Windows 7: Sound Blaster live

Sound Blaster live

Please help. I have installed Win 7, but when I want to install Sound Blaster live software, it says that no sound card is installed. I installed the kx software and the sound works, but I cannot use my midi keyboard and somehow my micr0phone will not work in Skype. I would realy like my soundblaster card to work. It all works perfectly in XP

Hello Pieterg Welcome to the Se7en Forums!

The first thing to look over now is under "sound, video, and game controllers" in the Device Manager to see if there any yellow marked items found there. The yellow marked items of SB WDM and any other Creative item would be found there.

Window has detected the card in order for sound to be heard while the application may need to be configured especially the sound mixer in the Control Panel under sound for Skype. As you will see in the image here you simply right click on the item found in Sound to configure each or set which one will be the default.

The recording tab is where to go for any microphones to be used like one on a web cam.
