    Can be done differently, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Realtek\Audio\RtkNGUI64\General and ShowTrayIcon change 0 to 1 and reboot.
    As you can see its parameter for RtkNGUI64, so Realtek HD Audio Manager its RtkNGUI64.exe not RAVCpl64.exe.
    Yes, after install 8186 i see in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don't load RTSnMg64.cpl (in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\don't load did not have RTSnMg64.cpl) and in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Realtek\Audio\RtkNGUI64\General ShowTrayIcon=0. After deleted RTSnMg64.cpl in "don't load" and set ShowTrayIcon=1 anyway dont show in Control Panel, Realtek HD Audio Manager dont start.
    Here post few people who install 8186, they have too this problem.
    I stopped at 8224 and manually installed dts service for DTS UltraPC 2 from 8186. Sry for my English.
    Yeah, there can always be bugs with certain versions of the drivers only for certain people while it works for others.

    I'm sure there was a registry key for it, just didn't know where it was. I am looking at my recycle bin and it sees like I went from 8176 to 8189 and skipped 8186. I also used the Setup.exe from Realtek's website that is 8036 and then installed the latest WindowsUpdate which was 8210 on top of it which restored the Realtek HD Audio Manager in start menu but not the one in control panel which was actually due to the don't load. There was probably a version prior to 8176 that I ran that did the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\don't load withRTSnMg64.cpl. Did the Realtek HD Audio Manager start for you before you took out the RTSnMg64.cpl in the "don't load", I never had it in HKEY_CURRENT_USER though. Interesting why it put the Control Panel in don't load for some people but not others unless it was a specific version that did it and obviously Realtek's uninstaller probably does not even remove the don't load. How did you manually install the DTS Service for DTS UltraPC 2?

    Yeah Tonyb, it seems like we both have seen some weird things with realtek.

    I think you or the other person probably meant it didn't install the Realtek HD Audio Manager and just the drivers but that doesn't seem to be the case. I mean that is the only tool there is for the drivers. As for codecs, thought that was part of Windows Media Player and you can use optional codec packages like K-Lite for example and wasn't included with drivers anyways.

    I don't really care much for it in start menu, only wanted it in tray.
    The start menu one seems to be installed only when you install drivers using the setup.exe but as long as you can get Realtek HD Audio Manager in control manager and able to run it, then all is fine as the system tray icon seems to require either running Realtek HD Audio Manager to toggle it on or manually changing a registry key. I wanted it in the tray but it had to be somewhere first and basically I was trying to figure out why it was missing in Control Panel even though it's in Start Menu.

    I have no idea when I started seeing it but it seems to come from using the setup.exe installer and not the device manager method and if the setup.exe did not install that, then the installation and broken and another install is needed.

    I'd agree with that Almighty1. When we used to get direct downloads from the Realtek ftp server the .zip file always contained a setup.exe file, when using that I had Realtek entries in the start menu. Since I started using .cab files for installing I never see an entry in the Start menu. Not that it bothers me as I never use things like the Realtek HD Audio Manager, I just have the EQ set flat at default all the time. It makes it easier when comparing various releases. I do have Audio Manager in the CP and System Tray though

    I actually gave up on using the EQ since everytime setup.exe runs, it uninstalls and reinstalls so all the settings are gone. On a laptop, the sound on headphones seems low in volume so it's needed but I am using Fx Sound formerly known as DFX instead fot that part as it's a pain in the you know where having to do the settings again as I basically used the screenshot and a piece of paper to try to match it, it would be better if they labeled it with the -+dB but I really only use the Realtek HD Audio Manager to set the Hz and sampling rate under the three tabs. Before, when I used the setup.exe method, I always thought the device manager only did the drivers only but not the Realtek HD Audio Manager. I guess there has to be a version or version(s) that added the Audio Manager in the don't load part of the registry and basically that is the point of no return unless one manually deletes that key before seeing the Audio Manager in the Control Panel again. In fact, I didn't know it was the setup.exe that did the start menu based Realtek HD Audio Manager which is really just a shortcut link until you told me a month or so ago.

    The trouble with the Realtek setup.exe is that it deletes all registry and driver store entries of Realtek HD Drivers, there is no way in Device Manager to roll back the driver because there aren't any builds to roll back to, they've all been wiped. If you uninstall the Realtek HD drivers through Programs and features it does a basic uninstall and if you run CCleaner Registry Cleaner after a reboot it will find over 200 invalid registry entries related to Realtek. So actually the Realtek installer for HD Audio does a great job for a clean install.
