Corsair Vengeance 1500 Headphones Drivers won't install...

Ok, so I just got home with the vengeance 1500 headphones and when I try to install the 1.1 drivers it opens the install window and runs a bunch of commands and then disappears. If I try running in XP SP3 compatability mode it actually gets past that and starts an install bar but freezes 3/4 through. There is nothing in the app tray when I search for the program windows come up with nothing. I'm not sure of a way to check and see if they installed and the app with the equalizer functions is nowhere to be found. Could it be a problem with windows 8? I REALLY don't wanna roll back to 7! Any ideas?? The headset works fine but I read over and over that the difference in sound quality is huge... help!
Thx in advance

  1. Using an operating system in beta is hit and miss. It is as simple as that. If various compatibility modes does not help. You are probably stuck waiting for them to release a version prepared for windows 8.
  2. Hoping someone who sees this has had different luck... think it might be possible because windows7 and vista compatibility mode appear to have the same result as windows 8.
  3. ok so i had the same issue and tried running it in windows 7 compatability mode, but it wouldnt install. I just used the windows 8 trouble shooter and got lucky.
  4. try to run the installer as an adminstrator and use windows vista SP2 compability mode worked for me. :)
  5. unzip the install file using some thing like 7zip, then run the setup file in win7 compatibility mode and it should work, it did for me. got this idea from http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?p=607868

    Thank you for mentioning this. Btw, I had to go into the USB112-110929-8.2150(W7-ER)WHQL folder and install in compatibility mode from there, but it did work. It was getting to me that Corsair wasn't bothering to update their driver.
  9. Hey, man! Try this thing out, just got this headphones and this process worked for me:
