Model: Acer Aspire 4745 , 4745G
Compatibility: Windows XP, Windows XP x86 and x64
Last update: June 8 2013 - fixed all broken link.
For Compaq model which use dual graphic mode, i manage to install the driver by update windows XP after patch it with SP 2 (service pack 2). So, I assume that you need SP2 before installing the driver.
It is strongly recommended to install .neframework 2.0 and windows installer 3.1 from the Microsoft website.
