For some reason. any driver i'm installing customary, like Virtual Sound Card drivers, do not initialize after reboot.

I tried virtual sound card drivers, they initialize fine when installing, but after reboot i cant see the device in sound devices. (the plugin is listed in device manager though)

I tried the following:

Virtual Audio Cable

Is there any settings i need to know that is related to saving such configurations for a user before a restart?

Im using Windows Server 2012.

The problem was that those drivers didn't have a digital signature and needed to be signed a way.

This guide was very helpfull for those who stumble upon this problem:
