unofficial PowerCore 4.5 beta 71

Contributor - Level 2
Dear PowerCore Community,
Happy Holiday season,
thanks for your continuos engagement and for those who believe in Santa Clause
:
We are privately using PowerCore in our Studios and we want to keep it that way. Therefor the PowerCore drivers are adapted to build using latest software technologies and libraries, following all the changes required to keep PowerCore compatible with current operating systems.


We wanted to share that effort with the community but have to advice that this release is not maintained by TC. Please don't bother support if anything is not working! TC is not involved in any of the development anymore. TC kindly offered this place for sharing.

    Before I read this I succesfully installed my two Powercore X8 devices on Windows10 with 4.4.3.f62 and 4.5.b064 AFTER GETTING THE RIGHT CHIPSET UPDATES FOR THE MOBO.....(I did get a BSOD when loading my list of plugins, but that was a list with virus input, assimilator compensator and TC compensator included...not a very realistic situation, maybe there was a signal overload.....)

    Gigabyte GA-X99-UD3Rev1.0---F22g BIOS, Intel 5960x, Windows8/10 64bit, Cubase 8.5.2, Belkin Fwcard with TI Chipset drivers, Powercore 4.3.3.62 plus 4.5.064 for (2x) Powercore X8

    What does "does not work" exactly mean?
