Windows 10: accidentally deleted dolby audio from add/remove programs
accidentally deleted dolby audio from add/remove programs
Hi, I am new here. I have encountered a very strange and depressing problem...
So while deleting some programs on add/remove programs on windows 10, I accidentally deleted two dolby audio programs. I don't know the exact names, it happened pretty fast. I just read "preparing to remove" and find myself unable to stop it. Worst is I haven't created any restore point.
I became extremely worried because I love dolby audio's sound a lot. So I decided to just make sure the dolby audio programs I deleted were truly deleted and just reinstall it again. But shockingly when I go to playback devices, the dolby audio tab is still there and I can still turn it on.
1. I am using windows 10 64 bit. The dolby audio programs in the add/remove programs are already there when I first used my operating system. What exactly have I deleted?
2. It seems nothing really bad happened. Why is that? I am so concerned because I feel I might have done something unknown to my sound drivers. Did I do something very wrong but is unknown to me right now?
3. What should I do next? Should I try to get those back? But I really can't remember the exact names. I really didn't mean to delete them.
Thanks for your help.
Hi, open event viewer, and search for any of the 3 event id's shown at the bottom of the middle window:
That should let you find the names of the programs you uninstalled.
(I assume you uninstalled them, rather than 'deleting' something).
Hi, Here's what I found:
Windows Installer removed the product. Product Name: Dolby Audio X2 Windows API SDK. Product Version: 0.6.3.44. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Dolby Laboratories, Inc.. Removal success or error status: 0.
Windows Installer removed the product. Product Name: Dolby Audio X2 Windows APP. Product Version: 0.6.3.48. Product Language: 1033. Manufacturer: Dolby Laboratories, Inc.. Removal success or error status: 0.
So what are those? I can't find any information about them online. Are those important? Should I reinstall them?
There's plenty of info.. only you can decide their relevance to your PC/configuration.
For example, were they supplied with your PC originally- if so, you'd find them on your manufacturer's site.
As to tidying up your installation, if you think they were partially uninstalled, you can
- download and reinstall
- if then you don't want them try uninstalling using Revo uninstaller or Geek uninstaller (free).
