Why Won’t my AudioBox Drivers Install?
There have been several updates for the AudioBox USB that fix a wide range of issues. If you are having any driver related issues, it is highly recommended that you uninstall the driver you have loaded and download the latest driver from the PreSonus website.
Please note that there are two driver versions for Windows uses: one for 32-bit systems and one for 64-bit systems. The following steps will take you through discovering which System Type you are using, downloading and extracting the driver from the PreSonus website, uninstalling your previous installation, and reinstalling the latest driver. Before beginning, please disconnect your AudioBox, keeping both it and a USB cable close by for the installation.

2. Right-click on “Computer”
3. Select “Properties” from the pop-up menu
4. In the middle of the Properties window, you will see the System Type field. This will say “32-bit Operating System” or “64-bit Operating System”.
