I have an aging Fujitsu lifebook AH512 laptop which uses the Realtek Audio Manager.
Win10 versions 1709 and 1803 both remove this necessary advanced audio controls utility from my system by overwriting the earlier driver.
I have an earlier Realtek HDA driver which when I install brings the utility back into operation.
However, this is not the latest driver as provided with Wi10 1709 and 1803 versions update.
Consequently, a driver update check notifies me I am not using the latest driver, (as recommended) whenever I get the Realtek Audio Manager working again.
As I need to use the boost function on the Realtek Audio Manager - to boost my (very weak) sound, I am perplexed.
Do I install the earlier dated driver which activates Realtek audio manager (circa 2014) and ignore the update to a later version or is there something wrong with Win10 1803?
The Realtek Audio manager app still appears in C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA showing the RAVbg64 application, but when you run it (administrator or otherwise) it simply fails to work.
Any solutions would be greatly appreciated, or if as I suspect, there are more of you out there with the same problem, then please click the "I have the same problem" button so MS starts to take some notice.
