Email Digital Blue and they will ask for your email address and shipping address. Looks like they're starting to send out the Vista version on cd via the mail, then make it available online for download later. Best of luck!

My QX3 worked wonderfully on my XP system, but I can't load the drivers/installation files on a Vista system.


Sorry, Intel stopped making these years ago. They DID post updated drivers, but long before Vista arrived. Go to the Intel web site, your only other hope is to find a blog of Intel QX3 users, maybe some gearhead updated the driver pro bono.
