I have installed a Soundblaster live value card on a PIII 600EB and after loading the drivers I get an error:
A fatal exception has occurred at 0028:c14e1b3b in vxd emu10k1 (01)+0000b71b
Its possible to click OK and continue.
The error appears at startup and when completing almost any operation in Win 98 2nd ed. Also locks up PC at shutdown.
The error only occurs with the SB Live card and not other soundcards.

Make sure you have the latest drivers installed.  Download liveware 3.0 and install it.  Also make sure that you have no conflicts with IRQs and I/O addresses.

Just download the latest driver from www.soundblaster.com.

The driver comes with the CD xxxxxx0001 does not work with some operating system.

I assume you have either Live MP3 or XGamer as the Platinum version come with the latest driver. xxxxxx0003.

Good luck.

AS I've posted about some other SB-Live problems, there are some motherboards which simply hate this card. Make sure you have the most current Mobo BIOS.

*clears throat*  Not trying to start anything but I was the first one to post to this question and I believe I did say that you should load Liveware 3.0 and that it should take care of your problem..
