Re: Release Candidate of Sound DriverPacks open for public testing!

A quick test would be to just delete the .ini from the root of the sound DriverPacks and then repackage/rebuild your disc and test.
The dependent files are all listed in the driver .inf so theoretically everything else is "fluff".
I kinda like this idea.  Having a Third Party DriverPack to cover additional control panels for all the DriverPacks.  That would save considerable space and make it easier for admins who want a stripped OS (like we had at work)!

But we can go overboard with the Third Party DriverPacks though.  Maybe we should think about "Official" DriverPacks BASE support for the language DriverPacks and think about adding "control panel" support.  Hmmm....

Alright! Just the kind of reply I was waiting for.

I don't quite understand the function of those .ini files, but whatever, I'll follow your "one-line" (but seemingly thorough!) walkthrough and report back in a few days. (EDIT: that's because I have to download from school.)

Exactly! Just because (as a part-time admin) space matters.

I'm currently in Germany, but I'll start working on this idea when I get back.
Helmi, check your email! wink

Oh, nice. I wonder if they still got any "concentration camps" remnants over there.

Concerning the driverpacks, I've done the test with the 90902 & 90903 (posted on page 2). I'm not too sure how "good" those news are for us. But let me publish facts first and then you masters can analyze those and then tell us what it all means:

- first, good news: graphic driverpacks worked good on me! (NVIDIA GeForce 7300 LE);
- in the Device Manager, there are no yellow marks! (second good news);
- my onboard "HD audio" seem to work correctly, too! (only good news!?);
- now, for the audio drivers test (remember, .ini removed from root of .7z). I'll let you decide if those are good news or not!
- - I'm not too sure, but I think that in Control Panel, I had an item titled "Audio Console" that disappeared;
- - in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Creative," I have two items, so one more than I used to have;
- - I'm not too sure either, but I think that "Creative Audio Control Panel" was named "Creative Audio Console" before (does the same thing anyway);
- - I haven't seen anything about that "full-fledged" console, but only that good old "classic," and "sufficient-for-me," audio console;
- - the new item I've talked about earlier in the start menu folder is titled "Creative Software AutoUpdate," linking to "\Creative\Shared Files\Software Update\AutoUpdate.exe." That AutoUpdate software automatically fired up when Windows was installed and I logged in for the first time;
- - besides that somewhat annoying program, as far as I can tell everything is working as good as before.

Re: Release Candidate of Sound DriverPacks open for public testing!

RC sound packs worked fine on 2 laptops.
1 has sigmatel audio and the other has realtek audio.

@WolverineFan, the driver you have posted has been added.

I kinda like this idea.  Having a Third Party DriverPack to cover additional control panels for all the DriverPacks.  That would save considerable space and make it easier for admins who want a stripped OS (like we had at work)!

Exactly! Just because (as a part-time admin) space matters.

I am no longer sure making lots of efforts to save space would be such a good idea anymore, because the graphic driverpacks are now taking about 80 MBs of extra space. I think admins should thus as of current have two different disks in their possession: a CD bundled with drivers up to 2008 to use with computers lacking a DVD drive (thus being somewhat old), and a DVD bundled with up-to-date drivers for newer computers, i.e. the ones that possess a DVD drive and might contain recent hardware.

That being said, good job with the driverpacks, they are becoming really strong now. Long live XP!

Re: Release Candidate of Sound DriverPacks open for public testing!

Hello all,

I've just checked the preliminary version of these driver packs (as far as I remember they're 1 month old). Is there any proposal when will the final version released? Or more test effort is needed to release it? I'm looking forward for it! Awesome job, congratulation!

Re: Release Candidate of Sound DriverPacks open for public testing!

I'm working on finalizing them right now.
Expect final releases by the weekend! smile

Re: Release Candidate of Sound DriverPacks open for public testing!

Thanks for the post.
Hi guys, Im a newbie. Nice to join this forum.

Re: Release Candidate of Sound DriverPacks open for public testing!
