Issues with Audio on Windows Millennium Build 2332

Post by TheBetaFan18329 »

Hi! I installed Windows Millennium Build 2332 on a virtual machine in VMware Workstation 15. I tried to install the audio drivers and when I rebooted, there was no audio. Is there a way to fix this?

Using some compatibility mode may help

Which version should I set it on for the compatibility mode?

Try using VMWare version 5.x compatibility mode.

I tried that and I installed the audio drivers and I still don't get audio. :(

I downloaded the audio drivers from the collection book and I installed them and when I rebooted, there was not sound. :(

Try using 12 rather than 15.

That is, of course, implying you have enough time and patience to type out a convoluted VBoxManage command and setting the time in the UNIX epoch format, if I remember correctly. It's unfortunate VirtualBox hasn't given much thought to that, given that it's found its deserved praise among Windows beta explorers.

Tiny nitpick, but true nonetheless.

I am trying to get the audio working on VMware Workstation 15.

I unfortunately can't help much, cuz I don't have experience with beta versions. Maybe you could try installing the VMware Tools?

Newer versions don't work, try an earlier one like 7.x.

I installed the latest VMware Tools and it worked but when I rebooted there was no audio.
