Can anyone please help me with the Windows 7.1 virtual surround driver for the DS502 gaming headset. When I plug the headset in, or install any of the drivers that I have found on the MSI website, it only allows the headset to be configured as stereo. I wish to change the speaker setup to 7.1 surround using the windows playback devices setting (so that games can use the virtual surround sound). I am specifically looking for Windows 10 64 bit drivers.

The drivers at https://www.msi.com/product/multimedia/support/DS502-GAMING-Headset.html#down-driver do not seem to have the 7.1 drivers. Neither is it on the CD that came with the headset. 

In the Quick Guide, I only get this vague statement:
Quote
Note: By default, the MSI DS502 GAMING HEADSET works out of the box as a 2.0 (stereo) headset. To achieve 7.1 surround sounds, please install the necessary drivers to set up virtual 7.1 surround sound.

What are the necessary drivers that this guide refers to?

Any help will be appreciated.

Install the  utility. Under Speaker, there should be an option for 7.1 emulation.
