault -languages en;fr -deflanguage fr -hidepages -regpdfkey -log

WinMain, installing printer: "doPDF v7"

PdfsInstaller.Initialize, operating system: Windows 7

PdfsInstaller.GetDefaultPrinterDriversFolder, printer drivers directory is: "C:\Windows\system32\spool\DRIVERS\x64\"

WinMain, copy profiles from printer:

WinMain, There were some ERRORS returning error code: 1797
User account is an administrator.

Software was run from a cmd prompt that was started "run as an administrator".

Policies explicitly authorize installation of printer drivers.
Already tried installing 6, 7.1, uninstalling properly the previous versions (getting rid of all files in wow64 etc)
Any suggetions ?
Best regards.
