Sonar 4 Producer Edition Vista drivers

Hi, please help.
I need the Vista Dirver(s) for my Sonar 4 Producer Edition (Cakewalk) program. I have this older version which I am quite familiar with and do not want to upgrade at this stage. However, I need the Vista driver(s) for this software as I now work on the latest Vista platform.
Where would I be able to find these driver(s)?
I will be very glad I you could help me.
Kind regards.

Stuttering during audio playback in Sonar

The stuttering is caused by excessive CPU usage, in other words: you have too little CPU power to play the file with the inserted synth smoothly. You could try inserting a different synth or play with the rendering-options of the synth (like disabling aliasing, etc.) or increase the audio buffer size (under audio options ?), but the only longterm solution is upgrading to a much faster computer.

Even when you find some tweak which lets you play the file (just) smoothly, adding another effect or synth is likely to cause it to stutter again, since your computer doesn't meet the official (!) minimal requirements for running Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is at least a Pentium 4 1.3GHz computer (and you have a 1.0GHz computer).

I would recommend upgrading your computer to something which at least meets the "recommend requirements" of Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is a Pentium 4 2.8GHz or newer (like any Intel Core 2 system), when you're serious about composing music.
