    Try looking for it.
    Do you have a Autoexec.bat file sitting in C:, where it belongs?
    First go to View/Folder Options, and check 'show all files', in order not to overlook it.
    Then go to Start/Find/Files and Folders, and type Autoexec.
    If no Autoexec.bat turns up, create one.

    Open Windows Explorer in C:, and rightclick in it.
    Create a new Textfile which you leave blank, and save as Autoexec.bat

    Now try installing your sound card.

    Good luck,
