    For Windows 10, this is not correct. For example for Realtek drivers, .CAB files MUST be extracted to it's own folder and then installed through "Device Manager->Update Driver Software..." and then selecting the extracted .CAB folder. This will also install the Realtek Audio Manager automatically(confirmed this).

    DISM cannot install these Realtek .CAB files, no matter what you try to do.
    I tried that, but an error always occur while it's installing. How are you gonna install your realtek Audio default from win10 if it doesn't install properly?

    You are not helping. This thread is for possible solutions for the problem.

    OK so heres the easiest way i found to install them on windows the cab file obviously....extract it with winrar or 7z or whatever program you prefer i use winrar cuz its simple

    go to your taskbar at the bottom of the screen somewhere on there hopefully you will see a speaker icon right click on it as seen below highlight playback devices also seen below

    click on the driver tab click update then click browse my computer then u will see another window that you can find where you downloaded and extracted the cab file choose that folder (by the way in windows 10 typically its saved under c: then users then whatever your user name is then look for a blue arrow that says downloads)

    When I right click on a .cab file, I don't have an option for install as shown here.

    Hello Nick, :)

    The "Install" context menu item is not there by default. It'll need to be added first.

    This is for Windows Update KB type .cab files though.

    Hi Sean

    I followed the instructions and merged the .reg file but there is still no install option.

    Odd. I just tested on my system to see if something may have changed, but it still works for me.

    Double check to see if you have the registry entries below added from the .reg file in step 2 below.

    Seems it didn't take, I only have HasLUAShield. Do you need to run the reg file as admin?
