That's because the package is a UAD (Universal Audio Driver), which falls under the category of DCH (Declarative Componentized Hardware) drivers. Basically, it's a new type of driver for Windows that Microsoft are encouraging hardware manufacturers to use, and part of the requirements to use it is that each component of the driver should be separate. Therefore, any management program included with the driver should be a separate Microsoft Store app. So, you can get that app, which is called Realtek Audio Control, from www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/realtek-audio-...=pivot%3aoverviewtab .

On the other hand, the HDA (High Definition Audio) driver is an old-style driver (not DCH), so Realtek are able to include the management app directly in the driver package. If you are using Windows 10 Version 1809 or later, it is recommended to use DCH drivers for your hardware (e.g. the Realtek UAD driver) if they are available.

Thanks for the explanation. I am learning a lot about these drivers from you people. But I wonder I was I supposed to find the instructions to repack the drivers like Erpster did for me. It's quite difficult the way it is without asking for help here on the forum!

It looks like he got the .inf and .sys files for the driver from within the ZIP file, in the folder Realtek\Codec_8810.1, then created a new folder called WIN64 (i.e. Windows 64-bit) in the same folder as Setup.exe, and put the .inf and .sys files into that WIN64 folder. With most Realtek drivers that I've downloaded from the Github page, the WIN64 folder was already present, so I couldn't tell you precisely why the ZIP file for ASUS was differently structured.

There is an utility called Realtek INF Editor that converts the package in the usual form. But manual conversion is very easy. Create a folder named Win64 and move Realtek folder in XSetup\Win64.

Unofficial Realtek UAD Generic 6.0.8815.1
The official installer is included. If you prefer it over my custom made open-source installer, move Win64 folder inside Official-Setup folder and run setup.exe as admin from there.
