    For about a year I also installed Windows 7, although not a lite version but a regular version, which was far to heavy BTW. Then I installed that driver (of the link that is dead now) and it really worked! So I have the prove that thát driver was the solution to have sound on the Toshiba.

    BTW: thank you for your prompt reaction and reflecting!

    I'm almost sure that you can install the old driver in x86 Windows 7 (with some driver signing related warnings).

    That's what I tried in the first place, but that didn't work out: the reason that I ask for help!;)

    Thank you! I am not sure if I tried this one, but I will try right now!

    I have to download every file of the driver separately, so it takes some time, but I surely will return ASAP!

    Unfortunately it doesn't work! Also in this driver the header still says it is not for Windows 7.

    I think all of the drivers are identical, the dead link is the exact same file name as the others, I doubt it was any different, install the XP driver in compatibility mode

    Unfortunately this version of Windows 7 Lite does not have the Compatibility tab, so I can't change the compatibility of the driver. Is there another way to change the compatibility? E.g. per commmand line, in a prompt or whatever? If that is possible it would be worth trying this also.

    After my attempt to install this is the output:

    Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.

    YAMAHA DS-XG PCI Audio CODED (WDM)

    The system cannot find the file specified.


    Maybe this might help to find a solution?:eek:

    Do yourself a favour and dump windows 7 lite and install full untouched version. That is just the first problem you have encountered using a stripped version what would be next.

    I do agree with you, but by doing so the laptop isn't workable anymore: so the only way is this lite version of Windows 7.

    For the rest this lite version is just great: I also use this on my desktop, next to the full version of 7 and 8, and it's lightning fast, and without issues whatsoever! So I use this version on my desktop in stead of the official, full versions: I like the speed of it!

    I tried to make a compatibility.cmd file with following commands:

    set __COMPAT_LAYER=WinXP
    E:\Toshiba\install.exe


    The install.exe is the driver install folder; E is the USB pen drive, on which is the folder.

    But this doesn't do anything: what do I do wrong?

    Some of the registry strings don't even exist in this lite version, so I'm afraid this is a no-goo_O

    I am at the point of giving up: is there any solution out there?

    Is it possible to change something in the oem7.inf to make it compatible for Windows 7 in THAT way, in stead of using the compatibility mode (in my case impossible to use)?

    If it is useful to show the contents of that oem7.inf I will show it here, but it is a rather long story...;)

    I found another Setup for the driver; during installation it says:

    UseDLL failed.

    Couldn't load SETINF.DLL


    By finding SETINF.DLL the solution might be in reach!?

    Does anybody has a SETINF.DLL? I looked around on the internet, but even at DLL-download sites it is absent.

    So if someone has this file and is willing to share, I would be very grateful for that! The path would probably be:

    %ProgramFiles%\InstallShield Installation Information\{3663DDE0-D8AE-11D3-9850-00C04F7AC096}\setinf.dll

    It is worth trying to add this file to the installation folder, in order to see if this enables the installation.

    ...simple google search lead me to a lot of hits. After reading quite a few I am convinced the deleted driver on Rapidshare AND the driver available on 4shared are exactly the same. :rolleyes:- I am pretty sure the XP driver (5.2.3662.0) works on the (official) Windows 7.
