Thanks. AVIVO is also listed as being 9.10, but the link on the download page (after the survey bit) is to the 9.9 version.
That happened with the last release as well, it took a week for AVIVO link to update to the current version.

That happened with the last release as well, it took a week for AVIVO link to update to the current version.

Luckily there's no need to wait that long this time, as it seems the link has now been updated :mrgreen:
It's rather depressing that 58xx WHQL support is listed as a ‘feature’ - it should have been available on release of the cards..
