Windows 7: Sound Blaster Audigy SE will not install correctly

Srilina have you tried to install the driver manually? Post #10 here,

Creative Sound Cards.

has a link on how to do that, as well as where to point the update wizard.

I also saw your posts on the Creative forums and had a look at the INF for the P17X Support Pack and your card is already in it,

; SB Audigy
so there is something else stopping it from installing. Before trying the manual install, it would be a good idea to uninstall everything you can find relating to Creative from programs and features, as well as use the uninstall driver option for the card (assuming it is showing) in Device Manager.

@ thefabe, the KX drivers are OK if you have a real Audigy (any Audigy that isn't the SE/DE/LS/Value variant), but they won't work with the OP's Audigy SE.

Stormy - thanks so much for the link! I tried installing it manually but was unable to point specifically to P17.INF - trying to install from the driver subfolder also failed (I uninstalled all Creative programs, and deleted as many system files under Windows related to the drivers as possible beforehand - I couldn't delete corresponding files under system32\driver, or several of the dlls)

Is this a case where I should just get a new soundcard...? Or perhaps is the problem with Windows trying to automatically install drivers for me?

If it is of further use, I'll occasionally get "Microsoft Trusted Audio Drivers" under sound, video etc in DM (although it also isn't working) and if I uninstall both that and SB Audigy, Windows will occasionally install a similarly faulty "multimedia" driver - under an "unknown multimedia" heading.
