Windows 7: Changing default Sound Device

Changing default Sound Device

Is there any possibility of changing the sound device programatically in Windows 7?
Or atleast to make the device as the default sound device during installation?
In Vista, I could use SetupPreferredAudioDevice key in INF file to make it as default at the time of installation, but I could see that this key is no more valid in Windows 7. Is there any alternative for this?

There may be a better way, but my system has an Audigy card, as well as Realtek onboard sound, and I just disabled onboard sound in the Device Manager and the Audigy took over automatically.
