Because they are the same crap release from october 2009!
To solve the problem deactivate Windows Auto-Update, go to Device Manager and uninstall the Sound Blaster drivers (SB24 Live!). Then get the CD with the old drivers from Creative and install them manually, meaning that you have to choose manually when asked to instal, after that you have to hit the have disk button and then browse from the CD an get the driver itself. Windows will recognise them after a short while of thinking. After that you can go to setup.exe from the CD and install the rest of the packages, but only after installing the drive first! otherwise it will generate an error..

Good luck!

p.s. you may experience some windows crashes with blue screen at first, but don't worry because it will fix itself, also remembrer when you update windows, always uncheck the drivers for the sound card!

I just uninstalled the new drivers for Windows 7, OPENED the original creative cd and hit setup.exe. Then all instelled like on XP (Media source bla bla bla).
About the blue screen: it does that when I try to enter the SB microphone but I switched the mic to the integrated sound card (Realteck.....) If you installed the drivers and software successfully then you can activate the bass redirection from the control panel like you would do on XP

I tried your solution, but I wasn't successful. I installed the old driver for XP which is on the CD, then I ran setup.exe from CD. Everthing seemed fine, but when I tried to open creative sound manager (or whatever it's called) I got an error message saying something like "no supported sound card found". It really starts to piss me off

it's ok

Try opening the Creative Sorround Mixer, it should be ok. I get an error when i want to open the old volume controller from creative, now I use the volume from Windows 7.

Anyway, when opening the mixer You can configure the sound card and it should work just fine!

p.s. look in device manager to see if the driver is called: Sound Blaster Live! -24 bit
If it is somethin like SB-24 Live.. then it's the new driver so you have to uninstall it and try again.

Hi,

I have the old driver installed (driver info: publisher: creative technology ltd., date: 10.6.2004) however I received during the installation error message "A service installation section in this INF is invalid". And I still can't open any creative modules (surround mixer, speaker settings,...). I really dont know what else to try

Try uninstalling the drivers again, then install them manually from the CD, and then hit setup.exe .. I don't know what else to tell you, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate and I struggled a lot to make it worked, but eventually the setup.exe worked..

So, all I can say is try again, maybe you are missing something..

I tried it like hundred times, installing uninstalling drivers all over again and always the same error... You didn't received any error messages while you were installing the driver itself?

As I remember windows didn't install the old driver when I clicked the Browse for driver.. it did not recognize the driver at all. Only when i clicked the Pick the driver manually (have disk) the system installed it. Then I ran the setup.exe from the cd without any errors.

So the ideea is that i never received errors because windows never recognized the driver, and when it did, it worked without problems.
