Alright, here is the deal.

I have been searching the net for solutions to this weird issue about "drivers", and after 4 hours I am kind of done with it.

 

Due a Windows mess up where I was forced to re-install windows through the system recovery this whole issue started. The " can not find headset" bull crap.

 

The drivers is not your issue here. The program and everything that makes it do it's magic worked fine after upgrading from 8.1 to 10 through the windows " Keep my files" option.

 

Everything was working FINE, even the program to set EQ and voice morph or what you call it. UNTIL you execute a system restore and NOT keep your files.

 

This is where your issue start. The setup program does not initialize the whole headset (most likely due a USB UUID that does not fit the profile) and it will refuse to install the program your trying to get back for to what it used to be.

 

So here is my question to you CM development.

Your drivers are not the issue. How hard is it to release a installation that does not initialize the usb device and just happily continues with installing the software that is needed for your expensive headset you still promote for people to buy. Take your source and re-compile without the lil check and you have a :) ton of people that are happy again and praise your work.

 

in short: It is your installation program that refuses. not the drivers themselve as they worked fine before if they are installed in 8.1 windows and you upgrade your pc to win 10.

Reason? Program is on the hard drive, drivers are used so windows keeps them.

And I just got right about the USB UUID with a little modding I just fixed it.

 

What I have done:

-Download the latest driver and unpack it

-open up "setup.ini"

 

Why this file? the Setup checks for the device Class Guid. it won't install because it does not match..

So where can I find this?

 

-right click speaker icon on desktop

-select playback devices

-double click your Speakers (Sirus Headset)

-on General click on properties

-once there you want to go to "Details" and select "Class Guid"

 

This Class Guid is what is being used for the setup. Go ahead and right click it for copying and paste it without its { and } in your setup.ini and save

 

Happy installing

 

P.S: Can one tell me if the Guid {4d36e96c-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} is the same for them or not.

If so, I can Zip a correct installation for people to download for windows 10

 

Now I feel like I should get paid by CM for doing their job.. (jk jk al in good fun)

 

EDIT: I felt so free to just zip up the installation with the changed Class Guid and slammed it on my server for people to get around their issue.

I don't know if this sorts out the issue for you, but once I got replies that it actually work for them I'm happy.

Unfortunately this did not work for me. (Might be partly because my PC is long overdue for a reinstall...)

 

I did, however, find another solution bypassing the problem with the lack of official drivers. 

Windows 10's generic USB audio drivers work just fine, you get to set up your headset for 5.1 surround, and all functions on the USB audio unit are fully functional. All that is missing is an equalizer.

I dug around the internet a bit and found EqualizerAPO, an open source equalizer that works on a system level, rather than through the device driver. It seems to work just fine without any noticeable performance impact.  :)

 

I know it's a workaround, but I hope it helps any others out there unable to get the proper drivers to work.

 

Good night, and good luck

For me, i just unistall the old software and checked everything was deleted.

After i opened the folder with the driver of Tekno Catron, plugged the headset and lauched the "setup.exe" file. When it was installed, at this moment functionalities of the headset didn't work. I closed the software, restart the computer, and relaunch the software, and after that everything worked fine (equalizer, flex bass, microphone effect, stereo, 5.1, emulation 7.1...)

 

I don't know if it will help you or someone else, but for me it works with this method  :)

I don't know what to do! My headset is on service, and i can chose between Storm Sirus 5.1 or Asus Strix DSP.

I don't know i never test the strix but when i see the support of cooler master, i would recommended you to choose asus. Moreover if you don't have to pay, now the storm sirus cost around 80€ and the Strix 135€, so if you're unsatisfied or want to change, the strix has more value for resale, and i read some test, it seems good.
