    Windows 7 Prof and Creative Sound Blaster® X-Fi

    I will get, in a few days, a new system specially desgined for MC5.5.1

    In this system I ordered a  Creative Sound Blaster® X-Fi card. I received this card today, and the system will be delivered in a few days.

    In the box, there is a CD with the install in Windows XP. I've visited the site of Creative and saw that there is a driver (2.18.0015) especcially for Windows7 64 bits, as is my system.

    I want to know:

    1. is there somebody who has this card and uses it in W7?

    2. If yes, did they install the card with the drivers that W7 offers or did they install with the XP driver?

    3. if somebody installed the card with the driver, especially made W7, I look to know if there any special points of interest.

     

    MC6.0.5, QT version 7.7.3, AvidFX 6.2(64bit), Squeeze Pro 8.5.0.41, AvidDVD 6.4.4 (still in my system, but I don't use it anymore), Boris Continuum... [view my complete system specs]

    I mentioned that driver in my post.

    But maybe W7 is clever enough to install the correct driver when it detecs the card?

    I install the driver myself and I don't leave Windows to do it for me.

    If Windows install the Control Panel as well (which comes with the drivers of SB) then

    there is no problem of doing so.

    You need the Control Panel to set the card on Audio Mode.
