  1. Forgot to menction

  2. Finally dream come true movement
    Enjoying Dolby digital plus in my 11yrs old system
    DDP working very well in rear audio jack
    But it’s not working in front, the drivers is not even detecting the front audio panel any solution for this

    Thank you for the Dolby Digital Plus

  3. Title of the article is misleading. It is guide for installation of Dolby Digital Plus and not Dolby Audio

  4. Thank you so much!
    I had this app on my laptop as I got it, but after reinstalling window 10, it was gone, and I couldn’t find it on MS Store application, no results for the search: “Dolby Audio”.
    Then I have found some information about a Dolby audio DRIVER, from Lenovo website, but it didn’t work on my machine.
    I even spent 2 hours with a Microsoft agent on the chat and made a phone call to Lenovo support, and they couldn’t solve this problem!

    And suddenly and luckily I have found this page, and man, it’s so simple, I have solved the problem with the link to the online MS Store that you have published here:

    Thank you so much !

  5. well retried and all installed, should that app work now ?! Atmos app still shows driver issue when opening

  6. Doesnt seem to work, in safe mode it still says driver needs to be signed. I seem to have the same issue with the driver signing check turned off.

  7. Right up to Step 5 after the last restart/reboot everything is going exactly as planned, but when I double click on DolbDigitalPlusAAx64 I get a “Dolby Digital Plus needs to be installed” window and the proccess stops? What would be my next step? I went looking for the download but can’t find anywhere? Can you give a good link and if there is a different way to run / install it can you give the same great step by step?

  8. I needed to restart with disabling driver with signature on Pt.13 – Just choose (7) and it´s working fine – Thanks

  9. Thanks 🙂 you just fixed my sound performance on W10, a way better now, but just a little thing, in order to windows let you install the driver you must disable driver signature on advanced reboot mode
