Hey, give me some credit. I did click the link. I just didn't get it because it wasn't aimed at me, that's all. And I know that now.

Ahh. I am hearing rumours that will fix the problem with some in Vista and the static noise.

Put yourself in Creative's place: Wouldn't you be indifferent to this company since they're not going to make any money off it?
I'm not sure about that. I'm pretty sure the EULA for the drivers that you agree to when you download them says:

1. You cannot redistribute them
2. You cannot modify them
3. You cannot reverse engineer them

Something like that

(a) the Software is not distributed for profit;
(b) the Software is used only in conjunction with Creative's family of products;
© the Software may NOT be modified; and
(d) all copyright notices are maintained on the Software

But I believe this is X-FI 2 software which as always works with the earlier.


But now Creative said they will support 3rd party drivers.

Quote:
"We have read the strong feedback about Creative's forum post regarding driver development by Daniel_k and other outside parties. Creative's message posted on our behalf by our Company spokesperson tried to address our concern about the improper distribution of certain software which is the property of other companies. However, we did not make it as clear as we would have liked that we do support driver development by independent third parties. The huge task of developing driver updates to accommodate the many changes in the Vista operating system and the extensive testing required, including the lengthy Vista certification requirements for audio, makes it very difficult for Creative to develop updates for all past products. Outside developers have been very helpful to Creative and our customers by developing updates for many of our Sound Blaster products, and we do support and appreciate these efforts. This however does not extend to the unauthorized distribution of other companies' property. We hope to work out a mutually agreeable method for working with Daniel_k in supporting his efforts in driver development. Going forward, we are committed to doing a better job of working more closely with third parties to support their development for our products and our customers."
