I would like to point this out that this thread is about "Working/Not-Working Programs with VISTA BETA 2". Asking all users of Windows Vista Beta 2 to type in their experiences on what's working and what's not in this new operating system, so it may help other users as well.

For requesting drivers use:

Software Troubleshooting:
Issues related with your OS, applications, system security, configuration of network, browsers, customizations, driver support, tweaking, audio-video playback problems and programming can be discussed here.

peace

Well driver(s) are software also so there's no problem to help people about it. Isn't It good that people will get all their Vista related answers just in one thread?;)

Enjoy

P.S. And by the way couldn't understand what's your point is?

Re: ** Working/Not-Working Programs with VISTA BETA 2 **

Sorry for the earlier post,
This should help. I got this driver in my WinXP and when i install Vista, the driver for the LAN card were auto-configurated into it. Download the file below, if u need my driver Or click here to download it from microsoft.

http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/prices.aspx?itemId=1186271&stext=
Realtek RTL Gigabit and Fast Ethernet NIC Driver (Windows 98/Me/2000/XP)
by Realtek Semiconductor
Drivers for RTL8139/810x/8169/8110 series. Windows Logo Certification Drivers for OEM manufacturer. Version 6.41 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.

Regarding soundmax.. i think its onboard with the motherboard. What's your motherboard no. and company make ?

I have Intel 865GBF and vista didn't auto-configured it. I had to use the motherboard CD and install the sound drivers from there and after a restarted, everything worked out for me. Try the motherboard CD or try
http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/ to search for your drivers.
If your motherboard is Intel - try http://www.intel.com/ and choose your motherboard no. and search for soundmax.

Thx for the recommendation - But i ignored it ;)
and installed Freelancer 1.0
It installed in 2:43 mins.
Startup intro didn't work. Tried to play it manually in WMP11. It got stucked and had audio-video sync problems.
But anyway I started the game. And wow .. being almost more than 2 years i last played that game. So i played it and now at level 7. I LOVE THIS GAME !!!
I went to settings and use FULL audio settings and FULL video settings. Its working like a babyyyy ....
