    Hello!

    This is my first post here after lurking around for a few years, enjoying the fine drivers made by Robert (thanks a lot for all your hard work!).
    Recently I've switched to Windows 10 and I've realized that the PAX drivers aren't yet ready for it, so I had to find a workaround which gave me at least some of the functionality that I've wanted.

    I personally own the X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Pro and it's been a really great card, even though I still haven't seen any games that take advantage of its embedded memory.

    Anyways, let's skip to the subject: it seems that Creative has finally released some drivers for Windows 10, but unfortunately they were lacking the Console Launcher and the Volume Panel - two things that are essential to me, so I've decided to do a little digging around and I'd like to share my results so that I can help you guys.

    I've made an archive for anyone that has my model with all the needed packages here or here.
    Just follow the instructions in the SFX window and you're good to go!

    For anyone else with a different model, you'll find your drivers here or here (cached copy with the links for all the models - in case you know just your SBXXXX code and not the full name of the card).
    The Console Launcher is available here and the Volume Panel is available here (the blue download button is just right next to the file size).
    For the Volume Panel you need to open the .exe with WinRAR and extract it somewhere and then install from subfolder VolPanel.

    It took me a few hours to find all these so if you'd like to buy me a beer, you can make a donation here.

    Thank you very much, enjoy your drivers!

    For me the daniel k package works best (for out-of-the-box win 10 fresh install), I already tried to contact him to update it without luck. The only problem is that after installation + restart you get an registry warning. I only had the wish to fix that + latest driver and it would be perfect (for me).

    Can you please report what exactly is included in your package? DTS yes or no?
    Which driver version and does it work out-of-the-box on win x64 after afresh installation of Win?


    Thanks.

    Contents:
    01 XFTI_PCDRV_L11_2_40_0015
    Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Series Software Pack for Windows 10 - 6.0.240.15 - 12/19/2015

    02 CSL_PCAPPBETA_LB_2_61_49
    Creative Console Launcher 2.61.49 Beta

    03 CSL_PCAPP_LB_2_60_29
    Creative Console Launcher v2.60.29 - for the Volume Panel

    The drivers work without any issue and as long as you follow the instructions in the archive to install the packages one after the other, you'll have the most complete suite that you can have at the moment, without errors of any kind.
    Also, in the Creative Audio Control Panel I do have DTS available.

    Enjoy! :)

    Uninstall everything that you've previously installed and then follow my instructions, it should work without an issue.
    Please note that from package 03 you have to install just the Volume Panel from the subfolder VolPanel in order to get the tray icon.

    That didn't happen to me, but I'm using a retail build.
    The driver was recently updated via Microsoft Update, but all I had to do was to reinstall packages 02 and 03 and now it's working perfectly fine, again.

    Preview builds are often buggy, so I don't know about those..

    On my system, all the packages are still working and I'm using the Anniversary update with all the newest updates, on the retail channel.
    As I've mentioned in my previous post, all I've had to do was to reinstall packages 02 and 03 and I haven't encountered any issues.

    Try to uninstall absolutely everything that you have installed right now and then reinstall my packages in the suggested order.
    Please note that from package 03 you have to install just the Volume Panel from the subfolder VolPanel in order to get the tray icon.

    The first post has been updated with a working link and also a mirror.

    This is what you should get:
    File: X-FI Titanium Fatal1ty Pro W10.exe
    File size: 135 MB (141,427,349 bytes)
    MD5 checksum: D29F098CF591137EF29F67A2BC511E7D
    SHA1 checksum: 6FCC853984014463756CDC42065C6A196AF3E9C0

    Just make sure that your browser isn't blocking it because it's an executable (SFX WinRAR 5 archive) and it should run without any issues.

    Please let me know if there are more issues and please donate if you've found my package helpful. Thanks!

    Someone suggested that you should put your PC to sleep with the settings that you want saved and then resume it and they'll survive the following restart.
    Are you using an Insider Preview build? Because those are known to have issues.
    On my retail W10, the pack is still working correctly. I just had to reinstall the Console and the Panel after a Windows Update.

    Happy hoildays and a special thanks for the kind person (J. Blanco) that sent me a donation! :)
