    "Horrible drivers won't install normally, here's a fix:"

    July 11, 2005  |   By iincompetent

    Pros

    They work if you're lucky. I had to:

    Run the install, which then fails.

    Go into Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > Sound Video and Game Controllers > Properties tab for my sound card > Driver > Update Driver ...

    Cons

    Then 'Install from a specific location' > 'Don't Search I will choose the driver to install' > 'Have Disk'

    Then point windows to driver file that the failed install unzipped itself to, this is C:\WINDOWS\Temp\CRF000\Drivers\WDM\wdma_emu.inf

    The drivers will then hopefully install properly.

    Accurately told and thanks for the tip. I have the new "Vista" version with the same problem. Imagine that!
