    A simple question, will there be Windows 10 64bit drivers for the Asus Xonar Essence STX any time soon?

    Windows 8 ones will be the exact same thing. :)

    I would be very surprised if they didn't work.

    Does it not work until Windows 10?

    No, works perfectly under Windows 7 but, do want to move to Windows 10 before the free upgrade offer runs out. Plenty of time though.
    Tried those under Windows 7 and couldn't persuade them to install but, all is well on official drivers, under W7. Playing music with Foobar 2000 using the ASIO drivers.

    Well that's pretty rubbish - I have exactly the same card and was planning on upgrading in a couple of weeks to Windows 10... I certainly won't be now unless Asus sort something out.

    They flatly refused to install on my machine, whilst the official Asus drivers (W7 drivers from the website) installed without issue. Not so sure they are better.

    internet and PC worked fine on win 8.1, I updated to win 10 prof 64-bit on i5-3570k Asus p8z77-v lx mobo with 8gig ram. win 10 update went well but couldnt connect to internet, so rolled back to 8.1 and everything works fine again

    I ran mini tool and it showed lots of MS Win Immersive Shell & Software Protection Platform Service Application errors, lots of Service control manager system errors, NS Office session errors, code integrity errors

    I tried installing Win10 Auto Installation Program (SID:1743532) from Realtek for Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

    Also tried the advice in social.technet.microsoft no-ethernet-on-windows-10 and in answers.microsoft updating-a-driver

    I cant use win 10 if no internet so are Asus drivers or win10 to blame?

    Maybe it just needs a fresh install over the top?

    Further to my previous postings. Have been running W10 for a couple of weeks now having run the upgrade on a clean W7 install. Sorted out the early niggles (all minor) and the Asus Xonar Essence STX is running perfectly on Asus W8.1 drivers, playing music with Foobar 2000 using ASIO. :D:D:D

    My AI Suite simply no longer works post windows 10 install. The CPU temp reads as about 32-34C whatever the actual temp, and therefore the fan curves are worthless.

    It might be worth uninstalling and doing a cleanup for AI suite as apparently it doesn't fully uninstall itself. I found a few monitoring programs had changed the readings for what I was trying to monitor to something else, a different stat.

    I'm in a similar boat. AI Suite seemed to work OK after my free upgrade to Windows 10, but wouldn't install after I did a fresh Windows 10 install. Same with the Xonar driver.

    I now control my CPU fan via the motherboard BIOS (less control but it works) and use the unofficial unified driver mentioned above for my Xonar.

    Windows 8 and 10 have the same drivers as far as I know...
