    It's a full install of playcenter 3, it should delete version 2 as it installs. Normal creative path is to uninstall & reboot, then install the new stuff.
     
  5. I had no end of trouble with the one from the ASIA website. But i downloaded the driverpack for the european site, that includes updates for all the applications and also the drivers. Be intresting to see if anyone else had problems with the ones downloaded directly from here.

    The asian drivers were a major f**k up on my behalf.. couldnt get shut of the damn things, & that tipped the balance on the old format c: /q command :rolleyes:
     
  7. Man i feel lucky compared, at installation mine just sat there at the driver stage. Then I had to reboot then my sound kept cutting in half, it would play like half the stuff then stop..weird.
     
  8. But (and i bet people can sympathise with this) i'm getting that, 'i'm gonna have to reinstall everything again soon' feeling. You know when things just don't seem to be going right.

    are you (NegativeFactor) saying that the asian drivers on this webpage are worthless but the ones on the euro.site are cool?

    and( GoNz0 ) you are saying you had prob. w/ them but only on you behalf?



    so should i d/l the drivers on this page or get them from the euro. page and if the euro page, NegativeFactor do you have a url for me to go to?

    The asian 1's I got installed in asian !!!!!!!!!!! bunch a ?????'s cause I didnt have the relevant language packs installed.. but when i installed em all.. still ??????'s instead of words.

    The europe 1's have a nice facelift and work fine.
     
  12. I'm not saying they are worthless mate, they just didn't work for me. I'm sure they have worked fine for other people.

    I believe the one's on the euro site are the same version (correct me if i'm wrong anyone) so I myself would prefer to download them from there anyhow.

    Here's the link:
