Windows 7: Problem with Sound Blaster! Live 5.1 on Windows 7 x86

Problem with Sound Blaster! Live 5.1 on Windows 7 x86

Hi dudes

Could anyone help me to find the correct driver for my soundcard?, it is a Creative SB Live! 5.1

It was working fine on WinXP, but since I changed the OS to W7 its sounds is terrible.

I have tried to install many of those mod drivers , but everytime the following error message appears:
"Setup is unable to detect a supported product on your system. Please ensure that your product is properly installed before running this setup program. Setup will exit".

All times I am trying to do it:|

Don't know what do to with it...

An indication of the correct and working driver would help me a lot.

Thanks. :]

(Someone please help?)

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Does anyone know of any driver for Windows 7 64bit, except the KX driver ? The KX driver works just fine for music playback but in games there are so many issues... and for every game i have to tamper with the mixer, speaker setup, etc, it's very frustrating... The official Creative Vista 64bit driver sadly doesn't work for Win 7, at least for me it generates BSOD crash on bootup I'd appreciate any suggestions.
And for pumaSSdaniel, is there any option for your card to swap front/rear channels? It's common practice for these cards since the rear outputs have way better signal/noise ratio. Hope this helps :)
