Don't feel too bab about the sound. I had some fun with the sound mixer, speaker settings, EAX effects section missing or simply incomplete here on a few 7000 build installs as well as on newer builds until lately.

AreoX you're going to need the SIW tool since that will dig in deep to pull the exact make and model information you need for the sound as well as the make and model board should I say with ease! That will show what you need to locate all kinds of drivers.

Now what did you saw you didn't have the make and model information?

I used SIW tool and found out info for the soundcard. It has the latest drivers for it as well. Seven gave me this error though (see image)

Oh I remember the fun days when first going to get things going on the 7000 builds! The Vista installer you download from the Creative support site will need a little help from 7's new tool now seen in the right click menu.



The troubleshoot compatibility option will come in very handy at times. Once you right click on the installer for the update you would select that foloowed by checking off the "worked with older version of Windows" option seen on the second screen that follows. On the next after select Vista.

The troubleshooted will then proceed to go through all the motions until you reach the try other method or close troubleshooter choice screen where if all went well you simply close that out and double click on the executable update. You'll also find that old XP programs you never thought would run will often go right this way.

If that's the older Audigy 2 line of SB Live you may run into a few problems with anything newer then Vista drivers. When first seeing the 7 beta become available at the Creative support site those listed the Audigy 4 lineup along with the X-Fi series.

The two options seen at the support site is manually searching or using the auto updater tool to see if that helps you any at Creative Worldwide Support

If you bought one of the newer X-Fi models the 7 betas for both 32bit and 64bit alike are right there including the application. In fact that's what finally saw the speakers settings and EAX effects menu included here.

It's typical to see older model lines dropped anyways when a new version of Windows(not too many since Vista was delayed) or a new line of cards comes out. ATI was a good one for dropping support after so many catalyst verions were seen with the nest omitting one model line supported in the previous.

Creative and other companies tend to due the same thing at some point. I guess that one way to keep the economy going as well as introducing the new and improved ?

Ummmm... I know this is a bit late but...
When I installed W7 it automatically found all the drivers and installed them. I stuck the W7 dvd in the cd drive and 45 minutes later I had W7 installed with all drivers and devices installed.
why'd that not happen here?
