How to Install Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy Downloaded Drivers

Just as with my Sound Blaster Live! I’ve now run into the issue of not being able to install the Sound Blaster web drivers. This time, it’s for a customer, and it’s an Audigy.
Not only that, but I had to use DriverGuide to get the stupid pack. Creative Labs doesn’t even offer a non-upgrade driver pack from their website!! Creative Labs, you officially suck now. I have always bought your products in the past, but now that your customer service sucks this much, I won’t be buying anything from you again.
That said, you can actually install the drivers that you download, but you’ve got to be tricky.
Here’s how to force the Creative Labs Audigy 2 downloaded drivers to install:
You will need to download WinZip or WinRar (depending on the file type you download from DriverGuide) and then open the Audigy driver pack with it. Extract its entire contents into c:\temp or somewhere similar.
Following that, go to the device manager and double click the “PCI Audio Device” item. Click on the Update Driver button, and browse to the directory where you extracted the Audigy driver pack’s contents. Go through those misc. steps, and all should be well.
