    There is an optional update (2.5 mo) for soundblaster in windows update with 10 other security updates, she is dated from today and here the title: Creative audio device update released in November,2014... but on creative's website the last release is in january 2014.

    Anyone know what she does and and if she can be installed on Pax drivers ?

    I have the same notification in Windows Update. I have the PAX_SBZ_CD_L13_1_00_24_2014_V1.25 Installed, however Today I was doing Windows updates and chose to install averything BUT the entry. Until further instruction, I won't be installing it.

    I've done some investigating and it seems that people without the PAX driver installed are indeed recieving the update through Windows Update as well.

    A user on overclock.net with stock Jan 22 Creative drivers from the website installed the update and apparently it is dated 11/17/2014, driver version 6.0.102.32.

    However, very little has been stated about what changed in the driver, but they begin talking about it in Page 292 of this thread:
    http://www.overclock.net/t/1337761/official-creative-sound-blaster-z-zx-zxr-series-club

    I'd love if this new revision could be explained in more detail, and possibly gone over with enhancements by whoever develops the PAX drivers. I quite enjoy them.

    Any way we can download a Windows Update package and analyze it's contents?

    Hope the information I provided helped, I'm off to search for the standalone update so I can post it here for you guys ^^

    Hello,
    I have the official drivers installed (SBZxR_CD_LD_1_00_24.exe), I installed "Creative audio device update released in November, 2014" from windows update.
    this update has updated all 3 drivers (sound blaster audio controller, sound blaster zxr and sound blaster zxr DBPro) to version 6.0.102.32.
    it seems that everything is working, counter strike for now has not given me problems (for now).
    (sorry for my english)
    bye

    UPDATE: do not solve the crash in counter strike source . . . .

    Ok, now Creative has released the full package on his website: SBZ_CD_L13_1_00_28.exe
    The only change : WHQL Certified, 11 months for only the certification, Creative :confused:

    Robert, if you read this post I think we will soon have a new driver, right? :p ;)

    P.S.: I have installed the update on Pax driver and no problem for me too.

    Creative has not released the complete package for ZxR, only for Z and Zx :confused:
    Is there any fix for counter strike source?
