Sound Blaster / Creative Labs X-Fi Fatality Pro card not detected in Server 2008 R2, HELP!!!

I need help getting a sound card installed in a terminal server.
In the dev manager I see a device called     Creative SB X-FI that is installed under Sound, Video and Game Controllers.

This sound card is in the top PCI-X slot on the left in a R710 Dell server.

The card is obvioulsly seen but I don't get any sound when connecting to the server.
I am not 100% sure but I think I am missing some hardware components in the Device Manager list.

Windows Server 2008 R2 X64 is installed for OS.

Manually install the driver first, you will get the latest driver from their website.

I ran this about 2 hours ago. I tried updating things but they didn't work. I am not sure what all is supposed to show up in the Dev Manager. I have gone through and updated all installations.

Everything is at the latest level and it is only seeing that one device. I even tried a Beta driver.

The server is 64-bit and the drivers I think might only be 32-bit. I tried to run the add "legacy" hardware wizard.

32-bit driver will not work in 64 bit driver. Try installing other nearer model from the built in driver list.

Server 2008 doesn't really give me a "nearer" model driver list. I will look again.

Try Vista 64 or Windows 7 64 bit drivers

No fix, plus Dell doesn't engineer or certify their rack servers from sound cards anymore. Issue resolved.
