Vista Audigy modded Drivers

The Creative X-Fi Vista drivers have been released. They include new version of Audigy wdm drivers too, but unfortunately - the setup didn't recognize Audigy-series cards, and Audio Console didn't work either. Now here's the real deal - I've modified the setup files so it WILL recognize Audigy cards, install the newest drivers properly, and also included the Audio Console which is compatible with Audigy.

Well, it will work, like 5.1, cmss, eax is working thru alchemy (not free, costs 10 bucks).
If you search for audigy driver cd for vista you'll find it.
After you install those aditional appz it's nearly the same functionality as in xp.

This is not a biggie really ! I only modded the setup files and put older Audio Console which was compatible with Audigy cards...
The drivers for audigy are bundled with the orginal pack too, but they won't install with setup.
Give me feedback please how they work and if they are better/worse than the 2.15.0003/2 drivers...

eilegz - unfortunately - no, sorry.
This is an really old product, which is not supported by Creative itself.
