Win95/97 drivers project for HD Audio?

9 posts in this topic

Is there any attempt making a new driver for HD Audio hardware for Win95/OSR/97/98? It seem the Win95 DDK was totally scrubbed from the Net. Otherwise, Win9x could be the fastest windows OS around on new Hardware.

Meanwhile, DOS software has solved the problem with HD Audio hardware by having direct access to it. Application such as MPXPlay (media player) already run happily and recognized those hardware.

Not only HD Audio hardware, USB support too could improved to work if there any drivers projects for Win9x. Is there anywhere else in the Internet still keep those Win9x DDK?

Unlike the 98DDK which can be found, the 95DDK has never been a free download. It was only available for download to MSDN subscribers and AFAIK it is nowhere to be found on the entire internet including file sharing networks. I don't think you can even get it by buying old MSDN CDs or such because I believe it was a download only.

As for the 98DDK, if you don't have it and you want it, you can follow some links in this thread :

Sounds cool to me, I can't see any threatening EULA or such in there. Thanks for uploading this, you are very resourceful I see.
