Windows 7 Device Drivers

Brien Posey Brien Posey Profile: Brien Posey

I ran into something interesting this morning that I wanted to tell you about. As you are no doubt aware, Windows 7 is built on the Vista kernel. In fact, some critics have referred to Windows 7 as Windows Vista 2.0.

Being that Windows 7 and Vista are so closely related, I had assumed that I would be able to use Windows Vista device drivers. Apparently that isn’t always the case though. This morning I had to replace the sound card in one of my computers. When the new sound card didn’t work, I decided to look for Windows 7 specific drivers. Sure enough, once I downloaded the Windows 7 drivers, the card began working.
