F***ing W10 wont let me install the third part! I´ve tried using a small app called "Take Ownership" tried as admin, tried making a backup both inside the ALchemy folder by renaming and by moving the 2 files into another folder called BU but the 2 files don´t drop into the folder! Is there more ways to persuade the "Programs(x86)" folder to accept me as it´s owner/administrator?

Try turning off UAC in Control Panel, i run with it off all the time.

But you can turn it on again after installing if you are uncomfortable with it off.

Don't turn off UAC unless you want to become part of the biggest botnets on this planet.

This is what you can do with windows standard tools:
  • Click on the start icon and type "cmd".
  • Right click on the "Command Prompt" found and select "run as administrator".
  • Enter your admin password when being prompted.
  • Inside the command prompt, enter "explorer" and hit the return key. This will bring up an Explorer Window with elevated rights.
  • In your new Explorer Window with elevated rights, copy the files to the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Creative\ALchemy" folder.
    You will be prompted to proceed with this step, confirm with the leftmost button.

Best regards - Mike

Still nogo in another way though. I get a message that I don´t have an alchemy required device! I have an ASU Xonar DGX Audio soundcard that the alchemy thingie doesn´t seem to find. (Last question then, on guru3d there is an alchemy v 1.10-something from 2008, would that be useful or is it too old?)
Downloaded for testing! I´ll report back.

The 1.10.01 didn´t even let me set it  up so I´ll leave it be, sadly!

I get a message that I don´t have an alchemy required device!
This only happens when you didn't replace the two files as written in the readme.
Note: ALchemy originally only supports certain SoundBlaster/Audigy cards, the full list is available here: http://support.creative.com/kb/showarticle.aspx?sid=28967
Only when you put the two modded files "ALchemy.exe" and "dsound.dll" into your ALchemy program folder, the tool will work with any card.
If it works with my Realtek onboard HD sound and with my noname USB headphone adapter, then it will work with your Asus Xonar too.

Do I first place the 2 files into the alchemy folder before running the setup.exe? Cause when I run the setupfile I get the "no device" message! According to your instructions I need to install first, then replace the files!

First install, then replace files.
I get the "no device" message!
The what?
Please describe precisely what you did before you get that message and show a screenshot of the message itself.
