I downloaded it, unpacked it on my desktop. I have enabled the option F8 "Disable driver signature enforcement" Windows 7 X64. I attach a screenshot.
Does not work on Windows 7 , Audio Realtek High Definition Audio ALC269.
Refer to the following directories:
"%programdata%\Creative\SoftwareLock" and "%systemroot%\system32"
and see if files with .KGA extension are present (Example: CTA30CF234.kga, CTA200FF2D.kga).

Try opening Registry Editor (RegEdit), following the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" path and observing the Extract1 and Extract2 values. Re-run the commands contained in these keys, preferably as an administrator (open the CMD as an administrator and copy the commands contained in the keys cited and press ENTER).

Don't get me wrong, my name is Balázs so not for misunderstooding :)
There's only one problem: I use Google Translator because I do not speak English. I am Brazilian born and my native language is Portuguese. Excuse me, anything.

oh, i didn't know that, no problem, because I write (almost) perfectly without translating, just a few words seeing in the dictionary and that's all

and I speak English since 2012 and to 2015 I have never learned from a teacher, just came up with words and sentences

Alan!
Can you make also SoundAlive a bonus for your new mod or is it a Samsung manufacturing?

In my case, I formatted my computer and installed Windows 8.1. I installed this driver version (6.0.1.8199, the last one I posted) and then Sound Blaster and it worked fine. Regarding the executable KGAGen.exe, the antivirus reports it as Malware. And finally, for files with .KGA extension, I have introduced a self-extracting command using the 7-zip ORIGINAL executable (7zip.exe, command line), but in your case and in others, you may have Error occurred in the extraction for the SYSTEM32 (Access denied) folder.

latest available Realtek drivers DDL / DTS ready however DWORD method apply . This drivers flowing the original post on page 1 and concerned only to DDL & DTS-I or whatever is sported by your system.

http://sharemods.com/rfeggdz7pdxo/Realtek_HDA_6.0.1.8172_DDL_DTS_rdy.zip.html

This are patched drivers already by me so nothing to do else then download and after that you have to go through regular installation once finished you have to add one DWORD32 bit type in registry of Windows using regedit :

1. After installation, DONT RESTART when asked open Run, type in "regedit" without quotes. Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Audio". Add "DisableProtectedAudioDG" of DWORD (32bit value) type and set it to 1.
2. Restart normally.

NO TEST MODE NEEDED but you have update to latest Cumulative patch before IF you didn't already. Be sure to ALLOW driver installation when asked dont worry it is not a virus or something it is unsigned driver forced to install and WITHOUT TEST MODE .
Just finished my new PC build and used this method. I only got Dolby, but I'm ok with that. This thread has gotten off track with a lot of stuff besides Dolby and DTS, so I wanted to thank you for this :)

When I set it in the properties window to Dolby live, apply it and reopen the properties window it always resets. It also says it is used by some device when I change it. Anyone can help?

UuuuuuGh.....

For those of you using the dll and regedit method for just Dolby and DTS Default Formats through Realtek Optical, (and maybe even for those using the other mods), it seems that, after finally having the audio fixed for a while, it seems that Microsoft has gone a step further in the Insider Fast Ring build 16237 and re-enabled or fixed an extra security feature mentioned in the very first post (for those not using Test Mode) (Might be a fixed version of Protected AudioDG, instead of PUMA, but I'm not sure), and now, if you're set to Dolby or DTS, it resets back to 16bit 2ch on every reboot. .... :shadedshu: :banghead:

OK people who want here is one of the latest modified and Install ready driver , remeber you still have to do the DWORD entry in regedit and you have to ALLOW uncertified driver to install :
TEST MOD is NOT neceserry

http://sharemods.com/ct89upig9f92/realtek_hda_8059_dolbyHPhonesDTSrdy.rar.html

1. After installation, open Run, type in "regedit" without quotes. Go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Audio". Add "DisableProtectedAudioDG" of DWORD (32bit value) type and set it to 1.
2. Restart normally.

good luck !

credits also goes to PHYTO and his patcher :)
I installed this. I have ddl and dts in the Realtek control panel and in windows but when try to change it to ddl it all freezes and I need to end the process. I have the alc1220a chipset.

Ok, I am getting confused, before I updated my PC with the Windows Creator Update everything was working fine for the most part, now that I updated I have tried all of these modified drivers trying to get one to work but none of them work like they should. On the advanced tab on my realtek digital output I am able to select Dolby Digital Live (5.1 Surround) but when I test I only hear two different sounds, left and right when I should hear all 6 sounds like I have before I updated also when I go to the levels tab and select the balance and turn the first two balance channels all the way down I can hear nothing at all but before I could hear sound coming from the other channels which is another indication that my 5.1 is not working properly. I am not entirely sure what I am doing wrong but ill give my current setup so maybe someone can try to help me and anyone else having this issue.

MB: Asus Maximus Hero VII
OS: Windows 10 Version 1703 Build 15063.483
Headset: Astro A50 (gen 1)
I am using the optical output from the back of my motherboard directly to my a50 wireless receiver.

The Optical test sound has been 2ch only for a while now. Test it on something else.

Try the simplified version on Pg 37, if you haven't already.
