Windows 7: Creative Sound Cards.

I bought recently a new sound card Creative Sound Blaster Z (the boxed one) and went through some troubleshootings uninstall my previous Creative Xi-Fi Xtreme Audio PCI because of generic drivers left from the SB Audigy that came with windows update (39Mb), which i forgot to stop the automated install in WU and now they're stuck in: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\p17.inf_amd64_neutral_a694d28abbbedefa.

I found after some digging internet a site that list all the leftover in the computer after uninstall from "Programs & Features":

Should I Remove It?

Quite handy also to stop process of the P17RunE.dll.

The site does list nearly all the Creative cards and Creative softwares by naming the files leftover.

Unfortunatly it doesn't list the Creative Tech registry keys (HKLM) to delete, neither the place where are the files to delete (system32, sysWOW64, c:\Windows, etc...), so you'll have to search yourself and do it manually before install the new sound card.

Installed today my new Creative Sound Blaster Z, it works like a treat!!

Took me time cleaning previous registry entries & leftovers , but that was worth it!

Easy install in slot PCI-e x2 (black), disabled before Realtek HD in Bios, installed from CD first then updated drivers to last ones.

For those who care about capacitors on that SB Z series, well they're the "Nichicon Gold Caps" for better extended life span. Same as Zx & ZxR.

For anyone with one of these cards the only option you really have (applies to Vista as well) is yet another Daniel_K modified driver set,

SB Live! series Support Pack 2.0 (04/30/2010) - Creative Labs

Filefront mirror - Download SBLive_SupportPack_1_5.rar now superseded

New version - Download SBLive_SupportPack_2_0.exe

See post #10 for how to install these drivers manually.
Updated link for #2.
Any possible way to get these sound blaster live cards to play 5.1 sound as in having the center-woofer, R and L rear mini jacks passing the appropriate sounds?

For example all they do is play front stereo on known good 5.1 sound files.
In the configuration speaker setup, they also only play the front speakers.
So this modded driver is only good for stereo sound.
