Based on the pre-2.0 dates and install script, I'm guessing these are Windows 1.x drivers but the readme doesn't actually say:

http://cd.textfiles.com/nightowl/carrs/017A/V1DSK.ZIP
http://cd.textfiles.com/nightowl/carrs/017A/V1DSK2.ZIP

It says it contains drivers for:
Conographics ConoVision 1440
Moniterm Viking I
Sigma Color 400
STB HT Chauffer
STB Multi Res
Tseng EVA
Video-7 Vega Deluxe with NEC Multisync Enhanced Color display
Vermont Microsystems Inc. Image Manager 1024
Wyse WY-700 High Resolution Display Adapter

Of course I don't have any of these cards to try out. (Might just see if the video 7 drivers does anything on a Video 7 VGA)

It looks like they are Windows 1.x drivers, according to this page on ToastyTech: http://toastytech.com/guis/misce.html. It mentions the Image Manager 1024 and the Wyse WY-700.

I guess driver is considered for Windows 1.01 - 1.03.

I don't know it works on Windows 1.04 or 2.0x.

Ok, looking closer the setup batch file is designed for use with Windows 1.03. The drivers might technically work under other versions but the setup batch doesn't quite like them.

And the Video 7 EGA driver here does not quite work with the Video 7 VGA card.
