Sorry for Delay I get those tomorrow I was busy over the weekend
Hey guys, I am new here but have to admit: this modding is an awesome job. I love custom files which just work so good.
I only have the old Audigy 1 and I wonder if I have any use from all the XFI/HQ/Audigy 4 folders of that suite. There are lots of interesting folders in there, I just wonder if I could use some of it...
1. Do you need the original drivers to use this?
2. Does it have the original sound font support from the audigy drivers?
I don't know on that one yet.
Well, i tried to use them, but it keeps giving me the "CODE (37) Windows cannot initialize this device", I've been at it for a week straight now trying to get the audigy 1 drivers working in xp. They work fine with the kx drivers, but somehow not with the creative drivers.
I had to install the drivers manually (audigy 0090) on xp, and now i ok!
I olso have win 7 and after installation works only 3 front speakers, I can turn 5.1 but plays only 3. Eax console does't work at all, there were errors during installation (sometihng like "cannot register module"). I know they are not for win 7 but it would be great if they work on win 7 too.
Thank you Robert for the drivers.
Sorry for my english
I ran "\Setup.exe": it installed drivers and asked for a reboot.
During and after reboot, there were no special post-boot actions (no driver installation achievements or setup installer running).
I then ran "\Audigy4\Audio\Setup\setup.exe": it asked which components I wanted, installed them and they showed up in "C:\Program Files\Creative" and" Start Menu\Programs\Creative".
I do have an "SB Audigy 4 (WDM)" audio device in the Windows Device Manager, but it doesn't seems to work : no Windows sound, Winamp won't run, etc.
If I try to run any tool such as the EAX Console or Surround Mixer I get the followings error messages (in French because my Windows is in French):
Which could be translated into:
"Creative Diagnostics" tool won't find my sound card either.
What did I missed
You mut install the drivers manualy, I had the same problem.
So the steps are :
1. "\Setup.exe" (to install drivers once)
3. "\Audigy4\Audio\Setup\setup.exe" (to install tools and consoles)
4. Re-run "\Setup.exe" to reinstall drivers
Because it seems there is a lot of way to install drivers manually :
a. Re-run "\Setup.exe"
b. Windows Device Manager > right-click on device > "Update drivers" > "Choose from list or place" > Browse to "\Drivers\wdm"
c. Run "\Drivers\Setup.exe"
I also noticed I had two unknown devices on High Definition Audio bus.
Someone could confirm there should be only one device in the "Windows Device Manager" named "Creative SB Audigy 4 (WDM)" while using "Pax Audigy Software Suite Spring Edition 2009" for an Audigy 4 Pro?
Did you try installed official drivers? You my need do that first before installing mine.
No I haven't installed the official drivers (in fact I did it multiple times, but I ran Driver Cleaner before trying the 2009 Suite).
So I uninstall everything (with Windows Add/Remove programs, Windows Device Manager and DriverCleaner), install the official "Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2.18.0010 (2009-03-23)" drivers (file "SBAX_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0010.exe"), run "\Setup.exe" (from PAX 2009 Suite), reboot, run "\Audigy4\Audio\Setup\setup.exe" (from PAX 2009 Suite), and I should be fine?
I'm gonna try right now :w00t:
I just hope the "\Setup.exe" (from PAX 2009 Suite) won't detect previous drivers (the official ones) and ask to remove them before continuing :dead:
Ya thats fine I know it's a pain but if you have clean system you do need offical drivers first I think if not go ahead installed my pax audigy 6.50 set then installed the tools. I might be off while going installed windows 7 build 7100 soon
Thanks a lot: it's now fixed (sound+tools working).
As advised I installed (by running "\setup.exe") the official 2.18.0010 (2009-03-23) drivers (SBAX_PCDRV_LB_2_18_0010.exe) after having installed the Suite Spring Edition 2009 drivers ("\Setup.exe") + tools ("\Audigy4\Audio\Setup\setup.exe").
Thanks again (for BOTH you work on drivers AND for your fast and reliable support)
why is nowhere a step to step tutorial ?
I have Vista Ultimate & an Audigy 2 ZS (E880)
1. I install the 2.18.0010 Driver and reboot
2. I install the Pax 2009 Driver and reboot
3. I install the Tools, no reboot ,i have sound but the tools doesn´t work.
Can i install all audigy 4 tools inclusive the Console again?
Please Post a step to step tutorial, i think many people would thank you.
XtAbit, Have you read my post (the one just before yours)?
My steps (for an Audigy 4 Pro on Windows XP Pro SP3):
1. I install the Pax 2009 Driver and reboot (milestone: sound is working)
2. I install the Tools, no reboot (milestone: sound is still working, but tools aren't)
3. I install the 2.18.0010 Driver and reboot (milestone: both sound and tools are working)
You too used the driver cleaner on the audigy software? Don't worry On Friday I posted step by step how installed drivers right way
hmm i would use the pax and not the official driver.
hi Robert McClelland!!! As always your job is wonderful!!!
I've tested your latest suite on my Notebook Dell M6300 with Adapter Express ---> PCMCIA ---> Audigy 2 zs Notebook.
Everything is fine on Windows XP 32 bit
For test purpose only I've tried them also on:
Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
Windows 7 Ultimate RC Build 7100 32Bit
Windows 7 Ultimate RC Build 7100 64Bit
Everything is fine only EAX Console doesn't start.... audio card not find.
But I can use Eax Console that comes with original driver.
Step to install them correctly is:
1) Original latest creative driver.
2) Driver from your package.
3) Tools from your package.
Thanks you a lot. Robert Number 1.
Driver first then tools
