The dslaunch.exe process is a part of a series of files that make up the Yamaha DS-XG sound card series. The main function of the program file dslaunch.exe is to give the user access to the settings of the installed Yamaha DS-XG sound card. The Yamaha DS-XG series was one of the standard Yamaha sound cards designed in the late 1990s. A few of these are still in circulation at present.

The program file dslaunch.exe itself does not initially start up with Windows. Once the application starts, a small icon appears on the lower right part of the screen (taskbar) that enables the user to access the Yamaha DS-XG launcher. There, users can change the settings of the sound card to accommodate any incoming needs. After the application window is closed the tray icon will still remain visible in the taskbar. One of the options in the program dslaunch.exe asks the user whether or not to include the program file dslaunch.exe in the system startup process.

The application dslaunch.exe is not an essential Windows Operating System Component. Therefore, manually terminating the application will not cause any problems to the operating system. It is acceptable to exclude the file dslaunch.exe in the system startup unless the user finds it necessary to frequently change the settings of the Yamaha DS-XG sound card driver. It is not safe to delete the program file dslaunch.exe because the user might end up having to reinstall the whole sound card driver if there is a sudden need to change the sound card settings.

The Yamaha DS-XG sound card series has been available for some time. Even though there are newer products out in the market, a more practical user might find that this product, though a bit outdated, has every essential feature that users look for in a sound card. Quality Products like the Yamaha DS-XG sound card series ensure Yamaha of its place as one of the leading multimedia hardware and software developers across the world.


This is a safe process. There is no necessity to remove this process from your system or change it in any way.
