Final updates for my Support Packs and farewell

Hi everyone.

It's been almost 15 years since my first pack, now it's time to say goodbye.

This is my last round of updates for my Support Packs. They were under testing since January to ensure the best experience to everyone.

Thanks to canonkong, a nice chinese guy, my drivers are properly signed and can be easily installed without any special procedures, even with Secure Boot enabled.

Please read the ReadMe during Setup for more useful information.

Hopefully the changes in Windows 11 won't break the drivers to the point of being unusable.

Thanks for your support for all these years.


Take care,
daniel_k

Unsupported Audigy LS / Rocketfish 5.1 / SB 5.1 VX features on Windows XP

On Windows XP, 6.1 and 7.1 Speakers configurations are incorrectly available, as those cards do not have the hardware required to support these configurations.

Selecting 6.1 or 7.1 Speakers will automatically reset the configuration to 5.1 Speakers.


Auxiliary and S/PDIF-In record inputs and Microphone +20dB Boost available in the mixer don't work, as those cards do not support the features.



Configuring CMSS on Windows Vista or later

For all supported cards, except the X-Fi Xtreme Audio, Audio Console must be used to configure CMSS, which is not available in the Entertainment Console.
