    Update to 10130 No sound drivers won't install

    As above my rig updated to build 10130 I had no sound (SoundBlaster Zx) played around a bit but couldn't get it to work, so I uninstalled it and now it will not reinstall.
    I have run a cleaner so it got rid of all creative stuff tried again but no good, any ideas please ?

    I've had lots of issues with SoundBlaster drivers in the past.. that could be the issue. In this case a re-install of Win10 may be needed but I'm sure other will have a better answer.. good luck.

    Have you tried installing it in a Compatibility mode, for whatever OS version the drivers are for?

    I've answered couple of threads about this isssue. Here's one of them:
    Solved No audio with PCI Express X-Fi Titanium - Windows 10 Forums
    I am using SB XFi. Prior to 10130. MS install the default driver for it but in 10130, XFi driver was installed. Initially, I did not have any sound so I opened the Device Manager->Sound and disabled then re-enabled then got the sound.

    @OP, you might want to download the driver from Creative. The whole package is probably an exe file, just right click and extract it to a folder then search under Drivers->wdm, there should be an .inf file there, just right click and select install.
