Guideline on how to delete old ASIO device entries

After the installation/uninstallation of audio card drivers, old or unneeded ASIO drivers are still selectable in you ASIO host application.

Often, uninstallers do not remove these entries from the Windows registry or the uninstallation was not successful at all.


If this happens, you have to manually delete the old entries in the Windows registry.

Open the Windows registry (Start -> run -> regedit)

Open the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> ASIO

Delete the unnecessary audio card entries you do not want or need by right-clicking the entry and choosing delete.

Do not alter any other entries since this can seriously damage the functionality of your system! We do not take any responsibility for improper modifications.
