It seems quite a few now are having problems with their Sound Cards and on board Sound from their Motherboard? In Windows 7RC.
I have a X-FI Platinum, which at this point, it is not worth putting in, as I now have received a email from Creative Technical Support Services:
"Thank you for writing in to Creative Technical
we appreciate the opportunity to assist you.
As regard to your request, what we can assist you is to feedback the
information to the relevant development department. As such it will be
up to the development team to determine if this is within the player
Please be informed that the current Windows 7 driver is in Beta stage
and there is no technical support for this driver yet.
Therefore it is not guaranteed that all features are going to be available in Beta
Customers are advised to just wait for the full version to release. When full version becomes available, user
should install the
latest Sound Blaster X-Fi series driver available.
We appreciate your interest and when Creative do announce the latest driver/application updates, we typically will include the information on our support.creative.com website. We encourage you to look at that

So at this point I use my on Board Sound. Which is the (SoundMax), with Vista drivers, from the Asus site? - The driver for the sound works ok! ... However, as for any other functions of the Modules in the set up, does not work.
This is due to the fact of the Dill Files, that are missing in Win7 Rc, at the moment!
Dllhost . exe is a process belonging to Microsoft Windows Operating System. The dllhost.exe file
manages DLL based applications, as required for essential applications to work properly!
I am still waiting to hear from Microsoft about this issue of the lack of Dill Files in win7 and
when I receive any info' from them. I will share it with you!
