Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
Realtek download didn't disappear, just not as up to date:
I have no idea what the logic behind the changes is...
before one could simply type "Realtek Audio" or "Realtek HD Audio" and you'd get all the updates, including the latest ones.
Now it really is, at least for me, a matter of being lucky with your searches.
Anyhow, thanks for the update, and thanks to Brink as well!
Yes, each new driver release is a bit of a lucky dip! It adds to the fun I suppose!
No fun if you have to go through 10s of pages to find anything new (this is when searching for "realtek" only, adding more keywords gives more results). Keywords should restrict the results (logical AND) not multiply them (logical OR).
On the Windows Update Catalog I search for Realtek High Definition and then sort by version.
I'm guessing the .cab file name is a hash checksum MS calculates for the .cab. You can be guaranteed it's unique and will change when anything is changed in the cab, even if minor like a comment
Again, great work in noticing the cab filename change! That's a great find!
I don't know how the MUC release process works but it's clear MS allows (minor?) tweaks to a release even after its published.
Lesson learned, it's a good reason to note and track the cab filename installed. It's another reason 2 different people get somewhat different results with the "same" release. Knowing both release # and cab filename could be helpful for when someones helping debug
Installs of the newer ones just throw errors when trying to install.
Have you tried the driver from the vendor. Doesn't look like your m/b uses Realtek chip (scroll down to see)
/* EDIT */
Can have a look at what you DO have and what might be going on
/* EDIT 2*/
Given the circumstance would be better you started a new and separate thread for help as doesn't look Realtek related. You post the link to new thread here but put output of info requested in new thread

I just wanted to say that 188.8.131.5229 sounds better on my system than 8023.

New RealTek HD Audio Driver available in WU.
My ASUS M4N68T-M V2 has a VIA VT1708S onboard audio. The driver I have that worked in Windows 8.1 v10_1200a won't work in 10. Windows doesn't even see the onboard video so it doesn't even look for a driver. It doesn't show up in device manager. In...
