I haven't been able to install Creative drivers since Vista. They didn't work for me on Seven (the first x64 OS I ran full time), and they still don't work for me on Eight. I gave up on them and defaulted to Windows' built in drivers.
Damn that sucks. They always worked no issues at all for me in both 7 and most recently 8. I was actually surprised as they seemed better than ever as well, never really liked them in XP. In fact the only reason I even stuck with them is I got the sound card for free. I may just uninstall the card and go onboard. However...
Creative drivers do suck. I would recommend looking at Daniel K's drivers. http://danielkawakami.blogspot.com/
Hmmm, looks like he does not have drivers yet for my card.
However there does appear to be a fix for the issue I am having.
Apparently I need to install the drivers, change some settings, put the computer to sleep, reboot, and that should keep the Creative drivers active.
I think for now I will just stay with default. I may even go with my onboard sound. Will see.
my logitech software is forking fine with my g110 have not had any issues, i also updated the software via logitech software also
When it actually works, it seems to be working fine, it is just for whatever reason it does not always launch at startup and on top of that it is like it is nowhere to be found either. This is after a complete uninstall. Twice now actually.
It seems something at startup is interfering with it, thing is I do not have much going on at startup at all, so really not sure what it could be. I absolutely prefer to use the Logitech Software though over the Windows Default. My mouse has adjustable/programmable dpi which I always take advantage of, my keyboard has an LCD display that works with EVGA Precision X and allows me to monitor my temps, FPS, etc., so I really prefer that they stay working, just have no clue why they will not.
THanks Joe USer and Neu B on how to disable the MS account.
The upgrader literally forced me to set it up in order to proceed. I clicked back on that option 3 times hoping I could skip it, and it was the only way to actually proceed with the upgrade. That was suspect indeed.
