Windows 7: Asus SupremeFX X-FI

Windows 7 (Build 7068)
 
 

Update: The Sound Blaster driver that was offical for W7 is different than the one in the Maximus II Formula page. the SB app will not work with the new audio driver unless you update it with the M-II-F app. The app version is the same for some reason...but it obviously is not. Perhaps that is the same for your R-II board? Look the same but not!

There is a more recent version here :
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mis...r_Asus_R14.zip

Some files are 4-5 months newer than in SB_XFi_V10_XPVistaWin7.zip
For example, ALchemy goes from v1.25.02 to v1.26.04, SB Properties goes from v1.02.00 to v1.02.03
A plugin for Media Center seems to have been added.

Total compressed size is smaller though, because the AddOn folder with a 30MB AddOn.exe is not included.

Haven't tried it yet.

Well, turns out it doesn't support the chip on my Rampage II Gene.
Maybe a mix of both the new and old packages could produce some positive results, but I don't have time to try it out

Yep did the same thing as ZoZo2 tried. Also the same error message. I think it's a mix of a old & new drivers. So you need a clean Windows 7 installation I guess.
Or the driver still doesn't fit good together with your/me soundcard & Windows 7.

PS.
I got a ASUS Rampage II Exterme MB.

Well guys you did not get the point of what i posted, i said that i tried the latest drivers/utilities for W7 but when i try to click on speakers from the entertainment mode it crashes and I get the error "The program has stopped working". I managed to get the sb x-fi utility provided with the cd working except that i have no sound from my subwoofer. What should I do?

Guys, the Gene version board is a different sound card!!!!! It is a VIA, not a SoundMax, as is the Maximus III versions. Eddy, sounds like you have a corrupt registry or perhaps installation of windows 7? Maybe you should do a full format of the drive (as a quick on only deletes the index meaning you overwrite data that you can not see). That way it clears up any issues involving bad sectors or corrupt data. When TuneUp Utilities makes their program W7 ready, you could always uninstall everything sound related, run the 1-click cleaner, then after that, run Windows 7 Manager (even the demo) and clean your registry again. Then re-install the sound card, reboot, then the creative app. As for the version ZoZo2 posted, it is probably a beta build for a future release.
