    via hd audio 100% working

    i can confirm it works in compatibility mode for Windows 7 SP1 , but after instalation you must set compatibility mode to hd vdeck software stored in "C:\Program Files (x86)\VIA\VIAudioi\VDeck\VDeck.exe" its working 100%

    following the message via HD driver to be updated
    I changed via hd audio to win7 compatibility and yes it does work and opens in control panel.
    However a nasty side effect is the windows sidebar and all gadgets failed to work
    I had a volume control gadget in there but it knocked out all gadgets ie no sidebar capability
    Uninstalling via hd software all gadgets were restored.

    error :

    My friend i dont know english so much but i can help you with this trouble!! the tips .... right click on SETUP.EXE driver, propieties---> compatibility---> clic on box OS (windows 7) and run as admin!! ___> apply---> accept.
    start the setup.exe again and install like any program. when the driver is installed, the OS will open a message: the vdeck is not compatible with this OS. later you try to open the vdeck app and the OS show you a option ( run this app with the compatibility mode/the application run correctly) you select the firt option (compatibility mode) and BUALA!!!! your vdeck is running perfectly.
    I was searching a solution in this forum but NOTHING. later id try and GOD help me!!!!
