Windows 7: X-Fi Elite Pro remote not working

Help X-Fi elite pro

Hi. I get the same error -001 when I install the Creative /entertainment center. Then it reboots and then I am able to use the sound card with remote properly. One more reboot later, the system becomes very unbstable and crashes BSOD, and no other programs can run either.

I then re-installed everything after a format, except the entertainment center .
I can use the card in 5.1 mode. The guitar connection works.
The remote does not work . The THX settings don't work and volume knob has no effect. Can you help? Is there a WORK AROUND. Can i try running in vista compatibility mode? Any other options/fixes solutions?
The guys at creative support suggested this Creative Worldwide Support

does that work. Any known issues with doing that?
Thanks in advance . Your help is much appreciated. I haven't slept in 3 days trying to get my new pc and sound card to work.

I tried one thing after formatting the PC.
Do not install anything from the DVD. Download the latest version of everything that is on the website.
Install the Drivers first. Install remaining items that are mentioned in the creative update software.
Then lastly install the latest Creative center application, even if it mentions it as being for Vista. Once you do that, the remote works.

Also if possible install Direct X latest before installing anything. I mailed Creative about the I-001 error. Wil paste that in later

Do you face any system instability issues with your sound card?

no i don't, all is working fine exept the remote. i've tryed different version of driver and software also the repack made by daniel_k.
but have you done these steps using 64bit version of seven? because i can't even think to use 32bit version of win..

now i'm going to fry again and follow your procedure, and format, once again :S

ps: when I lastly install the latest Creative entertainment center application, do i have to run the executable in vista compatible mode?

I think running it in Vista compatibility mode is a good idea.
Did you use driver version .._15?
Well the 001 error turns up, but once you reboot the PC it should work okay ....

Did it work for you finally?
