    Can't install Nahimic

    Nodscene · 2 · Last reply by mustafa yeniçeri

    I've tried installing the two latest version but can't get anything to install. Each time I've uninstalled both the realtech driver and rebooted then try to install Nahimic. When it hung the first time I read that the old version of Nahimic. I went through uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times now without success. Tried using your recommended uninstaller but it doesn't even find the program. When trying the latest version 2.3.12 I get an error code 2753. When I try version 8 it says a newer version is installed. I've used CCleaner and manually gone through the registry to remove any

    I would love to play this game but being deaf in one ear leads to me spinning in circles looking for shooters and your sound tracker app would help me out tremendously.

    Unable to install Nahimic

    Eric · 4 · Last reply by mustafa yeniçeri

    I am trying to reinstall Nahimic but when I do, I get a popup saying "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable."  Verify that you have access to the ProgramData: Nahimic2CheckDevicesConfigurator.msi location and try again.

    Followed by another popup saying, "The older version of CheckDevicesConfigurator cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group."

    I've already uninstalled Nahimic, it no longer shows on my programs list. When I try clearing out temp and cache files, I get the same error.

    I have already installed the latest audio driver.

    Why has speaker fill been removed/disabled on MSI Realtek audio manager with Nahimic 2?

    Fusion808 · 0 · Posted

    Why has speaker fill been removed/disabled on MSI Realtek audio manager with Nahimic 2? I have logitech X530 5.1 speaker setup, it worked perfectly with enhancement/speaker fill and 5.1 enabled and audio transmitted to all speakers at the same volume on the basic sound drivers (microsoft). This option is removed if installing Nahimic 2.5.12 package and realtek drivers from MSI. Virtual sound option on Nahimic 2 does not bring back the same fill effect and sounds terrible. The hardware obviously supports this option so it is a driver problem with Nahimic 2.
    Will a future update bring back this option?

    Problem in installing Nahimic 2.3.20 with Realtek audio driver

    Moon · 2 · Last reply by erpsterc

    I can't install Nahimic 2.3.20 properly. 

    I got a message 'Installation could not proceed: The Realtek audio driver must be installed first.' when I tried to install Nahimic Nahimic 2.3.20, though I already installed Realtek audio driver which is acting normally.

    After re-installing Realtek audio driver, I could install Nahimic 2.3.20, but it seems that Nahimic was not installed properly, becaouse no shortcuts were created either on desktop or start menu, different from previous versions of Nahimic. And no response even though I click the tray icon of Nahimic.

    I tried installing various version of Realtek audio driver like 8158, 8169, and

    sound recording quality is horrible

    Sergey Smirnov · 3 · Last reply by Sergey Smirnov

    I have Z170A Gaming m3 mobo by MSI. I'm pretty happy with the sound it produces. Nevertheless I can't record anything decent sounding. Only with Realtek drivers  installed, I record fine if I speak right into the mic but the volume of a recording jump and down like crazy with every word I say. The good thing there's no noise. If I install Nahimic2 the volume doesn't jump up and down thanks to the voice leveler. However the noise suppression doesn't work at all. Oh Hell. On my old PC with P5B-E motherboard from 2007 I can record just fine with no issues. The volume

    hdmi audio problem

    Irwin Crueize · 2 · Last reply by Irwin Crueize

    I have a msi gt72vr 6re and i encounter a problem with nahimic and audio by hdmi on my tv.
    Indeed, when nahimic is enabled, a lot of my videos have no sound (but some yes, at first I thought it could come from the audio codec, but no, some of my videos whose sound works has the same audio codec as videos whose sound does not work, even bitrate, even encoding).
    When nahimic is disabled, all my videos work normally.

    I do not want to spend my time activating / deactivating nahimic depending on whether I'm on my
