Could you provide more information about what you're trying to do with it?

As to why whatevertheheckitis isn't in our repos, you should first discover why it's not in Debian's.

I created Windows 7 kvm machine and i am experiencing screen tearing on it and i wanted to test if virtio-win drivers will help. I downloaded virtio-win.iso from here but i couldn't install anything, i think it is only for Windows 8 and above.
