Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

  1.    12 Jun 2017 #651

    Hi,

    No, I do no longer have it in CP. It's in the taskbar with the same functionality as far as I can tell.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for confirming, thought it didn't install correctly because that was what happened in older versions as seen earlier in the thread!

    Weird, I still have the Audio manager in the CP and the System Tray. Not running an Insider build of Windows 10 though.

    Ah at long last - I had jury duty last week and it was completed by the end of the week

    an finally an OEM/motherboard manufacturer with a customized 81xx Realtek audio driver with the Creative audio integration DLL files included. I know for sure the 8142 drivers from MS and from other manufacturers like ASUS and Lenovo do not have them. Gigabyte has a customized 8142 driver that integrates with Sound blaster cinema, X-Fi Mb 2/3/5 & Sound Blaster X 720 [found it in Gigabyte's X299 series motherboard downloads released on 6/2/2017 - direct links to the customized 8142 drivers here > usa, eur & asian sites]. And I thought nobody would release 81xx audio drivers that would have the Creative audio DLL files included.

    I'll install Gigabyte's 8142 drivers on the Dell Inspiron 580 as I like to preserve the Creative X-FI MB2 audio integration on that computer. Other machines with Realtek audio, I'll wait for an 8200 something build as I'm happy with the 8158 version and not updating to 8176.

    Interesting because we are both running Windows 10 x64 Home Creators Update 15063.332 and I don't have the Audio Manager in CP. I remember early in the thread when I was still a regular visitor and updated regularly, there was a issue with the Audio Manager missing and I forgot what I did to fix it as I think it was missing from the CP while the start menu worked. The system tray audio manager is there as long as you open the Realtek HD Audio Manager and click on the little i think on the lower right hand corner and select "Display icon in notification area". Maybe it's because you update with the device manager and the Audio Manager was already on your control panel so it just kept it if it already exists while it doesn't install it in the control panel anymore?

    Don't have that either regardless what it's called.

    Eventually, I also don't have Realtek HD Audio Manager in the Control Panel but, the app is located at C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RAVCpl64 so not a big deal.

    I keep a shortcut for it in my Start Menu, so don't have to be concerned with whether it's present in the Control Panel or not.

    In older versions of the driver and I mean mid-late 2015, when the Realtek HD Audio Manager was not in control panel, it was also not in the control panel and the app is not in the directory where it was supposed to be because there is something in the registry or something that was not installer did not install because it did not completely uninstall. The shortcut in the Start Menu is installed by the installer along with the app. My question was more of if control panel was supposed to have it or not by default since if it was, then there is something wrong with the install and I have to clean the system of the drivers files to make sure none is remaining so it installs correctly.
