when this error show, open services manger. Find UWPService and start it manually. Click Retry.

Have tried that, it says error 1053. :( Cant even google fix for it.
With 1.0.6 it says it cant start Dolby DAX API Service and with 1.0.7 (and others 5,4 etc.) it says it cant start UPWservice.

I`ve read the post in the page puresoftapps.com: Here i leave the description in the post.

Sound Blaster Connect UWP App (Sound BlasterX 720°)
Keygen-GenKGA3 Only unlock Sound BlasterX 720° on Sound Blaster Connect UWP App


Sound BlasterX 360° and Sound blaster Cinema 5 (Release from 2018) still cannot unlock, please comment below if you find a way to unlock them

If you have ASROCK Fatal1ty H370 or Sound Blaster Cinema 5 certified pc, please share kga file C:\ProgramData\Creative\SoftwareLock for unlock Cinema 5 on other PC

For Windows 10 x86 x64 only.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, from my personal experience for more than 10 years with the creative consoles, I can tell you that it is not about whether it is an Asrock, MSI, Asus, or any other brand of motherboard; what I do know is that it can be a possibility that the system is not generating some or some files as well as .kga, as well as some .dat when the installation is done. This is why the Sound Blaster Cinema 5 is not fully activated.

And yes, it is quite true that if you find any user that is using this console, maybe s/he can provide them, or the resulting files to complete the functions of the SBC5.

Greetings,

Màthair.

YOU SHOULD MY METHODS, WHICH I ANSWERED, TRY IT, WHY ARE NOT TRYING MY METHODS,
>Try to change UAC user account control & set it to lowest setting(not recommended one) try this don't worry about warnings, don't forget to restart windows
I have UAC disabled.
>open APO APP properties click on security tab & allow all permissions on all users, like admin, authenticated users, trusted installers, your PC name( means your name) apply these full control permissions to APO app
>Place APO APP in c drive, execute it with admin privilages
Did this.
>iobit uninstaller completely removes all driver related files try it, reboot PC, do fresh installation with admin rights
>Try driver cleaning tool & registries removing .reg file, you can find them in alanfox2000's realtek hda 8403 driver with Dolby atmos sound system + SBX 720 +DTS, it should be in anyone of alanfox's post's, file is stored on mediafire
nah, windows just cant start some services, those are just some extra steps
>Download APO DRIVER Portable version from puresoftapps.com, link is on alanfox's profile posts doesn't need to install APO app
cant find portable version, anyway I need somehow to run that needed service
>Reboot is required for all methods to get APO driver work
Did several times.
>Give all this methods a try, anyone method could work, good luck friend
thank you pal

@OMER @hovnonium .........I can read all of your deleted posts..... both of you need a 7 day break from this thread, come back then and 1) learn how to post maturely 2) Stop making demands on other members 3) Stop posting rubbish 4) Stop personal insults 5) Stop posting in Upper case.... it is considered to be shouting..................... neither of you are guilty of all of these things BUT this is not your private chatroom, you are derailing the thread.

Im sure in this place, some people are disgusting, but it is not anyone's fault, since many do their part by sharing and teaching others; more to my way of seeing it, I think that maybe they should create more extensive tutorials / videos and covering more the range of their possibilities of use in the software programs that are provided here to the users.

For example: You should make a tutorial about all the current configurations of the APO Driver (with its configs and possible combinations among the applications when used with this program).

Also about the VAC (Virtual Audio Cable), I think that this program also (to me personally, I still do not understand it) so that users as well as the contributors of the programs do not have to waste time answering the questions and vicissitudes of the users. I honestly believe that they will also be more relaxed and will be able to spend their time doing and creating new things (for example).

I am looking for people who use Sound Blaster Cinema 5, asking people to use the different brands of motherboards to which this third-party software is supplied for their use and enjoyment.

And I will continue in it, greetings to all.

Attentively,

Màthair.

-from my experience with certain Creative SB apps, only a few certain KGA license files are required and many others are not necessary [and may cause other Creative apps to not recognize onboard Realtek audio devices].

want to run the Creative SBConnect desktop app as SBX360?
creative-sbconnect-as-sbx360.png


have only this KGA file present in SoftwareLock folder (and remove all other KGA files)

KGAfile-for-CreativeSBX360.png




AND to run Creative SBConnect desktop app as "SBX720"

creative-sbconnect-as-sbx720.png


only THIS KGA license file is required in SoftwareLock folder (other KGA files are not necessary):

KGAfile-for-CreativeSBX720.png


I did not test these KGA files on the Creative SBConnect UWP apps, only the desktop version of SBConnect.

I have only FEW kga license files present so that I run specific Creative apps only (and improve detection rate for onboard Realtek audio).

For Creative SBCinema 5, only ONE specific KGA file is needed in the SoftwareLock folder and other KGA files need to be moved out of there; it may need a newer or a specific file.

Virtual Audio Cable by Eugene V. Muzychenko have audio delay issue
use VB-CABLE Virtual Audio Cable
you have to set 2ch format to make V4W work on VAC
Okay I installed VB-Cable
And have it set with 2ch

Can i use any audio format hz , like 44100hz 48000hz, 96000hz,19200hz?

I'm not sure if viper4windows is working, I have sound but don't know if the high quality preset is working or not. I don't think I hear any effect.

Thanks for your work! It's working perfectly on Win10 x64 1803(build), Can you use two sound enhancers at once though?

One more request, how do i make Bonglovi DPS work with APO driver? There's no .ini and .reg file.

My aim is to have best sound with Headphones!

set Bonglovi DPS as default playback devices on sound properties, set output to Realtek High Definition Audio on Bonglovi DPS

Simultaneous use of two sound enhancers is not possible. It will distort the sound quality. Each software has different properties. It suits each category. You can listen to each one and select the appropriate content for them.

Should not be associated with Bongiovi. When the Bongiovi driver turns on, it restricts the volume of other software audio. The purpose of Bongiovi is to make their sound louder when they turn on the B key and make the sound smaller when Bongiovi is turned off.
