The strangest thing happened on my way to get sound out of Vista

    I hope someone out in the forum can help me understand this:

    I can't figure out for the life of me, why after installing the previous
    version of Windows Vista Beta 2 that I got sound out it with my current sound
    Soundblaster Live! gamer. But now with this new version: Windows Vista
    (RC1), I can't get sound out it. Using the same sound card.

    I can't believe Microsoft would release a new version of Vista and take away
    the support for most sound cards, and now there is no support for most?

    Well... you guest it. I can't get the sound to work. Vista (RC1) runs very
    well, but no sound. I found out that Creative Labs, those folks that created
    the Soundblaster Card will not support Vista Beta until the final release.

    So since Microsoft is continuing with the Beta of Vista, then what happened
    to the sound files that I thinik were imbedded within the Beta?

    Can anyone help?

    I feel like running around in circles, and stop, to see if my head would
    continue spinning.

    did you do an upgrade or clean install? Have you gone into device
    manager and tried to update drive.

    Hello danbrown, and thanks for responding.

    I did a clean install. Because the installation said "upgrade disabled"

    I went into device manager I attempted to update the driver, but it could
    not find an updated driver on IE, nor within it's own data base of drivers

    If you have the f you are using a 2 OS set-up, you may be able to snatch the
    driver files from your XP drive or partition.. Just a thought...

    Hey you guuyyss!!

    I found the driver from a website called.....oh, oh, forgot the name. Will
    post it soon. This website host the drivers for Soundblaster Live! Gamer for
    Vista Beta (RC1). It's so unfortunate Creative has an attitude problem, not
    supporting the Vista Beta until the Final release.

    My next forum Post might be: Creative company's ATTITUDE problems.
