Thread: Windows 7 won't install any Audigy 2 ZS drivers

    Windows 7 won't install any Audigy 2 ZS drivers6

    I did a clean install of Windows 7 and noticed right away, that the drivers for my Audigy 2 ZS didn't get installed. Here is the error I was given via device manager / properties for card:

    The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
    This operation requires an interacti've window station.

    Drivers I've tried:

    • From Windows Update, dated October 4, 2008<
    • Creative's website, Driver version?2.8.00, dated July 3 2009
    • Creative's website, Beta driver version 2.8.00, dated Oct 2009
    • Creative's website, Vista driver 2.2.0002, dated March 6, 2007
    • danielk's audigy support pack 3.5
    When I tried the Creative executables and danielk's support pack, I do not get any errors during any parts of the install(s).

    Windows Updates says the install failed with unknown reason. When I attempt to "update driver" through device manager, it says it finds the driver but it gives me the same error as mentioned?above: This operation requires an interactive window station.


    What else can I try? I've also done an "upgrade" install of Windows 7 on top of the clean install (out of desperation). At this point, I feel like reloading my XP imaged install,?so I can have working audio again.

    So, please, if there is something I can try, then please help. Is there a way to do a "logged" install and send it to someone at Creative?

    Thanks for your time

    Hey, I'm in the same boat. I'm trying to figure this out for the life of me. So far all I've found is this:

    So, just to update everyone on my situation. I think my issue was caused by the migration tool, Windows Easy Transfer.

    I formatted the partition the partition that Windows 7 was installed on, and did a fresh reinstall. Upon first boot of the new reinstall, the audio drivers were still not installed. I then immediately tried to "update drivers" via device manager and Windows installed the latest beta drivers from October , 2009 with no errors.

    Is there any reason why the install won't install the drivers on its own? Did it not ship with Audigy 2 ZS drivers?
