    Unable to install Realtek HD Audio driver (Error Code: 0x00000002)

    My motherboard is ASUS P8P67-M Pro. The manufacturer doesn't mention any drivers for Windows 10 x64 on their website as you can see here: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8...Desk_Download/
    I tried to use Windows 8.1 x64 drivers, Windows 8 x64 drivers and Windows 7 x64 drivers. None of them worked. I even tried to download drivers directly from Realtek website, it didn't work as well.
    I am pretty sure the drivers should be fine and work, but I think there is a problem with my operating system. I remember in the past I tried to install printer drivers and I had issues as well (while it worked fine on another PC, only this PC had issues installing the driver) and I also have problem installing the new feature update (Windows 1703), it always ends up with an error, so I can't update to this version as well.

    I don't know what to do and I was thinking about re-installing windows, but it is very time consuming for me and I prefer a short solution to resolve this.

    Is there any chance someone has any idea how to resolve this problem?

    Thank you

    Another way to install a cab file (Realtek Audio driver as example)

    • Extract the cab file to a directory using winrar or other extraction tool (create a new directory)
    • Open the Device Manager in admin mode (Win+R devmgmt.msc)
    • Select the device and Click "Update Driver Software..."

    • Browse and select the folder where you have extracted the cab

    • And install the driver !

    This is the easiest way i found
    I followed the instructions and I receive the following error

    What should I do in this case? the DISM through the command line doesn't work as well
