yes they seem not to have released anything yet.. i do not foresee anything whatsoever until the end of Autumn at least. the usual drivers with W7 compatibility do not work on W8

Hi all, this is my fully working method to install Xonar DX driver on W8 Enterprise 64 bits :
  • Dowload the driver from ASUS (windows 7 64 bit OS), it's a RAR file
  • UnRAR
  • Use the device manager and uninstall any messy audio driver if required
  • Scan for new PnP devices, new unknown audio device will be shown
  • Install manually the driver : the .INF file is in : ...\PCI-DX-110512-7.12.8.1794(W7-FR)\WIN7\SoftwareDriver\driver\XonarDX.INF
  • At this point you have sound but not the Audio CP and you cant install it with a setup.exe
  • Copy the ...PCI-DX-110512-7.12.8.1794(W7-FR)\WIN7\Customapp in your program files (x86) folder, make a shortcut or stick it to welcome screen

The CP works ok, only main volume button seems not to work, but waiting for the official ASUS release, this is my best solution, the UNI drivers did not work at all on my system.

Hope it will help.

P.S. PCI-DX-110512-7.12.8.1794(W7-FR) was for me (i have a french W8 release), anyway you understood the steps i hope^^

I must point that I got a full W8 Enterprise final 64 bit release (vol license), not a preview nor a trial, my build is
9200.win8_rtm.120725-1247 to be exact (reg value)

I did this on a 32 bit normal version of W8 (not Enterprise) and it did not work.. so I must be missing something or your solution is only valid for the 64 bit flavour. thanks

asus released the beta drivers for the DX a few days ago and they work just fine.
