The patch description doesn't say anything about this fix but it works perfectly none the less.

If you don't install the patch you will see that IE locks up and most of the control panel is non operational.

It's best to install both the Win7 Asus Xonar drivers and the Vista patch before rebooting. The patch only takes one second to install.
Reposted this fix for Asus Xonar owners.

Happy boy now, thank you!

And now it's pumped again.

Have changed nothing, and the mic is back to being all garbled etc.

Tried a driver reinstall, but just the same.

Windows 7 Professional x64

Creative Labs X-Fi Elite and SB Audigy 2 Platinum Professional both work w/ updated drivers from website. You might as well throw the included driver cd's in the garbage. (Although they DO make great coffee cup coasters for my desk!)

Windows 7 Professional x64

I can't test the optical output, only the analog, 5.1. I've had a great experience with using the Windows 7 64 drivers from Asus for the P5Q PRO Turbo motherboard onboard sound VIA VT1708S.

The file i downloaded is named Windows 7 ids it as dated 5/8/2009 from VIA Technologies, Inc.

I've tested the sound in MS Flight Simulator X, Caesar IV, and The Sims 3 as well as music in iTunes. I was a little concerned when I bought the board that it had VIA onboard sound rather than Realtek, but I am very pleased with the VIA onboard sound. At least on the analog side the drivers definitely work.
