    Can't install Nahimic

    Nodscene · 1 reply · Last reply by UnCaged

    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

    Unable to install Nahimic

    Eric · 3 replies · Last reply by Eric

    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.

    You may have been experiencing cracking sounds during your game sessions.

    We noticed the problem is increased on some configurations (ex: GE62 6QF,GE62 6QE,GP62 6QF, GP62 6QE) when Xbox game DVR bar is activated. 

    We recommend to deactivate it to decrease the cracking noise issue.

    To deactivate the Xbox game DVR bar, 2 methods are available:

    First method: 

    - Launch Xbox app
    - Open Settings
    - Click on Game DVR
    - Switch off "Record game clips and screenshots using Game DVR"


    Second method: 

    Click here and download the registration entry.

    This registration entry will automatically deactivate the Xbox game DVR bar.

But in the dragon center, nothing happens when I push the button Nahimic 2. I can see that Nahimic 2 exist in the list with programs. How can I solve this problem?Thanks.

    ASIO Support

    Daniel Ovrutskiy · 2 replies · Last reply by Kyrillo

    Nahimic claims that it supports ASIO since version 2, but I don't see any native ASIO output device in my host applications.

    ASIO4ALL obviously works (and successfully bypasses DirectSound/Nahimic driver), but for example in Foobar2000 ASIO4ALL OR WASAPI output modes give much more different sound representation then DirectSound/Nahimic do (but ASIO4ALL and WASAPI themselves sound extremely similar if not the same).

    Even more - disabling audio effects ("global" button) in Nahimic control panel gives additional, 3rd type of sound signature (but sounds extremely bad). Yet uninstalling Nahimic gives initial DirectSound signature, and not "horrible" version of of.

    Nahimic 2 Crashes on startup

    Today, my MSI GP62 QE updated to the latest version of windows 10, when the update was finsished I watched a video, and the audio was extremely loud, despite my computer being set to 60. I tried to launch Nahimic 2, nothing happened, and I thought maybe it was because of the update, uninstalled and re-installed. When I open it now, it just says "Nahimic 2 is not working" and closes.


    UPDATE: Installed latest version of Realtek, now receiving error that says "Nahimic 2 Error on Audio Driver Check, please verify version of Audio Driver."

    Will there be support for Camtasia Studio ( and in particular, just in case you look into it, Camtasia Studio Screen Recorder, a very useful program for creating computer screen recordings with audio) ?
