If he edited it it wouldn't have bumped the topic I presume meaning noone would have seen the news of the new driver release.

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi series Driver 2.18.0008
Filesize : 66.17 MB Download
Release date : 17 Dec 08


Sweet, thanks. Any info on a changelog?

Update: Computer hanged on shutting down while restarting. Hard rebooted now it seems like everything is working except CMSS (changes audio to go through all speakers when it'd otherwise only go through the front channels) which is bad because that's the only reason you'd have it. -_-

Update2:

For systems using Windows Vista

  • Dolby® Digital and DTS® decode re-established for sound cards that included decoding in their Windows XP drivers (Not applicable for products that included a 3rd party software DVD player license in the package).
  • DVD-Audio playback re-established for sound cards that included the application in their Windows XP software suite (For Windows Vista 32-bit only).
    Requires the latest Creative MediaSource DVD-Audio Player software. Click here to download.

Fixes:
  • Resolves issue of audio popping when playing AC-3 Wave files or using Dolby Digital Live via the digital output on Windows Vista.
  • Resolves Audio Control Panel issue of incorrect X-Fi CMSS®-3D behavior while using Audio Creation Mode.


So it seems they changes something in the control panel and broke it in the process ehh.....

Well it trashed my system; WMP won't even play MP3s anymore since it says it's missing the codec. Going to be fun trying to fix this mess up, sigh.

as topic are months old, the edit button is not available.

If he edited it it wouldn't have bumped the topic I presume meaning noone would have seen the news of the new driver release.

yes, that's a good point also... this thread is updated as a service to others.

changelog is available at support.creative.com

Did you run the uninstaller (and reboot) before updating?
The installer/uninstaller path is either:
C:\AUDIO\Drivers\XFHX\setup.exe (for Windows XP)
C:\AUDIO\Drivers\SBXF\setup.exe (for Windows Vista)

After reading this, I think I'll wait to upgrade.

Their drivers are ****, anyway. Sound just plain stops working from time to time.

Got things working again. Ran the uninstallers, deleted the driver through device manager, downloaded Guru3D DriverSweeper and ran that in safe mode. Rebooted back into Windows and installed the previous release and working good again.

I had no issues, smooth update as always (unlike on XP, drivers for me sucked on that OS, beside Vista lacking features, lol).

Is this just with xi-fi's or something? I got an audigy 4 from my friend and the drivers work flawlessly with it in vista x64

Although finding them was another story, it is near impossible to actually find the audigy 4 drivers on their site, it's ****ing ridiculous how badly organized it is. I managed to find the most recent ones vista Microsoft's vista compatibility site which linked me right to the page. I tried to see if I could manually find that page on their driver site for the hell of it but it proved impossible.
