Microsoft Windows XP SP3 RC Does NOT Support High Definition Audio

Posted on Saturday, Jan 05 2008 @ 11:10 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
In Windows XP, if we need to run a High Definition Audio (HDA) device, we would have to install the Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) driver. However, this does NOT work for the latest Windows XP Service Pack 3 Release Candidate Release.

If you've already tried installing the Windows XP Service Pack 3 Release Candidate v3264 with a High Definition Audio (HDA) device in your computer, I'll bet you have encountered problems with the audio drivers as I did.

"When you try installing the KB888111 which works for SP1 and SP2, it will not work for Service Pack 3, at least for the current SP3 RC v3264. Instead, you will be prompted with a message saying that the current service pack installed is newer than the fix you are trying to apply. Even the older KB835221 does not work."
