Okay Using Asus VIA Audio Drivers for the motherboard I can get drivers installed and Vdeck loads. However when trying to switch to expert mode in Vdeck panel I get a Vdeck appcrash error and it closes. It will reopen but again if I try to switch to expert mode the software crashes. So it appears its either an Asus or a VIA software problem. With the VIA Drivers I don't get as far as I do with the Asus drivers plus the Asus driver is a 6.90c driver as opposed to 6.50a driver from VIA. Looks like I'll be waiting on Asus and VIA to fix this for Windows 7. It works just not able to select Optical out so stuck w/ 6 Channel Direct audio for now!!! hope this helps others and or the higher ups.
