    I installed the Sound Blaster Live, drivers only, in XP compatibility
    mode. It installed and works fine but every time I start Vista the
    following message pops up and then disappears.
    "Completing installation of your audio card", "read reg"

    What do I delete to get rid of this message?

    A new sound card. Sound Blaster Live is not scheduled for a vista driver
    update. The site says this: Please note that the product you have selected
    has been classified as "End of Service Life"

    Read the posts further down this forum. One poster installed the incorrect
    Audigy vista drivers and got the SB Live card to work. I still think you
    should update to a newer card. Be advised that even new cards have some
    problems with Vista. My Creative card has vista drivers and has sound, but no
    gameport support yet.

    Only the 24 bit (newer) models of "Live" have Vista drivers available.
