Sonic Studio won't open in WIndows 10 v1607

Terepin
Level 8
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...

Bummer, that means the issue is going to be config or board dependent then. I went back and re-read this thread from page one and it looks like Maximus VIII Hero Alpha users are the ones reporting it works fine. I didn't even see what board you have Terepin and you have no system specs posted. Also, as a friendly tip: if you actually have this issue and want it fixed, when the forum admin asks what version numbers you have tried ((as Bahz did over a week ago) just respond. He can get that info to the software team.

Hopefully ASUS can get a patch around for those of you that have this issue.


I am running Maximus VIII Hero Alpha Rev. 1.XX, and having the same issue

I have Windows 10 with 1607, 14393.67, Sonic 2 is working fine, finally, and thanks to God, I am able to go in. Before, I was not. I noticed Windows was updated. People had troubles with Cam. I think the 67 fixed that issue and ours definitely. I did not need to reinstall Windows. I was not looking forward to that.

i have a Asus Hero Alpha and i am having the problem also. none of the steps listed have worked for me. i am not going to reload windows that isn't a reasonable fix to me. hope windows or asus release a fix soon

Same issue here on Ranger VIII. Newest updates of Win10 installed and SS2 will not open from tray/desktop no matter which version I install.

ASUS please look into this, as we are locked out of some of the main features on our motherboards.

Alright so i also reinstalled windows. then i wanted to install the new audio drivers from Realtek and sonic studio.
The installer first had to delete the previous ones and restart.
Then it just wouldn't install for some reason and when you try again it will again deinstall previous version.
(I found out that when connected to internet Windows will automatically install the drivers very fast when you reboot.

My solution:
Just disable internet/Wi-Fi run the installer ( it will reboot etc. and it's done.)


(EDIT) Also:
When downloading the .zip before unzipping. Right mouseclick and DESELECT the blocker (right bottom corner)
(for some weird reason ASUS protects all their files) Then unzip. and run as administrator.
and also do the above.


Hope it helps!

^^ all of which I posted to do a few pages back ^^

sadly this still didn't work for me.

Honestly at this point I would be much happier if the audio on my Maximus VIII Hero came with stock realtek drivers without this "Supreme FX" Sonic suite garbage. Not only is it a mediocre quality software that cannot even be used when running up-to-date OS & driver... it also causes issues with mouse lag/skipping under high CPU load. At least with my high pooling rate mouse. Just try running realbench stress test and move your mouse around with and without sonic suite running in the background. I ended up just using the the realtek driver that gets intalled by windows update. Can't run sonic suite anyway, but this way my mouse at least works normally. Too bad there is no getting rid of the stupid ROG "Supreme FX" skin in the realtek audio manager.

Seem to be a general issue with the Asus software. I like the board HW wise. The UEFI features are nice, though the stability and quality of it could be improved. The quality of the bundled software however is just total garbage. And in the case of Realtek driver, there is not even a way to "opt out", no matter where you get your realtek driver from.

I also liked the old style of Realtek drivers, everything embedded into one piece of software and good amount of settings to work with.

My ROCCAT drivers stopped working with either the new Windows update or SS...not sure which, haven't reinstalled the ROCCAT drivers since my last clean install...

I couldn't agree more. I asked for this over 8 months a go. As always with Asus, it was ignored entirely. I think they're the only ones who believe their software is well written - it's worse than Corsair's 'Link' software.

And I say that as a developer (python).
