    I installed it but when I try to run the Audio Console I get the following
    message:

    "The audio device supported by this application is not detected. The
    application will exit."

    Ok... nice.

    Sigh...

    I still have sound but without the ability to access the audio console I'm
    not able to make any real adjustments or test out past missing features
    (like surround sound.) I work on this later as I don't have time to work on
    it now.

    I have Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum EX - the downloaded driver installed
    without any problems and I can open and adjust the settings in Audio Console.
    I installed the Vista specific driver only from Creative. I have a clean
    install of RC2.

    I have repeatedly asked Creative whether they plan to port their audio
    utilities, such as Recorder, SoundFont Manager, the equalizer, etc. to
    Vista, as few of these function under that platform, no doubt due to the
    reality that audio is handled substantially differently in Vista than in
    its predecessor operating systems.

    To date all responses have been standard boilerplate "we do not support
    beta applications." XP would not run some of their applications that
    were bundled in the Win '95/'98 era, but they came out with a
    "fulfillment" disk that updated them. Perhaps Creative will do the same
    with Vista.

    Audio drivers, on the otherhand, have remained relatively consistent.
    Here XP drivers appear to function well in Vista beta.
