It starts in tray bar, but configuration window won't open. I'm gonna try newer version I found on the Internet.

EDIT: Nope, neither them work. Bummer.
EDIT2: This one work: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/misc/audio/Realtek_Audio_Win7-81-10_V6017629_Sonic_2216.zip?_ga=1.1...

Unfortunately, there is only one Realtek/Sonic Suite driver under the RVE10 and it doesn't work

Easy enough to fix guys 🙂

Install drivers from CD or motherboard site. Make sure SSII is also installed and working, if not, install manually from folder within the driver package.

Download latest realtek driver set from below:

http://www.tenforums.com/drivers-hardware/5993-latest-realtek-hd-audio-driver-version.html

Extract this set, but DO NOT run setup or install!

Go to Device manager and right click on Realtek High Definintion Audio, under Sound, video and game controllers. Choose 'update driver software', then option 'browse my computer for driver software'.

Select the folder you extracted latest driver set to, and let it update drivers. Voila! You now have latest drivers and SSII should still work fine 😉

All good here on 1607 and Hero Alpha board.

Doesn't work. SS2 just doesn't work with the anniversary update:

At least not on my Hero VIII with everything updated..
It opens up in the system tray but I get these errors in event viewer every time I try to open up SS2.

I saw Asus released a new audio driver package yesterday. Somebody tried this new one?

I FINALLY got it to work! Get this driver: http://forums.laptopvideo2go.com/topic/24364-latest-realtek-audio-codecs/?page=9#comment-149600 and install SS2 from one of the other packages. I tried 2 different SS2 versions and they both work now!

Anything newer than 2.2.1601 still doesn't work.

Although I got it working now, I have noticed that no settings in Sonic Studio 2 have any effect on W10 UWP apps. They completely bypass SS2. I tested with Netflix and tried Spotify in Edge.
If I use Spotify in Chrome it works fine, and listening to music in AIMP3 also works fine. So apparently UWP apps somehow bypass the normal audio route in Windows 10. However, Edge in Win10 uses Dolby, and I would rather have Dolby than Realteks poor version of surround.

Hey guys, so I'm relatively new to these forums but it's clear this is an issue effecting many Z170 users. Do ASUS generally reply to acknowledge they are working on something and aware of the issue or do we just wait and hope?
