Please note that the recent Microsoft update on 27 October 2020 (version 20H2), as well as some prior versions, removes Adobe's Flash Player. Our MediaTool Box software for Sound Blaster ZxR, Sound Blaster X-Fi HD, Sound Blaster Digital Music Premium HD, and Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1, which requires Adobe's Flash Player to work, will cease to work properly if you have updated your Windows recently. Our in-house tests also revealed that Adobe Flash Player may have been removed on earlier Windows 10 systems (prior to the Windows 10 version 20H2 update). To learn more on how to roll back your Windows system to support Adobe Flash Player content, please click here for more details.
