Topic: RME Driver Installer for Windows (USB / FireWire)
many years our drivers were based on Windows own installation routine and mechanism. In Windows 7 Microsoft removed the automatic start of the Driver Software Update dialog, which removed a part of the convenience and system integration. Therefore we are now offering our drivers as Driver Installation Wizard, means a program that guides you through the process (german/english) and copies all driver files to the correct places. It also updates existing driver files and can even remove the driver and itself via the standard Control Panel/Software dialog.
As usual with these installers when performing a first installation on a naked system it is recommended to run the installer first, then plug in the audio interface, so Windows can not only start its P&P process, but will also find the drivers needed.
The new driver 1.032 for our USB interfaces
and 3.076 for our FireWire interfaces
are our first public release and include the latest ASIO 2.3 option for MMCSS.
We appreciate any testing and feedback!
