Windows 7: Creative XFI Xtreme problem

Also if I go into Program Files (X86) there is a Creative folder there and it contains all the features necessary like Alchemy, Console Launcher, etc.


And if I go to Device Manager I dont see sound but I do see something that wasn't there before, well I dont't think it was there before.

Other Devices (and it has ? on it)
Unknown Device (and it has ! on it)

What does it show in Device Manager? Is it showing the name of the card, or is it listed as "unknown multimedia device" under Other?

In device status it says

The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.

Leave everything as is at the moment and follow this,

Driver Install - Device Manager

when you get to step 5 point it to,

P17X_SupportPack_2_7\Drivers\vista

The driver installed and I have sound again.

Unfortunately my original problem did not get fixed. The Audio Console still gives the message "The current audio device is not supported by the application".

And in Sound---Playback---SoundBlaster I still cannot use Configure your Audio Settings, I get the same message

Well we tried and I can't thank you enough for your time and your excellent step by step instruction that even me could follow. I was so sure it was going to work!

Maybe all there is left to do is get a different soundcard that is more compatible with Windows 7. Any suggestions?

Just thought of something...I never did part 2 where it shows to update the XP Drivers to Window 7... Am I supposed to do that also?

I didn't do it because I figured it would just bring me back to my original Version Driver 1.4.90

No, and all things considering should have never had XP drivers installed in the first place as there has been Windows 7 drivers for it since 7 came out.

One more thing to try, go here,

Uninstalling Sound Blaster Drivers and Applications

then click on "PCI Sound Blaster Cards" and start with Step 2. When you get to #6 don't use the disk, instead open the extracted folder, go to the Drivers folder and run the setup.exe there. When the utility comes up set it as shown, then move on to Step 3.
