Problems with VB-Cable Installation

Postby PsyberMind » Fri Dec 08, 2017 3:25 pm

So, I have a mission critical application for my LIve Streaming. I *Have* to be able to mute out Mumble Comms from my stream for Eve Online for OpSec reasons..

Did some research, found that VoiceMeeter/VB Cable would take care of this nicely for me. FANTASTIC

Downloaded VB-Cable, and the Latest VoiceMeeter

Unzipped Cable into folder, on my desktop, ran the x64 Installer in Administrator Mode. It sits for literally what seems 30 minutes (But it's probably more like 5) and then gives me an "unknown error." BUT In the audio devices in my device manager, I see a brand new Device Driver. So I assume it's a false reading, and reboot..

Once I've rebooted, I check the device manager, and now the same device is in error (Yellow Triangle) - So, I re-run the installer, uninstall, reboot.. back to installer, it prompts me to uninstall again? So, I uninstall again, reboot, re-run the installer, and.. Now it's ready to install.. I go to install and..the process repeats itself all over again (unknown error) The drivers simply will NOT install for me..

Windows 10, with an Integrated RealTek HDAudio

I'm not sure that I'm missing a step here or what?

you may uninstall it completely and re-install it by following strictly these steps:

1-Download zip on your local disk (C: system disk).
2-Extract all files in one folder (e.g. temporary folder on C: System Disk)
3-Run Setup program in administrator mode (right click on exe to see the “run as administrator”)
4-Follow instruction : REBOOT after installation

That's the problem.. I DID that.. But I still run into the issue with the Unknown Error when I attempt to reinstall after rebooting..

Well, this could be due to bad Windows Update or bad Windows installation,
you may do a check disk or windows system check ...

Also it seems Windows keeps in mind that a driver is not working (badly installed) for several days...
and re-installing it does nothing...

So i recommend to unsintall it completly (like you did) and forget it for some days/weeks
install Voicemeeter Banana, providing 2 virtual audio cable (usually enough for 95% use cases).
