    Hi,

    The 4.01 version has been released last year and I wondered if a new version of 7max for windows 32-bits has been planned ?

    Greetings,

      I don't know how to improve 7max 4 for 32-bit windows 2000/xp.
      But you can use 7max 5.* , if your system is windows x64, windows 2003 and maybe for Windows Vista too:

      I'm disappointed that the latest version don't support Windows 2000 nor Windows XP 2002!->(in fact, that's what Windows XP is called, because it's before Windows 2003)

      Because Windows 2003 is expensive and many people won't be using Windows Vista for a good while!

      In fact, Windows Vista hasn't even been released yet!

      I wonder what could be done?

      But at least 4.01 is working on my Asus A7V8X-X system with Windows XP SP2, Radeon 9000 Pro and ADI 1980 audio codec on board.

      Also, I don't have an Athlon 64 yet and thus I didn't even try to get Windows XP 64-bit Edition.

      I won't have an Athlon 64 system until at least this spring and I'm expected to spend at least around $300 dollars for an Athlon 64 motherboard and Athlon 64 processor. It's probably gonna be at least an Athlon 64 3000+.

        7-max 5.* for Vista/2003/64-bit is stable. I don't know way to make such stable version for win2000/32-bit winXP.
        New versions of windows provides API for 7-max.
        Old versions of windows don't provide such API. So 7-max 4.00 create such API, and it works directly with hardware via driver. That way is not safe.

      I may have to report some bugs, then may be fixable for Windows XP 2002 and Windows 2000.

      But, I wonder if we can make a list of which drivers cause a crash when using the /3GB option?

      We should.

      I already have a list that's safe for the /3GB option:

      Catalyst 3.2

      Kerio Personal Firewall 4.2.2

      Via AGP driver 4.30a

      The ADI 1980 audio driver from Asus
