Trouble with Directsound?

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Sun Sep 21, 2008 11:51 pm

This whole thing makes me little :evil: @ Microsoft. I realize they can't keep technologies around forever, but DirectSound is still used in so many things it's just dumb of them.

Plus, I could finish this project in XP SP2, but the person who wants to use it on Vista then gets no sound.

My case was: No sound for any feature on Vista with or without SP1, so downgraded to XP SP3 with still no sound but a different error message, finally uninstalling SP3 where everything worked fine.

Well, the audio engine in Vista is much superior, and XAudio2 is a much more sophisticated API anyway. I guess they want everyone to use their more advanced technology. If we had more people on the team, it would be less of an issue - large companies can probably just throw the manpower at converting their engines.
