Installing Crystal Audio Driver 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A. Installation:
To Install the Crystal Audio Driver, please complete one of
the following procedures:

Procedure 1 - Windows 2000 and Windows XP
1. By default, the Microsoft/Intel driver gets installed.
It is named Intel ® 82801AA AC'97 Audio Controller.
Remove this entry from the Sound, Video, and Game
Controllers section in device manager if using an ICH system.
2. Remove the corresponding Intel/Microsoft inf/pnf
file in	c:\winnt\inf.  The names of these files are
wdma_int.inf and wdma_int.pnf. It is, of course, optional
that these get removed in the case of selecting the
"Display a list of all drivers in a specific location,
so you can select the driver you want" option in the
Add New Hardware Wizard. But Plug and Play will be
easier if they are removed.
3. Restart. Plug and Play will occur again. You will be
prompted for a driver.

Procedure 2 - Windows Millennium 
1. Open Device Manager.
2. PCI Multimedia Device will have a yellow marker the
first time the operating system is installed.
3. Select "Properties" on the yellow marker.
4. Select the "Driver" tab.
5. Click on "Update Driver".
6. You will need the Windows Second Edition to complete
the WDM installation.
7. The entry that will show up in the Sound, Video, and
Game Controllers is:  Crystal WDM Audio Codec.
8. A little Sound Icon appears on the Task Bar upon
completing the driver installation.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Uninstalling Crystal Audio Drivers 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Un-Installation:

Procedure 1 - Windows 2000 and Windows XP
1. Open Device Manager.
2. Remove Crystal WDM Audio Codec entry in the Sound,
Video, and Game Controllers section. The game controller
is not part of the audio driver. It is a separate device
altogether. Crystal is not the owner of the game controller
on this audio solution.
3. Delete Crystal INF and PNF in c:\winnt\inf. These files
are oem0.inf and oem0.pnf.
4. Restart your PC for Plug and Play to happen again.

Procedure 2 - Windows Millenium
1. Open Device Manager.
2. Remove Crystal WDM Audio Codec entry in the Sound, Video,
and Game Controllers section.  Crystal is not the owner of
the game controller on this audio solution.  
3. Delete Crystal INF in c:\windows\inf\other  
4. Restart your PC for Plug and Play to happen again.


RESTRICTIONS :

1. Unnecessary Balance Controls and sliders appear in volume Control. 
   The controls are automatically built by WDM and is a limitation of 
   the WDM architecture. 
2. Windows CD-ROM may be required to install some 
   Microsoft components if not originally installed.
   A large part of the audio driver is by Microsoft and requires 
   Microsoft WDM audio components to install if not already present. 
3. The Sound Recorder application recording meter may only show the 
   left channel. This is an application restriction.
4. DOS games are not supported in shutdown to DOS, only in a DOS box. 
   DOS emulation is supplied by the OS.
