Did you patch the DLLs?

There's the GenKG or something .exe which has a description how to patch it inside.
You meant this post here? https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/...s-work-on-windows.244309/page-25#post-3875460

I have no problem activating the SB x-fi II that came along with original motherboard CD. The original one has shortcut icon that when you double click on it, it will auto register the software.

So by putting the KGA on the above post to "ProgramData->Creative->Softwarelock" folder would get all the effects back?

I'm confuse.

Hello everyone. i have an MSI Ge62VR with 6.0.1.8328 Realtek drivers. Ii downloaded apo drivers 2.3.6 and dolby digital plus flex 3, then installed dolby home theater with apo/fx configurator/product config tool. I rebooted the system, but now dolby digital plus won't open and the dolby tab in sound settings says "encountered problems with registry key permissions". The device comes with nahimic sound suite, but it is uninstalled. What should i do? Thanks.

I solved the problem installing version 7.6.5.1 of Dolby digital plus home theater, now everything works :)

Idk if it is cracked on my PC, I don't find any try trial button on Dolby Access.
My PC don't have installed Dolby Access.
I copy all the DLL files to C:\Windows (remember backup all the Dll)
Reboot
Now there should be a Dolby Atmos for Headphones options, select and apply. (when you select, no popup to M$ store)
Install Dolby Access 2.4.366.0 appx file
Launch Dolby Access and the app tell you to restart PC
Reboot
Launch Dolby Access to see if there any try button
Now, you can restore the original dll

DLL: https://drop.me/M5reyy

However, I tested on virtual machine, the trial button still these.

What I doing:

1. Install Visual C++ and .Net For Windows 10, install .Net and Visual C++ Appx.

2. Install APO Driver. Choose: FX configurator 2.0.1.8 and Dolby PCEE4 7.2.8000.17 driver.

3. Install DolbyHomeTheater (from Audio\sound enhancerts). Use DolbyHomeTheater.reg ?

4. Install driver from gitHub: Realtek High Definition Audio 6.0.1.8606 WHQL. Version FF00 and FF10 not differense. Endpoint result down.

5. Open FX Configurator from start menu, select the endpoint: [Active] speakers Realtek HD audio (analog). May be choose (HDMI)? Not. Endpoint result down.

6. Use "Backup" button under "Endpoint Registry" section. Follow the audio enhancer installation instruction.

7. Use "Product Config Tool" button under "Tool" section. Select one of the products from drop down list: Dolby home theater v4. See in window:

1. Is that github driver normal HDA driver, or an UAD driver? APO driver works on HDA driver.
2. Your point 4; "Endpoint result down"; what does that mean? Audio does not play?
3. Where did you find Dolby digital plus? Referring to last line.

Today, I tested it again on Virtual Machine. Dll replaced and start dolby access app. When the Dolby Access start, Dolby Atmos for Headphones will be found spatial sound format. However, I right click the bottom right speaker icon, Dolby Atmos for Headphones is showed below "Try & Buy from store" on context menu.
And my PC show Dolby Atmos for Headphones is above "Try & buy" on context menu.

Then,
I remember I have installed Dolby Atmos Speaker System before I installed dolby access.
I tested VM again.
Install Dolby Atmos Speaker System. After that, login to M$ store in order to download & install Dolby Access.

Screenshot on VM

I remember these ad (Buy Dolby Atmos for Headphones) show on Dolby Audio




Here is the Notice from Dolby Atmos Speaker System. It said don't work on licensed devices.

My PC has been installed Dolby Atmos Speaker System so my devices get licensed. My assumption is Dolby Atmos for Headphones for free on Dolby Atmos licensed devices.
Dolby Atmos Speaker System install?

Why don't you just not use Dolby Digital Plus?

My motherboard support DolbyHTv4. In Win 7 was. DolbyHTv4 programm has more settings, intelligent equalizer and others. Why does not work? What I doing uncorrect?

And not understand GitHub. New release (8612_FF0C_FF00_FF01_FF03_FF04_FF06_FF10_PG468_Win10_RS2_RS3_RS4_RS5_Win7_WHQL) has many drivers. What will choose?

Found where.

I had to reinstall Windows 10. Look at post #1,194
The 1,194th post just said that you had an error message.

I thought that you found a bug in the installer. Expected some excellent detective work.
Turns out, reinstalling Windows also removes loads of problems.:laugh:

I said I got the problem when unistalling/installing Apo driver. But no one wanted to help, I went with the last resort and reinstalled Windows 10
