Cannot Re-install Voicemeeter !?

Post by Vincent Burel »

First of all, Voicemeeter does not need to be removed in case of problem.
Voicemeeter is a simple Application endowed with an audio device driver, if you don’t use it , there is no way to get trouble.
There is also NO REASON to reset computer or make a restoring point.
All is a question of audio configuration (basically given in windows Control Panel / Sound Dialog Box).

Voicemeeter is installed in your system disk: C:\Program Files (x86)\VB\Voicemeeter directory
While it's virtual I/O are installed in system directory like other audio driver.

if you made a desinstallation without REBOOT, re-installing Voicemeeter could not work anymore.

If Voicemeeter Setup Program does not propose you to install, it’s because virtual audio device (or part of them) are still installed or not completely de-installed. You need to de-install Voicemeeter Virtual Audio Driver manually by the Windows Procedure:

(1)- Go in system / device manager
(2)- Find any reference to Voicemeeter Audio Device and click on it to de-install it.
(3)- Check first in Sound Vido Game controller section, then afer check in audio inputs and outpus section.
(4)- Reboot after each operation.

REM: Start by uninstalling multimedia drivers (not audio I/O)
When the multimedia driver is not present anymore,
You might uninstall remaining Voicemeeter audio i/o if any
Reboot and Repeat the operation until having no more Voicemeeter audio component on your system.

if Voicemeeter Installer cannot finish its process (installation should be done in less than 3 minutes)
you can go in Voicemeeter directory (C: \Program Files (x86)\ VB \ Voicemeeter) and
try to use VBCABLE_Setup programs to install or remove Voicemeeter virtual audio device (REBOOT after each operation).

if nothing works and you still can't install Voicemeeter again
as last option, consider making a system roll back (sytem restore)... from a recent point (some days)
(if your system restore is activated of course).

What is system restore?

So I did all of this and since the Win 10 update, now when I talk into my microphone it sounds like I just inhaled a balloon full of helium. I can't figure out a way to get it to sound normal again. Getting INCREDIBLY frustrated with this.
