Ess Solo 1 Es1938s Windows 7 Driver Zip
Now you just need to save the three ESSAUDIO files and the lines from your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT and you'll be good to do an install again anytime. I was working on this for a Gateway SOLO 5300 laptop and successfully am running my old DOS games without having to mess with windows or use PC Speaker. I may try to experiment with VXD driver to see if I can adjust any settings VIA Windows and if the INI Breaks or something,
ess solo 1 es1938s windows 7 driver zip
You need to load appropriate files in config.sys before loading essolo.com. Can't remember but I think it's essolo.drv and esfm.drv in config.sys. I don't even think you need the Windows driver (only the plain dos driver files from the package).
Sorry to wake up an old thread, but after getting an ESS Solo-1 from eBay and installing it, initially I couldn't manage to get it to work under DOS and Windows 98 SE using the drivers provided on Phil's computer lab website: -es1938s-solo-1.html , on a K8M890-based motherboard (MSI K9VGM-V), which has TDMA support, same as K8T890-based motherboards as reported in PCI sound cards and Chipsets from various manufacturers...
Secondly, the driver provided in solo1_drv_w9x_4.12.01.1165.zip (WDM version 4.12.01.1165) did not work at all for me in Windows 98 SE despite the card using IRQ 5, and working fine in DOS/XP/Linux. The "ESS SOLO-1 PCI AudioDrive" driver would have a yellow exclamation mark with the error message "This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10.)".
In win98se I can choose "WDM" or "VXD" drivers. With WDM no Dossupport, VXD provides Dossupport, installs essolo.sys/com and "Solo1-Dos-Emulation" this worked just fine for SB-Support and Adlib/Opl music (388), but after I made a Win98se reinstall the "Solo-Dos-Emulation" does not work anymore for the Adblib/Opl Sound in Dos-Windows while running win98se.
