Yesterday my headphones randomly stopped working so today i uninstalled my realtek audio drivers and tried to reinstall. I keep getting this error. First i tried downloading from official realtek audio website but the installation gave an error.
Then i downloaded through my asus motherboard website to make sure it was compatible and i still get an error. I've tried booting into safe mode but the error persists.
Below is a picture of the error and also a picture of what my previous installation was that was working perfectly for many years.
windows 7 64bit
asus z87-a motherboard
