Rear Audio Jack Config: No GUI for SoundMax v5.10.0.6240 Help requested.

I have been forced to use an old Dimension 2400 running WinXP MCE. I would like to retask the rear audio-input jack to serve as output for a low-tech 4-speaker configuration consisting of 1 "front" set and 1 "rear" set. The problem is I cannot find a graphical user interface for the SoundMax v5.10.0.6240 driver installed on this old Dimension 2400. If there is no companion app for the SoundMax, is there another configurable audio driver somewhere that permits the functionality I am seeking? The Sound option on the control panel does not provide this functionality.

  1. Are you asking if you can use an audio input jack as an output jack? Because, I am afraid that is hardware and not related to drivers or software. It cannot be done.

    Thank you Enzo for your reply. I have limited resources and this is only a temporary problem. I know that it is possible to "retask" an input audio jack for output if one has a configurable audio driver but never did it on a Dell. I think I found a work-around. I think I can fool the computer into thinking one set of speakers are headphones and the other set are regular speakers.
