Fix Equalizer APO Not Working in Windows 10

The Problem

Equalizer APO is not taking any effect in Windows 10.

The Solution

  1. Open the Configurator program by searching for it in Start.
  2. Select your device and check “Troubleshooting options“.
  3. Choose “Install as SFX/EFX (experimental)“.
  4. Restart Windows.

In recent versions of Windows 10, UWP apps like “Movies & TV” may not get processed by Equalizer APO even with this fix.

Fak! That works!

However, I don’t understand why it didn’t take any effect since the first time installing it worked. I messed up with Razor Surround software, installed and finally removed it then Equalizer APO no longer work.

This did not work for me either. When I first installed APO on Windows 10, it worked great but it suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason. Exactly the same problem on a different desktop with Windows 10 Pro (1803) 64-bit.

This worked for me!!! Thank you so, so much. This was really starting to get frustrating. My headset lacks a little punch in the bass department, so I was upset that the software wasn’t working initially. Thanks again!
