    The problem for me is solved.
    I reproduced this 10 times in a row.
    Installing UFX.39 cause the "ASIO missing / ASIO Control Panel won't open".
    Uninstalling UFX does NOT fix the problem.
    Simply DELETE this KEY:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\kX\ASIO
    The WHOLE "folder" ASIO, not only the keys inside it.
    Close the editor, you even do not need to restart kXMixer., just close the regedit.
    Then try to open kX ASIO panel from the tray icon...
    For me it works perfectly.
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\kX\ASIO <-- is recreated (with "non-zero values" keys inside) after you open ASIO panel.

    EDIT: If you do not want to use UFX - deinstall them and do the steps, mentioned earlier.
    If you want to use UFX - install them (the bug will appear), then do the same steps and you will have both things working again (ASIO & UFX).
    Somehow...the restart of KX Mixer AFTER installing UFX changes all keys in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\kX\ASIO to 0 values.
    I can't detect if the actual installation of UFX do this before restarting of KX Mixer...or the KX Mixer by itself..

    My advice is uninstall the driver and then uninstall the kx package; reboot your computer let the original drivers install. Reboot again and reinstall the KX drivers; reboot again and you are set.

    If your card is not detected after deleting the KX drivers and rebooting; then go to the device manager, delete the sound card drivers from there and reboot. Then follow the above instructions.

    If it does not work just try it all over again (I don't think it will be necesary but sometimes it is).

    Well, UFX installer does not touch any of kX's registry keys (except those related to plug-ins), so...
    The workaround would be just to close kxmixer before installing UFX.

    Update: I just ran into this issue again with kX 3543 (right after installing UFX this time)...

    The fix worked same as before, but only if you restart kxmixer once first.

    Here is the registry info containing the default settings (for one card only):

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\kX\ASIO]
    "BPS_0"="16"
    "Latency_0"="384"
    "Freq_0"="48000"
    "Rec_0"="16"
    "Pb_0"="16"
    "AsioMethod_0"="131073"
    
    After installing UFX, the above keys (for some unknown reason) all got set to zero (but you only see it after restarting kxmixer).

    Here is step-by-step info for reproducing and fixing:

    Install UFX.

    Try opening the ASIO CP.

    If it does not open, restart kxmixer (reboot is not necessary).

    Use above .reg info to restore the kX ASIO settings.

    Try opening the ASIO CP again... (should work).

    ...

    I also tried quitting kxmixer before/while running the UFX installer (as Max suggested), and that seemed to work (as in prevent the problem from happening) as well.

    ...
    Note: If you have more than one card installed, than the above reg info will be repeated once for each card.

    i.e.

    "BPS_0"="16"
    "Latency_0"="384"
    "Freq_0"="48000"
    "Rec_0"="16"
    "Pb_0"="16"
    "AsioMethod_0"="131073"
    "BPS_1"="16"
    "Latency_1"="384"
    "Freq_1"="48000"
    "Rec_1"="16"
    "Pb_1"="16"
    "AsioMethod_1"="131073"
