Windows Update - Creative Sound Card

  Pine Man 09:44 22 Nov 2008

I have a PCI Express X-Fi Xtreme Audio sound card and the last driver I installed was version 1.03.0001 created on 5th May 2008.

Windows Update has just installed a new Creative driver for my sound card version created on 17th October 2008 and it seems to be ok.

BUT when I look on Creatives site click here the latest driver is still version 1.03.0001 of 5th May 2008 and a search reveals no trace of the one Windows Update installed!

I am running Vista. Anybody any ideas?

normally the MS drivers are well behind the originals[they spend ages testing them, might even be the same driver post testing]. I use creative drivers,I am using their latest beta for my audigy2 and pleased with it on vista.

Thanks for your response.

You're probably right. Microsoft aren't known for rushing into things apart from, maybe, Vista ;-))
