Only one input/output available in Windows

I'm trying to configure my Firestudio Project to work with Windows. In Windows I can only see one input device and one output device, even though I've configured WDM in universal control to have 8 inputs and 8 outputs. In WDM I can reroute which of the physical outputs/inputs should be used by Windows, but I can't get any more devices in Windows Audio Manager.

My guess is that this is a driver issue. I've installed the drivers for Firestudio Project found in the Universal Control program folder. I don't know if it's relevant, but the Windows computer is running Windows Server 2012 R2 (x64).

This is a bug in the 1.7.3 release driver that affects WDM support only on Windows for the FireStudio Products.

This is only an issue if you want to play audio from Windows Media Player, YouTube, or use a DAW that supports mutli-channel WDM I/O such as Sonar, N-Track, etc. If you need more than just ASIO, then please uninstall the 1.7.3 release and revert back to 1.7.2, then your WDM Channels will re-appear.

I know that W2K12 isn't officially supported but I guess the same drivers as used for Windows 8 should work. However, I don't know where to find the correct drivers to try with.

Didn't make any difference :(

Shouldn't it be possible to get this working, even though it's not a officially supported os?
