Windows 7: Auzen X-Fi Prelude 7.1 installation

Auzen X-Fi Prelude 7.1 installation

I purchased a Auzen Prelude audio card but, unfortunately there was no CD/DVD with it, that would contain the Drivers for Win 7 64bit OS that I would need in getting it to work on my Desktop.
Are there any pitfalls that I should be aware of, when I go looking for the Drivers on the Internet?
Some seem to think that I can use the Creative Sound X-Fi drivers in place of the Auzen drivers.
Is this true?

From Creative's web site (

The Auzen X-FI™ Prelude 7.1 sound card marks the first time Creative has permitted a third-party sound card vendor to use the Creative X-FI™ chipset in its own sound card design.
So, yes, you should be able to use the Creative drivers for your Auzen card.
