13 Jun 2009   #11

Windows 7 build 7229 x64

Warning: since build 7127 x64 (I don't know if the same problem happens with x32 version) the latest asus xonar d2 vista 64 (Version completely breaks windows seven !

The driver is here:

Asus audio center won't load anymore, but the driver seems to work fine (you can still access/manage your audio levels/inputs/outputs by right clicking the volume icon on the taskbar).
