You should probably include your hardware... with the 2.1.3 version VirtualPC does have sound in WindowXP here on my T42.

some of your playback volumes are set to 0, so it makes sense it's mute. play with the volumes. see unimx help for a small how to.

Replying to abwillis:

I expected the logs to have detailed information regarding hardware in use but, in case they do not, the hardware chipsets involved are nVidia nForce430/MCP61 with Analog Devices AD1988 miver.

The Volumes set to 0 seem to be those for surround type playback or are related to Line, Mic, Headphone - non of which are in use.

To clarify:

I have sounds from my eCS system (when VirtualPC is not running).

I do not have any sound from my WindowsXP guest running in VirtualPC.

If the problem was with the settings showing as 0 in the supplied log then I would not have sounds in eCS at all.

With regard to sounds in eCS when using these drivers: Best described as "flaky".

The game Klondike Solitaire (supplied with Warp4/eCS) suffers a performance hit ie runs much slower with these drivers installed when compared with a known "working" uniaud build (that does not have the lack of sound when running my Windows XP guest - with exactly the same mixer settings shown in the log).

It can be extremely difficult to boot to a working Desktop. Frequently on booting the end of the Startup sound is repeated causing the system to fail to boot to a working Desktop. It can take 5/6 attempts to overcome this problem.

This ticket 195 is *NOT* relevant.

I have sounds - albeit flaky - in eCS but not in a virtual guest os.
