Can I use MaXiO under Windows Vista/7/8/10?
We provide a driver for MaXiO
032, MaXiO 032e
and MaXiO XD for Windows
Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 - supporting 32-bit
and 64-bit systems from Version 1.09 and upwards (we always recommend to use
the latest version of the driver, particularily the installation
of version 1.19 or higher).
In order to make sure that this driver works with the MaXiO PCI or MaXiO PCIe
card, the firmware on the card has to be at least AA550008, not
lower. If the last digits are lower than "...0008", an upgrade of
the firmware is needed, or the newer drivers will not work with your card and
you will not be able to use it under newer Windows versions.
To check the firmware, select the About dialog in the MaXiO control
panel software. It will show the firmware like this:
As you can see under Firmware Signature, the version is displayed there.
If your card requires a firmware update, please contact the ESI
technical support and mention that you have a MaXiO PCI or PCIe card and
you need to upgrade the firmware. We will then send the firmware upgrade utility
and instructions to you by email. Please note that the upgrade has to be performed
under Windows XP, it cannot be done under Windows Vista, 7 or 8.
