Latest driver download listed above - the general procedure for updating sound drivers is to uninstall the old driver firstly, reboot, then install the new driver - driver version listed : 1.04.0090

If that doesnt work or you already have that driver you could enable your onboard audio and download the driver for it here :
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS P7H55-M LX

Or search using the manual search for a vista 32 bit driver and try this if it doesnt install normally, and produces an error (we were doing this all the time with beta versions of Windows 7 with a high sucess) :

To install a driver/program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

You mean in the audio file from asus - dont worry you got it correct - they are probably for different operating systems or whatever, irrelevant in any case, you're up and running .
