Since Windows 8 is now available for students via DreamSpark (former MSDNAA) I'm sure this question might be asked by several people.

Is there any driver for the Xonar Phoebus available, that works with Windows 8?

I have asked Asus-support the same question but until now they dont care about giving an answer.

Anyway win7-drivers for xonar phoebus seem to work with win8 for now.
Tested this with win8 CP and beta .20 drivers on my system.

However it is important to activate win7-compatibility mode prior to running setup.exe under win8 because otherwise the installation quits with a massage like "platform not supported".
