    ETA Windows 8 Drivers [Xonar Phoebus]

    @Asus-Support:

    Is there an ETA on Windows 8 drivers for Xonar Phoebus (at least beta)?

    In the meantime: Are Windows 7 drivers compatible with Windows 8?
    (If not official, perhaps via forced install through the device manager).

    Although Windows 8 will be released to public on october, 26th, it will be available for MSDN-Tech on August, 15th, which is why I am looking forward to win8-compatible drives for xonar phoebus.

    Thanks in advance.

    I was able to get the beta drives to work on windows 8 rp 64 bit, you need net frame work 3.5 which it said I needed. After the second I learned the update for window 8 was needed. everything is working fine no problems yet not even with online gaming.
    Hope this helps good luck.

    Some interesting info for Win8-users:
    I have got the Phoebus beta-drivers (.20) working with Win8 by using Win7-compatibility-mode.

    Without that mode just running setup.exe lead to an error-massage ("Platform not supportet") during installation process.
    But with compatibility-mode enabled (right-click on setup.exe -> compatibility) drivers and software install and work fine.
    (I am still using Win8 CP, so perhaps the above isnt necessary with RP or RTM.)

    However my initial question still stands:
    When will Win8 drivers for Xonar Phoebus be released?
    Please Asus-Support share some info regarding this.

    Thanks in advance
