Windows 7 - 驱动程序上的芭蕾舞

1/18/2009来源:Windows 7教程人气:3573

在开发Windows 7时,微软就在试图解决与Vista的兼容性问题。这样一来。为了保证设备都能正常使用,Windows 7必须支持所有Vista认证的驱动以确保通过Vista兼容性认证的设备向Windows 7无缝过渡。

Grant George,Windows体验部门的VP测试者透露称微软是将Vista下的驱动兼容问题作为WIndows 7的首选目标的。

“在安装Windows 7时,安装包就会自动为设备安装驱动程序,这些程序至少能够确保设备的基本功能。这些驱动包括大容量存储系统、网卡、输入设备和显示驱动。而当系统安装完毕后,如果需要的话,用户也可以通过自动更新获取其他更多驱动。”

不过,微软也指出并非所有设备的驱动都会通过自动更新提供。比如,部分移动版显卡驱动。在这种情况下,用户可能需要到硬件设备厂商官方网站上的制定页面寻找和下载驱动。不过一旦这些驱动确定能够在Windows 7下完美运行,微软就会在自动更新内提供。

小编:目前,从之家会员的反映看来,Windows 7在驱动方面基本不存在多大问题,微软在这方面,还是下了不少苦功的。而随着时间的推移,相信仅存的一些问题也会得到解决。

While building Windows 7, Microsoft is attempting to resolve scenarios that managed to successfully handicap Windows Vista in terms of compatibility. In this context, in order not to break devices that currently work with its PRecursor, Windows 7 will come to the table, from the get-go, with support for all Vista-certified drivers. Compatibility with devices designed for Vista ensures that users will have a seamless upgrade/migration experience. Grant George, the VP of Test for the Windows Experience, revealed that Microsoft had full compatibility with Vista-certified drivers for Windows 7 as a primary goal.

“Drivers for basic functionality are in-box (by in-box we mean available as part of the installation of Windows). This includes drivers for mainstream storage, network, input, and display devices, so the OS can be installed and user can get online where, if needed, additional drivers can be acquired from Windows Update. Drivers update and/or install with minimal end user effort. When drivers are upgraded, there aren’t problems with the new drivers. Drivers are reliable,” George explained.
