Need help installing old sound blaster live onto windows 7

I am having a horrible time trying to figure out how to install drivers for this card. I know it ancient, but for right now this is what I have. I have spent a ton on trying to get this computer up and running in the last week and I would like to "make due" with this sound card for now if possible. I saw in another thread that it is possible to get this one working but Im not sure how to. If anyone can help to get me through this, Id appreciate it.

I also have a Ess Allegro-1 card but it also says it not compatible with Windows 7, so Im at a loss

If you have a Creative Soundbalster Live 24 bit, there is a driver on the Creative web site

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

Was running a CT-4760 for ages w/Win7 (64) I had to resort to the Kx Audio Driver package.
It took a while to get it running properly, as the U.I. is pretty confusing. But it worked great for me for several months.
I then came across Ghost Recon Online (Now, Ghost Recon Phantoms) public beta, and for the life of me couldn't get the in-game comm's working properly. I tried soooo many different things (Even resorting to on-board Audio)and finally gave up and bought another card. (That actually turned out to be a customer service nightmare unto itself)
Guess what... Same exact problems. ARGHHHH!!!
Still cursing UBI for releasing an enormously bug laden beta.
Anyways, the Kx drivers should work for you.
