    1) Due to the install script. System drive, path spaces etc.

    2) Yes, it will use ESS SABRE DAC.

    3) Nope, it's fine. "edevmon.sys" is ESET's filter driver.

    1) Thanks for the reply. Does it also means ESS SABRE DAC is independent from Realtek Audio driver?
    2) Since my laptop has previous version, can I just run the this new Realtek UAD 8642 to install?​

    Thank j95 for the great contribution again!

    Because I have to use Dolby Digital Live and DTS interactive for re-mixing the 5.1 channels and output the signals via SPDIF(optical), I must stick to HDA drivers.

    I wonder if there is any music/sound quality difference between 6.0.1.8581 and 6.0.1.8454? I still remember that j95 highly recommended version 6.0.1.8454 due to its sound quality.

    Hello @j95 ,

    I'd once tried out your Clevo modded audio drivers and it worked fine. Recently, I re-installed my Windows and downloaded the latest version of your mod (Realtek UAD 8562) and followed ALL the necessary steps and installed everything. However, the Realtek Audio Console says "Can not connect to RPC service". Sound Blaster Connect seems to work just fine, and audio is fine as well. Its just the Audio Console that's causing me problem.
    I will mention that the Audio Console worked earlier and showed the equalizer and everything. But only once, it hasn't worked ever since I tried updating to your newer driver posts. Only once did everything work. Ever since I've been using whatever driver Windows installs which did work fine until my Windows re-install and I figured I'd give this another go but I need the EQ and some more settings that your mod provides.

    I'd be very grateful for your insight on this. (My specs are in my signature)

    Keep 8454 for the time being...8581 'standard' without DDL/DTS.

    You must fully uninstall previous drivers, especially if you're switching to UAD drivers...incl. Creative connect service, SBC (win32.) Once you're done, run DDU to delete leftovers "Realtek Audio"

    Uninstall Realtek Audio Console and then re-install it from here

    Still nothing. Here's what I did in order-
    - Uninstall Realtek High Definition Audio Driver from Programs & Features (Control Panel)
    - Uninstall SBC and RAC UWP apps from the Start Menu list
    - Deleted UWP.Service and Realtek audio service using Autoruns64 (admin)
    - Rebooted to Safe Mode, ran DDU, chose Audio and Realtek (WIP) and Clean and Restart
    - After reboot, Shift+Restart, chose Disable Driver Signature Enforcement
    - After reboot, disable AV and ran your setup from desktop as Admin
    - Proceeded as normal and chose 4x Install Driver Software Anyway, I'll reboot later, SBC and RAC installed.
    - Final reboot.

    Dunno what is wrong but I think that's all the necessary steps.

    Also one more thing of note, in the Realtek driver whenever I click on the Sound icon in the taskbar it only shows "Speakers" even though I have headphones plugged in. Whenever I used the Windows audio driver it distinctly showed two options- Speakers and Headphones that I could switch between. And if I plug or unplug my headphones the volume changed to what I set for either of them (20% for headphones and 70% for the speakers). The Realtek drivers don't have this feature or is it something that doesn't come with it?

    P.S. Can I have the 8454 setup since everyone is praising it? Here's hoping it does install successfully.

    So installing Realtek Audio console from MS store didn't solve the issue? Then anti-virus messing with the installation process or even "Secure Boot" enabled...also try uninstalling Steam audio drivers/devices, incl. "Audio inputs and outputs" under device manager before installing Realtek UAD.

    Device manager -> “Realtek(R) Audio” properties -> Events -> scroll down to the latest event and then post results.
