You could try to install using Compatibility Mode with Windows 7. Other than that, it's just an .inf issue. You could easily edit it to be compatible with Windows 6.2 if you inspect its format. Basically, look to see why Windows 6.2 is not accepting it while 6.1 does. Could be as simple as changing a 1 to a 2.

(Windows 8 = version 6.2)

Also, make sure your hardware id is in the .inf too.

This is for x86. If x64, then you'll have to disable driver enforcement permanently or at boot each time.


---------

Here is an example, based on the February 14, 2012 8.96 Catalyst beta driver from ATI/AMD. This is in the .inf:
Code:
[Manufacturer]
%ATI% = ATI.Mfg, NTx86.6.1, NTx86.5.1, NTx86.6.0
In this case, I would edit it to be:

Code:
[Manufacturer]
%ATI% = ATI.Mfg, NTx86.6.1, NTx86.5.1, NTx86.6.0, [COLOR=#a52a2a][B]NTx86.6.2[/B][/COLOR]
And then all hardware ids are under this section:

Code:
[ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.1]
So, that could be edited to say

Code:
[ATI.Mfg.NTx86.6.[COLOR=#a52a2a][B]2[/B][/COLOR]]
instead.

In Device Manager, are there any unknown devices at all? Could you please post a screenshot of it if possible?

Sounds to me like your motherboard bios could use an update to the newest from the manufacturer AND MAYBE a tweak to its settings after.

The first thing of interest here is to get it to show up in the device manager in some shape or form.

Has this card worked recently in another OS like Windows 7?

Alright, this should not be too difficult from here. What I would need from you is to right click on that Multimedia Audio Controller. Choose Properties then go to Details tab. Change the dropdown to say Hardware ids. Then copy/paste the results here.

I will find you the correct driver or edit one to hopefully work, if that is not possible.

No, disabling your other audio device is not necessary at all. They both can co-exist happily on the same system.

Microsoft had this driver on their server but it is not for your EXACT hardware id so that is why they did not give it to you with Windows Update.

I fixed it so it works for you. Extract my download to a folder.

Right click Multimedia Audio Controller as before in the device manager. Choose Update driver software. Browse my computer. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse.

Now find wdma_emu.inf in the folder you extracted to. Click on it. Hit next then ok and it will install.

Creative.zip

If that alone does not install for you like that, then copy/paste my attachment contents from the below link over the .inf in that above extract folder first:

let me pick requirates to click on something from list. multimedia audio controller is not listed, so what should i click on?
Click on have disk now, then browse. Now find and click on the .inf.

If that install fails, then like I said above, patch the .inf with the 2nd download as I've shown to do and try again.

Thanks for the compliment. Yes, everything should work as normal and well.

I am unfamiliar with that hardware, but if you notice missing apps or whatnot that you used to have, you can try installing again from the link in the original post of this thread.

Since it is not meant for you card, it will not touch the driver at all and may go on to install software. Or you could try installing just that particular app inside the download folder if it has it's own setup.exe or .msi file. Or you could even try copying over folder(s) from other operating systems that are working and just try running programs to see if they are able to without even an install.

Just some ideas...

Enjoy!
