    Installer Patch now on 6.0

    .bat file no longer needed all commands are executed
    by the ctcomp.exe file internal system. All you need
    to do is point ctcomp.exe to the directory where you
    have extracted the Audigy 2 CD or Driver Update files the
    exe will do the rest including re-setting file attributes
    to allow the patch to make modifications to the new
    CD which has read-only files. The exe will also show
    a status of what it did. this should correct a few errors
    I've seen.

    I just updated the drivers from my Live! 5.1 to .323 and everything seems to be in working order. *knocks on wood*

    I didn't run the modified ctcomp on the drivers that I got from the sb_install_multilang.rar file though. I ran the ctzapxx.exe in the drivers folder from the archive and it updated my drivers regardless to .283...?

    Also, I didn't update any of my SB apps from the Audigy archives. I stayed with the ones from the latest 5.1 webupdate and everything works fine.

    Sometimes I got these hacked Chinese Software Suite working, sometimes not, but it uses old drivers (.252) and I can't see any real advantage compared to the "normal" Creative drivers/software on my good old SBLive! Value. Installing Audigy2 drivers (which I hacked as described at he beginning of the thread) lead to a crash of most apps, only the Sourround Mixer was working, but neither Speaker Settings nor -Calibration worked, AudioHQ even ended up in a short BlueScreen and a followig reset of the whole PC. So I decided to install the hacked .323 drivers togehter with AudioHQ and Sourround Mixer (which includes Speaker Settings in this version) from the LiveDrivePack available Creative Asia. And erverythíng runs fine and stable, sound quality improved a bit. The old software gives me all necessary options I need for 4.1 sound in gaming and listening mp3s.

    Using the latest WDM drivers w/ older apps seems to be the easiest way to go. I'm glad you guys or gals are seeing improvements w/ your cards with the latest drivers.

    Cheers and Happy New Year!!!

    I have a sound blaster live!, and everything seems to work correctly (well, more or less), with those drivers (.323). I've even managed to run audiohq, diagnose and the speaker settings program - but they will run ONLY if the eax console and speaker calibration are not installed.

    And, at last, I hear the music in Silent Hill 2 without the annoying music loop problem!

    So, have any of you bright-minded individuals managed to figure out how to slipstream all of the 12-20-2002 software/driver updates with the Audigy2 setup CD so lazy folks like me won't have to run 6 software updates after installing fresh drivers? :p

    Thanks for that post! You helped me a lot! Now I'm able to use the new software suite without any problems. OK, that Chinese driver pack worked, too, but it uses old .252 drivers. Maybe RIV@NVX should update the guide for Live! users with your hint. Sourround Mixer also runs fine.
