    I solved the .cab file part, but not the subwoofer issue.

    Windows wasn't seeing the .cab file. The confusion on my end is that when I put the file in a new folder, it opened automatically just by clicking on it without any sort of winrar or 7-zip.
    So I thought Windows could simply see the sub files without any extraction.
    And it wouldn't open with extractnow, which is what I normally use.
    So I clicked on the .cab file, and when it opened I just right-click copied the files, and pasted to my folder.
    I then pointed the driver update to the folder and windows successfully updated the driver.

    Still no subwoofer output, no matter which selections I make in "Configure".

    So I redid troubleshooting 101.
    Checked the settings on the sub to make sure they were correct.
    Followed the wires to make sure they were correct.
    Swapped the sub into the stereo out on my motherboard and the sub works.
    Put the sub back onto it's dedicated motherboard out and nothing.
    And it worked right up until this windows 10 install, which is now the creator's edition after upgrades.

    Oh, and one important thing: When I do the test signals for surround sound, windows sends a signal to the sub and it's loud and clear.
    But it just doesn't activate during any music.

    I have to say that it's not good the way Windows 10 wants to micromanage this.

    You used to have a Realtek application in the tool tray that you could open and select the sub, and you were up and running in seconds.

    Was wondering what others think of 8237.

    I agree asturias7, music sounds lifeless and boring with 8237. I rolled back to 8233 last night

    Well it's pretty obvious that there is no actual fix for the no-subwoofer output problem.

    So I went ahead and ordered an extra pair of interconnects for my audio system.

    It's a shame that MS screwed this up so bad, but it is what it is.

    At least i'll have my sub working again, and i've got wayyy too much money tied up in this setup to not having working properly.

    I really didn't want to route everything through the sub, as it's really not the cleanest signal path, but whatever.

    That is what annoyed me about Realtek. Like with dd-wrt they fix something just to break something else then they fix it just to break what was fixed before. I wonder if these Realtek drivers are really beta?

    I think they just churn them out and don't really care about the end result, at the end of the day they are all about making money.

    did you test it? how does it sound?

    I'm still at 8228, I think it has the better sound so far
