Run a Window 95 driver in a WNT workstat

By efrumento ·
I want to run a Window 95 driver in a WNT workstation environment. The manufacturer told me that there are no plans to develop an equivalent software for WNT.

The program I find trouble with may be loaded down from http://www.yamaha-xg.com/english/xg/utility/soft/95drv-e.zip

I may also send you a copy of the file if you wish.

Thanks for your support.

Regards,

Enrique

You cannot use a Win95 driver on Windows NT. Thought 95 and NT look the same GUI wise, they are vastly different internally and require totally different driver models.

It's impossible to run a 95/98 driver in NT4.0. The NT Kernel does not allow the different applications to work directly with the Hardware. Everything must go through that system, where only NT Drivers are acting with the Hardware. Thats why you must use NT Drivers.

I guess that the yamaha driver is for a sound card. In that case have a look if you can configure the soundcard as a Soundblaster compatible card. If ever, use those NT Drivers instead.

I would suggest checking with the manufacturer to see if the card can be set up to emulate a device they do have an NT driver for - such as Sound Blaster, etc. If not, I'm afraid you will have to purchase a card that is NT compatible.
