ASUS Xonar family of soundcards, version 126.96.36.1995, dated 10/03/2012 for Windows 8 and Windows 7.
This is a special release. The best drivers available.
I've modified the setup program so that a single and small package will support both Windows 8 and Windows 7.
Windows Vista is not supported due to the fact that the C-Media security catalog used to sign the drivers simply does not support (is not valid for) Windows Vista.
Please DO NOT re-release my modified package in any way. Thanks for your understanding.
