Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2/Audigy 2 ZS Driver (Windows 98SE/Me/2000/XP)
Full user review
"**ATTENTION** Do not install"
None - doesn't work.
The installation of this driver fails with errors. For some strange reason, despite the fact that NUMEROUS other people posted this same conclusion, I charged ahead with installation. And, guess what, it doesn't work.
The Creative website has NEWER and (somewhat) FIXED drivers. Don't use this. Shame on CNET for not removing this post/download LONG AGO. Why is this still here? It doesn't work, its out-dated, and its a pain. Go to Creative, BUT be warned: installing the drivers there isn't exactly problem-free either. Creative can't seem to get a simple driver update program right. Very disappointing, for a company that has (had?) such a great reputation. During install, it locks up your system after the mandatory reboot. I did the CTL-ALT-DEL combo, and in the task manager, found half a dozen "Setup.exe" programs running. I randomly chose and stopped one, and that got me to my desktop. Still don't know if my drivers were updated properly. I have a horrible feeling I need to do a complete wipe and reinstall of my OS and software, just to fix whatever just happened to my system. Sloppy, very sloppy, Creative. Wish you were the company you used to be.
