Topic: HDSP 9652 & Win 7 64-bit - is firmware upgrade required?
I've got an HDSP 9652 that's run well under Win XP 32-bit for years but the machine died and the replacement machine is running Win 7 64-bit. Now, I have installed the most recent driver (but not rebooted yet) but because I do some work in Linux I've been using older firmware for years. (Rev. 104 or 105 maybe?) What is the minimum level of firmware required to use Win 7 64-bit with this card?
I tried running the firmware updater to at least get the current firmware revision level but so far I cannot even get it to run. It may require that I run it as 32-bit or something else but I didn't want to do that without asking as I didn't find any specific instructions in the readme. So, has anyone tested the firmware updater using an old firmware revision on the card and then updating it in a new Win 7 64-bit machine?
If I still had a Win XP machine with PCI slots I'd move the card there to update but I don't even have that at this point so I really need it to work in this machine.
