    Robert, try ed to install 3.55 after uninstalling 3.50, defrag, and removing reg entry's with DriveSweep 3.1 in safe mode. At first everything seamed to be ok with the exceptions Audio control panel, Speaker tab, I would click on the box for optimize output for headphones would change the speaker config from 2/2.1 to 5.1, after about 3 seconds the check mark would show up in the box. But as stated the speaker config would show 5.1 and not 2/2.1.

    The only way to change this was to go into Volume Panel, then Speaker setup console click on Optimize speaker output for headphones. Further investigation show my sound card as High Def and not X-FI card in
    Device manager.

    My sound was like to cats with their tails tied together thrown over a clothes line. I did a complete reinstall of win 7 and try ed to install 3.55 with the same results. I finally reinstalled 3.50 with out a problem.

    At no time did I receive an error message installing 3.55.

    That odd you can't installed it? Please make sure you disable your HDMI video card audio and your on board audio.

    On board is disabled, I also disabled the HD, Im sorry I didn't mention this in my last post. Ive been down this road be for with this Sound Card using the Creative drivers. The last time I had so many problems with SB card was with my old SB 16. Of which the problem was I had to load the SB drivers first then Logitech mouse drivers under Win 95

    No, I use x86 version, and x64 version doesn't show my card because I have no ct_oal in system32 folder.
    I believe that this is the problem in OpenAL installer, since this file is part of OpenAL

    ((only OpenAL32.dll is the part of the OpenAL installer.
    if you have installed the newest OpenAL, there must be a 64-bit version in the \windows\System32 dir; name: OpenAL32.dll; size: 123,480 bytes
    and there must be a 32-bit version in the \windows\SysWow64 dir; name: OpenAL32.dll; size: 109,144 bytes

    sorry for these 32/64-bit things again :D

    ct_oal.dll belongs to the X-Fi driver enterily. after a successful installation there must be a 64-bit ct_oal.dll in the \windows\System32 dir; name: ct_oal.dll; size: 182,272 bytes
    and there must be a 32-bit ct_oal.dll in the \windows\SysWow64 dir; name: ct_oal.dll; size: 193,024 bytes

    if someone places a wrong ct_oal.dll to a certain directory (system32 for 64 bit apps; syswow64 for 32-bit apps) that dll simply won't be loaded by the application (a game eg.) and the hardware device (SB X-Fi Audio [0001]) won't be shown and won't work.

    i just mention it because some people sucked a lot of with these including me, and even total commander is unable to copy dlls to the right place. always use exlorer
    ))

    I've never seen bsods on 64-bit OS but isn't there any debug info for ctaud2k.sys at bsod??

    Robert: audio creation mode seems to sound more detailed, again :D

    I get bsod only with games based on Unreal Engines >=2.0 with enabled native opeanAL+EAX

    If you need I can upload the minidump file

    That minidump file would be useful only to Robert I think.
    You can upload it, i have some assembly knowledge i can try it, however i strongly doubt i can fix it.
    Are there any 'short' or small demo which uses that Unreal Engine? just to check that BSOD myself?

    Minidump File 1.dmp gratis downloaden vanaf Uploading.com
    I play red orchestra ostfront 41-45 and I can send you invite via steam

    To use native OpenAL, set audio settings to "H/W 3D + EAX" and make sure "System Driver" is NOT checked.

    maybe we can write a letter to the Creative that had they given us the tools to fix the driver?

    Robert quick note Ref not being able to get 3.55 to install right. Action center report that emu.inf wouldn't install. Really didn't look at the report when I sent if off to MS. So Im thinking it was a bad down load. So I'll down load it again and give it a try tomarrow.

    Shurikits: wait for Robert to do something with that minidump, i can't do it for you.
    Red Orch. doesn't work on winxp 64-bit :S

    you can try to switch to audio creation mode, that will disable eax 4-5

    I strongly doubt. They even can't answer to a simple question, and they haven't released new base drivers since 2.17.0008
    (There are several bugs, recording problems in xp64 and simultaneous mono source playback errors etc..)

    We can try it ofcourse :) i will take part in the development if that attempt will be a success :D

    I confirm that this driver set has issue with ct_oal.dll - installer installs x64 version of dll to sysWOW64 (x86) folder, and it doesn't copy x86 version of ct_oal.dll to the system

    Creative does not answer me anymore emails ,
    creative equalizer switches automatically to normal mode ,
    I can not audio editing in this way , in ENTERTAINMENT-MODUS
    it's not a matter of drivers, it's a bug in the software, for many years
    the Graphic Equalizer it must remain in that mode, for edting works
    so for all soundcards of creative, you a need a sound card, for audio editing works do not buy Creative sound card.
    is maybe only good for game's, but no for sound editing
    I says the software is not good , to creative they Are now angry

    Creative X-FI Elite Pro and X-Fi Titanium HD,
    I have the problem solved,
    I have both, in the trash, throws, I use now two times a Asus Xonar Essence STX

    Re: New Pax Driver and Suite Discus Thread

    Hi Mr McClelland. I have just installed your new pax driver on my computer both xp and windows 7 (64) the sound is really amazing but there is a problem about speaker. I can't get the sound from rear speakers. Just left front, right front and center is working. When I test rear speakers I get sound from front speakers. What should I do? If you help me, I would be grateful.
