Fixes and improvements:

- 3.4: Official Windows 8.1 drivers for Auzentech X-Fi Forte and Auzentech X-Fi HomeTheater HD.

- 3.3 bug fix: Fixed settings not being saved for cards with official Windows 8.1 Support.

- 3.3 bug fix: Apps don't need to be RunAsAdmin anymore on Windows 10, but you still need to shutdown your system for the settings to be saved.

- 3.2 small bug fix: Only for Auzentech X-Fi Prelude and SB X-Fi Titanium OEM HP/Fujitsu cards, OpenAL redistributable was not being updated

- Fixed Windows 10 driver installation issues

- Improved setup script and install process

- Installation is now future proof

- Installation now customizable, select what you want to install.

- Updated applications and shared components.

- New integrated Post Driver Install Helper tweaks the driver without tampering certificate.

- Setup now properly detects multiple devices and aborts if more than one device is found.

- Setup now fully supports multi product installation.

- 64-bit ASIO / OpenAL support for Auzentech Prelude and 64-bit OpenAL support for all other cards (as they already support 64-bit ASIO with their official drivers).





Release Notes:


IF WINDOWS 8 / 8.1 / 10 DOES NOT SAVE SETTINGS

Configure all settings and shutdown Windows so that your settings will be saved.

This does not work if you disable Fast startup permanently or temporarily (by holding the Shift key while shutting down).



INCLUDED SB X-FI PCI DRIVER WORKS IN WDM MODE

In order to support all of the original features of the SB X-Fi PCI cards (except the OEM SB077x models), the included driver operates in WDM mode, which may not work in some hardware configurations, specially those based on the NVIDIA nForce chipsets.

An UAA mode Support Pack will be available later.



MEDIASOURCE DVD-AUDIO PLAYER AVAILABLE ONLY ON PCI CARDS

This feature is available on all SB X-Fi PCI models, except SB0730, SB073A, SB0760 and SB077x OEM.

THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!! i ve a gigabyte Assassin 2 and i can't install my Win10 for this !!!!

Thanks for this! Been using it with Windows 10. The official driver wouldn't let me launch the Audio Control Panel. I don't know if people still have issues with settings not being saved. Still running into this problem. What I do to make it save settings is to make all the changes I want. Just put the computer into sleep mode and then wake the computer up. For some reason this makes it save the settings properly. Then you can do a full proper reboot and you will see your settings have been saved even after a reboot.

Thank you so very much for this! The only issue I had with Windows 10 was my soundcard. Since I love music that was a disaster to have to rely on Windows poor settings. So, thanks again :)

Thank you very much for this Creative XFi Driver set for Win 10!
Its not the first time that Creative Labs lets its customers down with Driver issues.
But your pack is working flawlessly on my PC. You Sir saved my XFi and my day!

Sa Wu said...

Thank you! Just recently, the Windows 10 Upgrade hit me, no sound at all afterwards. Now back to enjoying my 5.1 speakers again! Thank you!

Webworld said...

I'm so happy to enjoy my Creative Sound Card year after year on OS after OS, you made that so easy to me.....Thanx a million ;0)

ONE COMMENT TO HELP! I would like to tell everybody, to keep settings, it's vital to put your System to sleep, after you set your personal settings, waking up again will keep it like that, even survive crashes....

Any chance these might work for the X-Fi Notebook series?

Thorn said...

Thanks so much! I got it working perfectly now——Support Pack 3.5 with Windows 10, build 10240. You should be on Creative's payroll for sure! Thanks again for the awesome work! :)

Installed Windows 10 last night and was Creatively bummed. Found you today and installed pack 3.5. What a coder you are. Far Cry 4 and I are back on track.

Thanks so much.

Hi Daniel K,

here is the old man with the W10 and Auzentech Hometheater HD again.
My problem is solved. I have use the PCIe package but this was wrong. The download link to the 3.5 package just worked flawlessly.

Thanks a lot!
