Default SoundBlaster-Live-Value,working!!!!!

I used the xp driver off the creative website and install it via device manager.I now have SB Live24-bit,and a SB Live! Value working under Vista.I use the SBLive-24bit for tuunnz,and the SBLive Value for games.

1) Run the livedriverupdate package,this will unpack the driver to USER/Appdata/Local/Temp,do not close warning window.

2)Goto Device manager,look for unknown audio device or multimedia controller with no drivers installed.

3)Click update driver and point to User/appdata/local/temp

4)Install driver and reboot,you should have sound now.

The only 2 games I have installed on Vista are Q4 and Battlestations Midway,Q4 works awesome with either card but BM takes a huge performance hit using the SB-24bit,whereas if I use the SB-Value no performance hit.The 24-bit beta drivers seem to be at fault.

Buy an X-FI soundcard, or you'll have to live with 2 channels. Or you can go with another brand of soundcard that has OpenAL support, but it's doubtful they will have legacy suround support.
