We prove that the (two) connections, or commuting squares, on the Coxeter-Dynkin diagram _E_7 produce a subfactor with principal graph _D_10. This was conjectured by J.-B. Zuber in connection with modular invariants in conformal field theory, and solve the last case of computing the flat parts of the connections on Coxeter-Dynkin diagrams with index less than 4.
