Windows 7: Asus Xonar D2X

16 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 BETA
Asus Xonar D2X

I have this sound card and I found that everytime I booted hsmgr.exe or hsmgr64.exe would pop up a warning window asking me if the file was safe to run.

There are two files needed for the Asus control center to work.

On each pop up show more info to find the path of each process.
Go to the process and go to the properties of the file. You will need to "unblock" the program.

In my case I had a process in both "syswow64" and "system" folders.

This stops that annoying popup.
(telling the computer to always allow the process to run doesn't work, it seems to forget on a restart)

Just thought I should share this info and in return someone tell me why my sound doesnt output more than stereo through optical out.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

I have that sound card and had the same problem but that was easy to fix. The other problem is that the recording functions don't show up at all in the Asus Xonar console.

Hi there, Just got this soundcard for my desktop but not installed yet. I am installing it on a Win7 RC (x64) machine. Which driver should I use? Link please... Anyone tried all the apps that comes with it? Do they all work on the x64 or should I just skipém for now? Thanks
