Is Nahamic even as good as Dolby is in terms of sound quality for surround sound?
Well can't argue that but at least it works reliably. For example, Dolby wasn't working for my Bluetooth headset at the beginning but all of a sudden it's working now. Not sure if it'll continue to work or just stop like the way it started.

Is anyone going to help me find out why all Dolby's sound modes are all quiet expect for Personalize?
It wasn't like this before, when I used 2.7.7 APO driver, the sound was loud enough regardless.
I don't know why the sound volume is very low on all the modes and the same volume expect for Personalize preset, I can only hear the sound difference on this mode and also if i change equalizer settings to max I get loud sound. If someone can help me find out if there's a way to make it sound louder for each mode then that would be great.

The sound modes weren't this quiet before. Use to be all of them were loud.

My speaker configuration is 5.1 with DAPv251-VLLDP120 preset

APO driver 2.7.7 sounds louder than APO Driver 2.8.7, I don't know why 2.8.7 isn't louder or better.

Hi, I am very interested in this tool. However, Kaspersky detects the file as trojan, and virustotal.com detects it 5 antivirus.

Is the file safe?

Best regards

Antivirus is crap. They detect using silly signatures that flags any patchers as malware.
The patcher present in the software is here for unlocking Realtek driver DDL/DTS interactive.
Now it is yours to decide.

Hello,

I use Dolby Atmos Speaker System for Gaming, without auto mode to switch auto change sound mode.
I would like "Music" mode all time, but when I call on Microsoft Teams, there is auto switch to "Voice" mode.



How can I disable this bug?

my headphones are the Beats Pro Over-Ear Headphones - Black

Before installing apo driver use the DJ Urko Realtek HDA Compiler Alan Finote driver

when I connected them it detected them in dolby, uninstall this version because it contains several equalizers and I'm only interested in dolby

so install apo driver and if you notice the audio quality

when my beats are connected I turn the dolby on and off and if you notice the sound change and I like it

but I can't make the headphones section work where I can select
default
large
medium
small

in apo that option does not work and in DJ Urko Realtek HDA Compiler Alan Finote it works

What did I do wrong? I followed the instructions perfectly

and dolby I have it installed on my laptop

So on what driver are you applying the APO Driver?
Stock MSFT driver or stock Realtek Driver?

So at first I thought that APO Driver 2.8.9 was the issue but turns out that during my testing that when I installed APO Driver 2.8.8 and install dolby drivers and dragged dolby dlls of 3.20900.911.0 version into the dolbyaposvc folder and rebooted dolby service, the service wouldn't be running, it goes straight to Stopped.

But 2.8.8 dolby service was working before 3.20900.911.0 dlls in the main folder.

So I have come to a conclusion that the issue with dlls of 2.8.9(3.20900.911.0)

I've been looking for 2.7.7!
Can you please attach? :)

It is a Trojan worm. Let's not pretend.
The first configurator (v1) had a autohotkey script that renders an overlay. So the AlanFittFox2000 essentially sees what you do on your PC, but in Chinese lol.

Have you tried APO driver 2.9.0 and if so did you get it to work?

@alanfox2000 how are you an audio engineer when your APO driver still suffers from the same legacy issue almost each new update.

Whenever you clean install APO driver 2.8.9 and APO driver 2.9.0 dolby atmos. You put the right presets and start the service and then immediately goes to straight to stopped. It doesn't stay running.

Hello guys, been using the APO drivers for about 2 years now but felt I'd be good an update. I tried to uninstall them correctly through the Windows 10 Apps&Features but when l I try to install the new ones, I got this prompt "There's another version of this product installed. The installation can't continue."
Tried to reinstall the Realtek sound, but the problem persists.

Is there any registry entry I need to delete or anything to fix this?

Appreciate any help!

Alright, I finally managed to solve this problem!

Thanks to @Maximino 's post:
Thanks for the suggestions, I solved the problem!

For those interested, I imported the install registry entry taken from another PC.
[That was mandatory as I had no registry entry, but I the rest of the files. I guess I never uninstalled the APO driver but for some reason the registry entry disappeared after many Windows patches.]
Then I used BCU to both "manually" and "Msi Exe" uninstall the Apo Driver (I added the registry entry 2 times, manual uninstall wasn't enough).
That was the only way, all the other programs/tries failed.

Here's the reg file for those who encounter the same problem and don't have a second PC (just create a .reg file)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\APO Driver 2.8.5]
"DisplayName"="APO Driver"
"Contact"=""
"UninstallPath"="C:\\ProgramData\\Caphyon\\Advanced Installer\\{DD1A2E9F-9E95-4E5E-8AEF-19D1F40843AC}\\apo_driver_setup_x64.exe /i {DD1A2E9F-9E95-4E5E-8AEF-19D1F40843AC} AI_UNINSTALLER_CTP=1"

"EstimatedSize"=dword:00005847

"VersionMajor"=dword:00000002
I have been able to uninstall all the remaining APO drivers using BCU (not needing the reg entry he posted) and then install the updated ones.
Hope this helps anyone experiencing this same issue.

Cheers!

I followed the methods in installation and tried installing from 2.88 - 2.9 but for some reason DaxService does not seem to install at all :/
Anyone got any suggestions on what I should do? I installed the prereq dependencies as before as well
