Additional Notes

Very flexible/forgiving driver pack that saw only limited release. (Probably let people jump versions up). Loads inbuilt Mike Boost, Treble/Bass scaler Should be for anyone from Win 98 Ensoniq PCI, Sound Blaster AWE 32, ES1371,ES1373, SB PCI 16 etc. to get quality XP sound working. Can install right over current install usually but if NG - remove all traces of previous install attempts of other versions, including device manager icon & stray file copies then "fire and forget". EAPCI2M.ECW (2Mb) library file included. Copy over the EAPCI8M.ECW (8Mb) from your old pack and select it in hardware devices after install for increased sound quality (MAPI/Waveset). Complete version as packed by Creative. Late 2001 PnP style version for W2000 makes it compatible for W2000 and XP.
