Vista can't be this bad. I installed my software and drivers for my SB X-Fi Xtreme sound card. And I can't get it to work. I've installed and reinstalled twice. When I try to open Audio Console it says, "Audio device supported by this application is not detected. This application will exit." When I try to open Console Launcher, it says, ""Audio device supported by this application is not detected. Do you want to select another audio device now?" When I click "Yes," it says, "The Creative Audio Device Selection module cannot be launched. The module may be missing from your system. You may need to re-install your application." WTF?! I've installed twice ... including getting all the updates. Also, I can't even ****ING install Direct X9 or 10 ... doesn't it come preloaded with Vista? I can't even ****ing play C&C 3 because DX9 and 10 go into "Not Responding" upon installation. I'm real pissed. I just got this laptop last night and did a complete clean install. I did everything right.
