Thanks. I don't know anything about perl, but how tough can it be? Is
there a handy download link?

It's more than a little awkward! If you can read perl, have a look in
Windows.pm from virt-v2v. It opens the guest image with libguestfs,
copies the driver file over and pokes some keys into the registry for
the driver and its entry in the CDD.
Everything else it does you can do manually after the guest boots.
