THANKS!Does creative have a 64 bit win 7 driver? If not you can probably use the vista driver if you install in the compatibility mode. Yes, they have Win 7 64 bit driver. But when I run the setup they said to me, something like 'we unable to detect a sound card bla bla bla.' I don't think the Audigy 2 (in PCI slot) works in Win7, at least not x64. A year ago when I first installed Win7 Pro x64 I had planned to use my Creative Audigy 2 card (PCI) in my new ASUS P5Q3 board.
First, I disabled the 'high definition audio' in the BIOS of the board (for the onboard Realtek sound chip). But like you I was unable to get the Creative Audigy 2 card to either get recognized by the Win7 installer or have the driver install properly. Fortunately, I had a Creative X-Fi Titanium (PCI-e x1) sound card in my other machine which was still running WinXP Pro x32, and which I really didn't care about. I'd actually planned to use the optical digital audio connector on that X-Fi card but never really made use of it. Turns out it was for 'output only' and not for 'input' as I thought. That other machine had a SuperMicro C2SBX board in it, which also had Realtek onboard sound. So I removed the Create X-Fi card from the PCI-e slot, enabled the Realtek onboard sound, installed the Realtek HD Audio Codec driver on that machine, and was off and running (still under WinXP Pro x86).
Then I removed the Audigy 2 (PCI) card from the ASUS P5Q3 machine I was getting going with Win7 Pro x64, installed the X-Fi (PCI-e x1) card, and once again installed Win7 x64 from scratch. Bingo, presto! Card recognized perfectly by Win7, and up-to-date driver software obtained from Creative's sight. I think you may just have to give up on that legacy Audigy 2 card in your Win7 x64 machine. Go with an X-Fi Titanium (or other variant). They're not expensive and you won't be disappointed.
