Default Mbox 2 Mini 2 on Win10 in 2020

Hi folks,

My simple question is for the people using an Mbox 2 Mini: How is your Mbox setup and how did you get it working?

I wanted to get it working on Windows 10 after recently upgrading from 7 and I ran into some issues with Pro Tools First. I decided to try and see if it would work with the latest software rather than the older ones, and turns out that it can. When I have a clean working installation of Pro Tools First and I install the drivers, the Mbox 2 Mini works.

The problem occurs when I reboot. I get a hard blue screen of death right away on my laptop, the ASUS ROG GL753VD It always requires a startup repair that rolls back the Mbox Driver, Pro Tools First or usually both. In another test I tried to install Pro Tools First on my older PC and the driver caused my PC to lock up and I needed to do a fresh install. This wasn't as tragic as I had recently done a fresh install due to other issues.

Sometimes I do see others using this device still but with Windows 10 and no drivers support, it seems like this Box is a Brick now. I'm just looking to confirm this and if anyone has been able to fix it.

These were the drivers that I used.

At one point I did have it working with a beta driver, but in Audacity and not Pro Tools for some reason. Weirdly enough, I believe what happened is that I used the a beta driver for a regular Mbox 2. I did not try the latest Mbox 2 driver as it appears to be the same version of the Mbox 2 Mini and likely is the same driver.

I was looking into how to omit the driver from causing issues on startup but that was more advanced than I could figure out, but I may give that a shot.

Found someone who had the same problem, tried installing win 7, then installing the Mbox then upgrading to Win 10 to get it to work.

That's too much trouble for me, so I'm just gonna buy a new mixer.
