Problem Fixing:
If you have different problem on audio enhancers or APO Driver, apply the following fix first:
Run cmd as administrator, type:
Code:
FOR %1 IN (*.DLL) DO REGSVR32 /S %1
If you are running on Windows x64, type the above code first then the below code:
Code:

Download Dolby UWP Preset, follow readme.txt you will see some folder name lenovo which is lenovo preset.
If you are on 5.1 or 7.1 setup, DTS Audio and Viper4Windows will not work. Virtual Audio Cable make them working on both setup.

I read and did the instructions just like the guide. Nothing has changed at my place, what am I doing wrong? I do not understand this guide. How to do it? Could you give it step by step? Hardware ALC255

My problem is that I don't have Realtek drivers installed properly. My device manager still shows high definition device(Microsoft drive). I already tried to install Realtek with device manager but it shows a error (this device cannot be used(code 10)) if anyone could help me, I appreciate. (and I downloaded in the same site that you linked in a file) https://images.drivereasy.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/img_5812c1dcbba93.png it apears just like in that image, but with realtek high definition drivers.

Hello I use Astro a50 wireless via optical cable on my Asus Maximus Code IX. I have tried many different audio mods but I mainly want Dolby Digital Live. So many option to choose from what would be the best package or thing to use with the apo driver? For now Im going back to older modded drivers that seemed to work. But im looking for Dolby Digital Live via Optical and possible eq app like the Nahimic3 or Creative shoot id be happy with Realtek eq as long as DDL is working with windows spring creators update 1803.

Thank you. =)
EDIT: Not sure if I got it working But I uninstalled the apo driver + all software because I didn't not see DDL 5.1 as an option for optical out. So I used my old driver folder and dropped a .dll in it from a older mod that enables Digital Out DDL 5.1. I will test it later on Im super tired... Happy to see it labled I hear sound but when i hit test on one of them I heard 2 bells but the other test played 5 bells.. so Im not sure if i messed it up or if its working lol.

@alanfox2000 how do I make Nahimic recognize my Realtek chip? Also, I don't see any configuration for Nahimic provided with APO driver.

Okay, I just realized that I have an outdated APO.

Follow the guide here(use the official driver): https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...-live-and-dts-interactive.193148/post-3841135
Then install APO driver
And you need a config with Realtek Audio Effects and make sure Endpoint FX APO is {A29EB043-6CE2-4ee2-B38C-F58719E0D88F}

Thank you! I will Download Official drivers from realtek or from asus site? The end point is for the optical out I assume? I will play around with driver APO tomorrow on clean install of windows. Thank you for the help.

@alanfox2000

Thank you this seemed to work for me so far =D no screen shot needed its the same as i showed as last time but newer driver. I do hear popping in the audio but I dont mind. What would be a good eq app to use with this set up using the optical audio out. I stream to twitch so nothing to extreme but THANK YOU SO MUCH! Youtube is working as it should be and games are working.

@alanfox2000 after upgrading to 1.0.5 build of APO Driver, I can't seem to get Creative Sound Blaster X720 to work again, even though I have done every step correctly. It fails to detect the device. The few times it detects the device, it has no impact on sound whatsoever. What could be the problem?

Update: Installed the HDA_8432 drivers, and all is in order.

Delete ‪C:\Windows\System32\DTSAPOUI64.dll, install again
If error still popup, just click ignore and run cmd as admin -> type regsvr32 DTSAPOUI64.dll


Use the original Realtek driver (not modded) and read tutorial on customize multiple audio effects with FX Configurator
http://puresoftapps.blogspot.com/2018/05/customize-your-multiples-audio-effects.html
One of the example is DTS Audio + Sound BlasterX 720
Or just load W10_Custom_CT_Dolby_UWP_DTS_Render.ini for DTS Audio + Sound BlasterX 720 + Realtek Audio Effects + Dolby UWP


The install step has been written on APO Driver post(link)

hi alan, i tried to install APO driver on realtek HDA 8432 from station drivers on windows 10 pro rs4 1803 i got this error

Screenshot (1).png
