Anyone know if creative or any 3rd party group is making a vista driver for the creative Sound blaster live! 5.1 sound card?

This worked for me, though the sound is quite distorted at times. Download the driver for xp and extract it. If its not extractable, run the setup, and then find the files in the temp directory for your user profile.

Now go into the device manager, find the audio device with the missing drive, and install the xp drivers to that device. When you are done, you will get some basic sound working, although its usually quite distorted. You also may lose some stability by using these drivers.

This works and was tested on my Creative Labs Audigy card.

I actually cannot get my Live! to work at all, It recognized my mobo sound card right off though. So I can wait for the drivers, no prob.
