Here is my workaround that used to work in Windows 10 build 9879 with PAX drivers: 1. Run Console launcher as administrator 2. Bluetooth 2.0 Driver For Windows 10. Switch to Audio Creation mode, restart 3. Overclock.

It seems most Creative users have had problems with the drivers. The best thing to try is to download and install Daniel K's driver pack for Windows 10. They should get most of the Creative software to work although you might have to mess with it a bit. The drivers MS sends via Windows Update just don't work quite right. It was much worse on the 9926 build and previous but MS and Creative have been working to get things straightened out.
As you mentioned at least we now get sound but not much functionality of the Creative software. Thankfully build 10041 didn't install new drivers over the Daniel K drivers I had already installed. Guess they are learning to leave well enough alone for now with Creative drivers. Daniel K has revised Creative drivers several times over the years and his versions seem to work better than the originals with later versions of Windows. There has been lots of discussion on the forum about Creative and their drivers and possible solutions. I am using the old SB X-Fi Fatality Champion and with Daniel K's drivers the software works pretty well now.
The link to the drivers thread on Creative forum: The worst problem I have now is that with each reboot Windows tends to reset the Creative software settings but at least the software can be accessed to change and restore it. There have been positive improvements thanks to Daniel K but it isn't quite there yet. Suggest you go to the Windows Feedback app and let them know you too are having problems. I still add my 'me too' every few days.
