To all Auzentech x-fi forte 7.1 owners, regarding driver installation

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I wanna get as prepared as possible, for when my "Auzentech x-fi forte 7.1" arrives, som I'm here to ask you guys that already has this soundcard, for help.


I downloaded the driver from auzenetch.com and saved it to my hdd. To my big surprise, there are TONS of different setup files you can run. Which really confusses me alot.

All I need, is this here:

-The driver itself
-Audio control panel
-Console launcher
-ALchemy


So can you guys guide me to those things? I have taken two screenshots here, for a little help to guideness. But I really hope this can be sorted out.

Here are two screenshots, just in case, you cant remember itself, from when you installed.

1st screenshot:

2nd screenshot (When I open the "audio" folder)

Go to the Audio > Setup directory and launch setup from there. There should be a Setup.exe in that directory I believe.

Yes, just use the custom installation options when you launch the setup.

Thank you.

By looking at my 2nd screenshot in my post #1, why did they include so many thigns to install? How much did you guys install? And are some higly recommended to install?

EDIT:

I was just wondering by "only" installing this here

-The driver itself
-Audio control panel
-Console launcher
-ALchemy

Will I be missing some other neat stuff, from the other things that can be installed? Those files, I mentioned, are what I'm used to from my creative x-fi. And it works quite good, But Auzentech gives more options to install.

Actually, that setup file I told you about can install everything that is in that package. I personally just install all of the features, though I am sure that I do not use some of them. smile.gif

Also, not that I am fishing for REP, but when you get help on this forum it is customary to give REP to the person that has helped you solve your problem smile.gif

By the way, here is my method, for removing all old creative content for my pc. Is my method optimal?

Here is how I would do it:
-Remove all "creative" content in "add or remove programs".

-Then remove any remaining "creative" content in (C:) folder.

-Then open task manager, and uncheck any activated files, that have anything to do with creative.

-Open drivercleanerpro (since I paid for it, so I get updates) and select "creative audio" and hit the delete button.

Now restart pc for the very first time. Or shut it down to install new soundcard. Is my mentioned method, correct?

Sounds correct. To be the safest you want to clean up any old drivers that you may have (which you seem to do above), restart, then install updated drivers. I personally do not go to that extent (I tend to just install over of the old driver), but your method is probably better.

Just got my auzenetch forte 7.1

I removed the old creative driver/software. And then installed auzentech driver/software. But the auzentech, is not being detected by my windows. I installed everything, but its not detected.

I didnt used the cd. I just downloaded the latest driver from auzenetch website.

EDIT: I got it detected now. So no worries
