You cannot change a file once uploaded, you can only edit the picture, description, and category. Include in the zip any texts, docs or pictures . Zip it up with 7zip or winzip.
Include a picture of the device or the disks if possible (only need be 800x800 pixels +/- .JPG) and Give a small description...
You can look at some of the other library posts to see what others have done....That is all I can think of.

Its a feature I've requested before. If you have a driver compilation which needs updating and you have good reasons, then Squallstrife can do it behind the scenes, atleast he did for me for the PowerVR driver compilation.

So, I got bored.
Installed 3.11 on Vmware, found out that there's a patching tool for the SVGA driver, figured that was a bit of a pain for your average pleb, bundled the patched driver with an inf file so your average joe can install it like a normal driver.
The main feature is simply that because it is renamed, and has a different name in the inf which clearly defines it as a vmware patched driver, it doesn't interfere with the standard drivers if for whatever reason that is an issue.

I... don't think a patched standard driver would be considered naughty, so here it is.
One thing I don't understand is that it works perfectly WITHOUT network, but goes haywire when the network is enabled.
I didn't make the patch, so I have no idea why this could be except possibly resource conflicts. I'll see if I can figure it out, but for now you've been warned.

Kinda curious how many people care if any.

Here's another couple of utils that would be useful to add.
CD-Open, cd-close (msdos)

Here is a (similar?) program (2 actually). I have only one
CD-ROM drive so I don't know how this will work with multiple
drives.

^^^ This is the best way to do it, presently.

Also, regarding viruses/malware/trojans/etc in the files in the archive: if anybody wishes to bring these to my attention, please do.

However:
1. It's better to post the information in this thread, where multiple people can see and potentially validate the report. Most "infections" I've investigated have been false-positives.
2. At the very least, please include: A link to the download on the site, the name of the infected file within the ZIP/RAR/etc if applicable, and the name of the alleged virus.

I have a driver to contribute, I have found the official ESS Solo-1 driver online for Windows 3.11 but unfortunately the package was awful (wrong folders, random autoexec.bat file) and the installer was broken despite coming from the official archived website.

Attached is a .zip file I put together that contains the official ESS Solo driver, but with an older installer exe taken from the ISA ESS AudioDrive and everything restored to the proper locations. This will allow the driver to install if you first load the ESS Solo dos driver. It provides WAVE and MPU support to Windows 3.11.
I have also included the ESS AudioRack that was part of the ESS AudioDrive driver bundle I took the install exe from.

This should allow other ESS Solo-1 owners to more easily use this card on Windows 3.11 as I am not aware of any other working install packages for this card that support 3.11.
The archive.org link can be found here : https://archive.org/details/essolo-311

Hi,

Thank you for the upload and the general idea on how to fix the ESS Solo-1 (ES1938) Windows 3.1x driver, but, sadly, the .EXE files from another driver break MIDI and FM ("The current MIDI Mapper setup refers to a MIDI device that is not installed on the system. Use MIDI Mapper to edit the setup.").

In order to fix the original factory driver for good, you simply have to move 3 of its own files (ESSSETUP.EXE, ESSLANG.US and ESSSOFT.INI) up one folder, and rename the folder itself to "ESSSET".

When using a MIDI daughterboard, make sure AuxB is enabled in AudioRack, and also that your MIDI Mapper configuration points to ESS AudioDrive MIDI Port Output and not ESS AudioDrive MIDI (otherwise you'll only hear ESFM), like this:

I felt like messing around with some other drivers than the recommended Audigy ones for a SB0220, but the download hit for a trojan. Are the uploads run through scans? VirusTotal even? Also is there a reason the site isn't https?

Here's a link to the fileI downloaded, http://vogonsdrivers.com/getfile.php?fileid=809&menustate=0

See Re: VOGONS Driver Library

Replace the http with https and it should work. Keep in mind that there likely isn't a redirect since the site is for old systems.

What AV program and what Trojan ? I scanned the file with Windows Defender with newest update, and Super Anti Spyware on my PC and found nothing then sent it to Virus Total and only one app Vir.IT found a trojan called Trojan.Win32.Click.CQE....
35 other well known AV apps found nothing so it must be a false positive.
https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/bfd7232cf … e2e7b173f593d3a
Note about Defender: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/threats/ … tId=-2147458352
and appears Vir.IT does false positives like here: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/26a644c19 … 958119a0aaff83a

I will rescan on the other pc but think it has nothing in it....nothing found local.

added: Here is the same but as original ISO : https://archive.org/details/creativesoundblas … d_2201ml0000117
according to the disk.id file...

Sorry, I didn't include the details. It was Defender, yesterday evening, Trojan:Win32/Vigorf.A , which is a severe threat level. This is on the linked SB0220.7z

Thanks for the ISO though, I'll check that out instead.

I would update the Defender definitions and try again. Defender sometimes gets a bad update that causes false positives then MS pushes a new definition update that fixes it. Has happened many times. One time they broke it so bad it quarantined Windows System files that prevented Windows from booting.

Agree ! Update the Definitions.edit: I scanned it with Defender and the newest Definitions created 5/18/2024 in Win10 and 5/16/2024 in Win7 Pro and it did not find anything.

Thought I'd test that same file again today, Defender on Win 10 with updates as of today, hits for Backdoor:Win32/Bladabindi!ml , which is a severe threat level. This is on the linked SB0220.7z

“Bladabindi!m” was first identified in 2019. That file was uploaded to vogondrivers in 2015.

Seems likely that thisis a false positive.
