I have just tried Vista again to see wether the devicename issues have beed fixed or not.
It seems that the friendly names are not set automatically. All devices are named:

"Volume Control"

If you open a Windows audio app (e.g. Wavelab) you can select the audio device from a list of devices which are all called "Volume Control".
The funny thing is that you can change the name of each device if you go to:

Control Panel -> Sound and Speech Recognition ->Audio Devices and Sound Themes -> Audio Devices

By double clicking on each device I'm able to set individual devicenames.
My question is if it is possible to set the devicesnames from the beginning within the driver or the .inf file.
The friendly names which are also set in the registry are not recognized by vista.
