    Hi all!

    First of all: good news, kxdrivers are working fine with Windows 8, testing 3550 right now. BUT the kxmixer does not recognize the sound drivers for my SB Live 5.1 and crashes with "Error initializing your Audio Card" though my speakers are working fine.

    I just need to setup Recording and swapping Front/Back in the kxmixer.

    Any chance I could get it running at all? I've tried starting it as an Administrator.

    Hey, just installed Windows8 and had the same problem but I figure it out. (I'm using 3551 Alpha)

    First start by going to regedit

    Code:
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
    And change kxmixer from system32 to program files. This should repair kxmixer boot.

    Then for the problem it self the "...WinMM subsystem" just go to C:\Program Files\kX Project and change compatibility to Windows Vista, check "Run as administrator" too.
    Then try to open it, it worked fine for me, DSP is working too.

    Have fun, for me everything going great on 8, much faster than Windows 7 :)
