Creative releases new NT 4.0 Sound Blaster drivers

Creative Labs this week released new Sound Blaster SB16/SB32/AWE32/AWE64 drivers for Windows NT 4.0. The drivers are for x86 versions of Windows NT 4.0 only. You can download the drivers (930K) from the What's new section of the Creative Labs FTP site

A cautious note: Installation of these drivers is not for the faint of heart, especially if you've installed Service Pack 3. My advice is to install them if you have an AWE32 or better and have previously only installed the drivers that come on the NT CD-ROM. Creative's newer drivers give nice wavetable and 3D sound support not found in the NT 4 CD-ROM version. Make sure you follow the instructions in the included README file carefully
