meaning for \d and [\d] I can't see the reason for that. \d *to me*
means 'any digit', where [\d] stands for '[any digit]'. Especially
if you're looking for more complex patterns, the meaning of \d (and
so forth) should not be altered when used in a character class.
(NoteTab _does_ find a space with this pattern: [\s]. Help has even
a better example:
"\b any blank (white) space including space, tab, form-feed, etc.
Equivalent to [\s\t\f\n\r]"
But, if you try to run the latter you will find that it finds an f

^[\d|\s|\.]+. finds "0 0 0. h" at the beginning of a line...

job. I don't know what prevents you from running the install
program. Saying something about missing drivers or components would
be a very wild guess from my side, possibly leading you further away
from a solution <g>.
