There is a non-installer, and there you uncompress and use Device Manager to search and browse to update driver.
I always tend to use Troubleshoot Compatibility option for all installers for now.Mac Pro Windows 7 9800GTX/8800GT 4 x WD Caviar 640, Mac OS X (10.5.7), ACD 23" Sonnet Tempo E4P APC RS1500
Currently Being ModeratedJun 3, 2009 12:24 PM (in response to The hatter)Thanks! That worked! I thought the installer did both---i.e. uninstall the old driver and replace it with the new one. It didn't; rerunning it fixed everything.
Unfortunately, the main issue I had with the prior drivers is still unsolved: sound is "tinny" compared with OSX. It actually almost sounds monaural, although it is not (checked using the Configuration tool, which emits separate sounds on the L and R speakers in turn).
I never installed Vista on this machine, so I can't tell if it's a Win7 issue or just poor drivers overall.iMac 24" and MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
