"removes the stereo mix capability of earlier releases"

April 29, 2011  |  By charles_cope

 |  Version: Realtek High Definition Audio Codec (Windows Vista / Windows 7 32-bit) 2.59

Pros

None over previous versions

Cons

Distorted playback sound on W7
No stereo mix capability - forget using Audacity or W7 Sound recorder. Something to do with American Recording Industry agreements. Waste of time, as there are hundreds of applications you can use, (eg Freecorder)

Summary

Don't bother - I had to roll back to the 2006 Vista version
