    So, as stated in your post and just to clarify, it is ok to update the "COMPATIBLE" Drivers ONLY thru Device Manager and just leave out the "NOT COMPATIBLE" ones… correct?
    Hi and welcome to TenForums

    Yep. For each audio component in Device Manager, just point to the folder with the new drivers and let it do its thing!
    Just have in mind that only the base Realtek driver and the Software components can be installed via Device Manager. The Extensions cannot be updated that way, since they don't exist in Device Manager.
    Once you update the Software Components, the corresponding Extension will be updated automatically by Windows Update, within the next couple of days. That's the general rule.
    In your case, since you also have the corresponding Extensions in the new driver folder, the Software Component might find it and install it. I haven't tested that, so I'm not sure if it works. Just try and see.

    If you don't mind, try also the "NOT Compatible" ones, to see if they will be installed. The "Compatibility" test of the script besides the existence of the .inf file and the check for the component's HWid in it, also checks if the number of files of the new driver and the installed one is the same. This last check is not accurate as the vendor (Waves Audio, in your case) might decide to add or remove files from its driver, which doesn't necessarily deem the new driver incompatible.
    I'm trying to resolve this issue in a later version of the script.

    AWESOME! Thank you @ddelo for your insight and reply! Will try to install it using the Manufacturer's Installer first and see what would be updated.

    The Manufacturer's installer should install everything properly!
    The PowerShell script is intended for people who want to manually update, by downloading new drivers from Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Well, it ended up not working(No Sound at all), so uninstalled the latest driver, cleaned using DDU and Driver Restore Explorer, and installed the Manufacturer's Recommended Drivers AND individually installed the COMPATIBLE ones and so far WORKING!

    Here is my results for my components as of:


    Code:
    Audio Device INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0256&SUBSYS_10280825 is controlled by a DCH Driver.
    
    Audio Device Driver
    -------------------
    Realtek(R) Audio: hdxdellsstcsmb2018.inf [6.0.9098.1]
    
    Audio Control Application*
    --------------------------
    No Audio Control Application is installed.

    Nice work in this section DDELO

    Just for your information, new Z590 series high end boards have the new Realtek 4080 codec series.
    They don't use the usual HDA or UAD drivers because this codec is USB audio.
    Download latest (universal) drivers (6.3.9600.2277) HERE
    Or get official version from Asus HERE (4080)

    Script in non-English setup


    DDelo, I appreciate the automation offered by your script to identify parts of Realtek UAD driver's stack we can update.
    But your script doesn't work without modifications in non-English version of Windows or more specifically when using non-English version of dism.exe.
    A simple, but brittle, modification would be to add the option "/English" to each call to dism.exe in your script.
    But I would like to go further by eliminating the output hijacking of dism.exe completely from your script and by replacing them with equivalent powershell command (like the Get-WindowsDriver cmdlet). Is there any script repository where I could submit pull request or open an issue and propose my solution?
    Thank you again for your work.
