Creative Soundblaster Live 5.1 Driver for Windows Vista Download
Mood: tired
Music: No Music at this time

For all of you guys that have had no luck installing your Creative Soundblaster Live 5.1 Driver on Windows Vista, here is a resolution that works!

After I installed Windows Vista I noticed that windows update did not support my Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 so I decided to look for an alternative driver. I tried the following programs that did NOT work.

SBL51_W9xME.exe - This download is a standalone package of Creative Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 software meant for existing 5.1 card users who have lost their installation CD. It also includes the following Creative Audio software suite

ngocmd.exe - This applies to all Live! products, including OEM Dell, Gateway, HP, etc. editions, 24-bit, 5.1, and the rest. Vista 5308 may or may not find drivers on Windows Update, but even if it does, they will not support Digital Audio.

So I went straight to my manufacture...Dell. I begain looking for my computer type, then by its model. I noticed that a old driver was avaliable.

Direct Download from Dell Servers
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Digital

(Note - You do not need a Dell to download this Driver, its from Creative)

So I downloaded it - Right Clicked on it > Properties > Windows XP Compatibility > Apply > Ok. Then I double clicked and installed.

Luckly, after 2 hours of searching I found a resolution to my audio problems window Sound Blaster Live 5.1 for Windows Vista. All of you that have a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy 2, this should also work for you.
