I used the one labeled "Vista, Windows7, Windows8, Windows8.1, Driver (32/64bits) Driver only (ZIP file)"

 

Just unzip it to the desktop and choose "update drivers" from the device manager node for your audio.

i just updated my aunt's Vista computer to 8.1 last weekend and installed the realtek hd driver for it just fine. there has to be some underlining issue on your computer causing the installer to crash

 

is this a fresh install or an upgrade from a previous OS?

Its fresh install.

I tried that one as well but I didn't use Device Manager method, let me check.

i uninstall previous version and restart, after restart, install the Win7_Win8_Win81_R272.exe 192 MB (202,160,500 bytes) on my windows 7 32bit, after restart and input my user accounts password at the login screen, windows stuck at login screen loading forever, have to reset and go to safe mode to uninstall the new 2.72 driver to be able login to windows again. after that install the previous version 2.71, windows and sound work as usual like before, this new 2.72 version of driver has some issues. i had tried multiple times, even try to download from another realtek international server, and uninstall and reinstall again, it still stuck at login screen after i input my user accounts password.

 

i report this issues to realtek without getting any reply.

Glad it worked! I think the issue is related to the exe files that are in the driver package. I always disable the Realtek control panel in the task manager's startup tab, too. It likes to throw UAC prompts occasionally for some reason and all of the settings in it are also mirrored in the audio properties dialogs.

I got some issues too with this flavor R272 on Windows 8.1 on my Gigabyte Motherboard. After installing new drivers I lost my Optical output I use for an external Amp. No way to get it back.
I had to uninstall and use the R270 older drivers..

At last today I finally managed to resolve this issue where Install and Uninstall of Realtek HD 2.72 (executable setup) onward drivers failing for me on Windows 8.1.

 

It was "Maximum Security Settings" of Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit from Microsoft, as a workaround if you switch to "Recommend Security Settings" then executable setups will work fine. It happens with EMET 4.0, EMET 4.1, EMET 4.1 update 1 and till EMET 5.0 TP3.

 

I filed bug on EMET 5.0 Microsoft Connect Feedback, here is its URL: https://connect.micr...ll-or-uninstall

Hopeful that they fix it.

 

Here is screenshot of what to do:

I only bumped this thread to add worthwhile solution for only scenario affecting me.

For others Eric solution using ZIP drivers and using Device Manager also works.
