Here is your .inf file. Just download the previous Creative.zip I linked to. Extract it to a folder. Then take the .inf from this post and copy/paste it over the one already in the Creative extracted folder.

Follow the previous insructions now how to install in the Device Manager.

Let me know how it goes and if it works. If not, I'll see what I can do.

Wow that was a really quick response!!

I got a step further last time. It shows the hardware name "Creative X-Fi Audio Processor (WDM)" but its not letting me install the the driver.

"The hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering.

This the first time I've ever seen that type of error and I've done this hundreds if not thousands of times.

You could try removing the .cat file completely out of the directory and trying again. I'll think of what else might be possible as well.

Edit: This is a little older from 2007 but you could try this driver. It is for XP and actually intended by the manufacturer for your card. You must use Internet Explorer to get it. You can extract it with Winrar. Then install just like before.

See how it goes. It might not even go because it's XP driver, but then again, there is a good chance it will:

Microsoft Update Catalog


-----

Or yet a third thing you can try with how your machine is exactly now is to place all the .sys files in C:\Windows\System32\drivers

Place the .inf in C:\Windows\Inf

Place the .dll files in C:\Windows\System32

Reboot and hope for the best.

Thanks GMan.

The soundcard driver is now installed but...

Only SPDIF output works and now windows 8 keeps freezing =(

I think I will just wait it out a bit until Creative or Windows update us with drivers that are compatible.

I was really starting to get a hang of windows 8 too. But having no audio right now pretty much blows.

Ill check again in a week or so.

Thanks for all your help. I appreciate it!

Ya, sounds exactly like Creative to me for sure. Out of curiosity, are you talking about the XP driver installed now or the one from my Creative.zip?

You're welcome.

XP driver now
If you're feeling adventurous, and this is unlikely to work but no harm in trying, copy all of the .sys files from the Creative.zip (i386 folder) over the .sys files at C:\Windows\System32\drivers

Do the same for the .inf I specifically made for you to C:\Windows\Inf

and reboot. Test.

You could make a System Restore point before doing so in case you want to put it back to how it is now without much troubles.

Hey guys

Today i installed the Win8 CP. Everythin's fine, the only problem is that when i install X-Fi driver (the one that ive been usin on Win7), it installs only the driver itself, nothin else! I got sound, i got everythin, but no Creative Control Panel (which is a must..). I've seen that HPDeskjet uploaded screenshots with the Control Panel open.

Could you help me get that darn Control Panel, guys? :D Thanks!

Hi GMan,

I'm new here, so I apologize in advance if I have to introduce myself on the forums before posting my question..

I have the same problem, I can't install the Creative X-Fi driver on Windows 8. I also have a Multimedia Audio Controller entry on Device Manager, and following your instructions my Hardware ids are:

PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&SUBSYS_00291102&REV_00
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&SUBSYS_00291102
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&CC_040100
PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_0005&CC_0401

Thank you in advance for your help!

That's how I started on forums; it was when my motherboard had faulty capacitors on it and before I figured that out. Every time my machine would create thumbnails for video files, the machine would bug check. So I asked for help on the forum and really got into debugging from that point on. I easily could have replaced the caps with low esr type as I've done to fix NVIDIA cards, but I found a better motherboard than what I had, compatible with everything (it was the only one I could find online actually) for $30 US to my door. I've been using it perfectly ever since.

So welcome! Now, your issue.

I'll be right on it, probably with success, but to even begin thinking about this, I need to know if you installed Windows 8 x64 or x86 (64 bit or 32 bit, that means.)

Hi GMan,

Thanks for the welcome :)

It's Windows 8 in 32 bit.
You're welcome.

I found a 2010 driver for similar hardware. I needed to edit the .inf for it to work on your machine with your hardware. I've done it rather quickly and don't own anything by Creative. Because of those things, it might now work immediately for you. If not, let me know and I will try to fix it. Should be fine though.

Extract the download to a folder. Open device manager. Right click the unknown device (or Creative) line needing the driver. Choose Update driver software, Browse My Computer...., Let me pick...., Have disk, click Browse

Now find wdma_emu.inf in the extracted folder and double click on it. Hit next and then ok. It will then install.

To install the app(s) that come with it, you can then try going to \DudeLove_Creative_driver\common\i386 in the extracted folder and running AppSetup.exe but I'm not entirely sure it will do so. Good chances.

Good luck and enjoy. (Save the download in a good permanent place outside of your machine in case you need it for a new install or something.)

Hi GMan,

thanks once again for the file. I installed it exactly as you said and it did recognize it, but I still have no available audio service (The Audio Service is not running.) I've tried to uninstall it and do it again, but no dice. Wonder what's wrong?

Maybe 2nd time is the goods? Try replacing the .inf in the downloaded/extracted folder with the first one in attachments here, then install again same as before.

If not, try the 2nd attachment to replace the .inf.

If either works, then create you own zip or rar of the folder for archive purposes.
