OK I managed to solve this.
I was pretty certain that all patches had been applied.... but when I used the Windows Update program directly and not from the control panel, many more patches became available. I don't know, might have just been a timing issue.
Anyhow, with all patches applied, including SP1 and beyond, the audio driver package installs properly (and jack audio works).
