    Thanks, wouldn't have seen it without this post. Downloading now.

    I wish there was a complete tool for removing audio drivers like DDU for GPU Drivers.

    I want to do a complete clean installation.

    Guys,

    No need to wait for the ZxR driver it's the SAME as Z/Zx. Creative just needs to repackage the .pdf manual for the ZxR and create new DISK.ID's and installer, but it seems they're way too lazy. Everything else is the same for all three Z-Series cards.

    So, as usual, the Z/Zx driver package is byte for byte the same as the ZxR one, except for the .pdf manual, setup files and driver folder (also a couple of extra folders and irrelevant files if we want to be precise).

    You can extract the driver package .exe file with WinRAR and update the ZxR driver now via Device Manager in Windows, it's located here:

    ..\SBZ_CD_L13_1_01_08\program files\Creative\Sound Blaster Z-Series\Program\Driver

    I just did it, you need to update 2 "devices":
    - Sound Blaster Audio Controller
    - Sound Blaster ZxR

    ALL the software is the same as included in the previous driver package, they didn't update anything, so no need to reinstall all that stuff.

    Cheers,
    EOG
