Sound drivers for Windows NT 3.51 VMware

Post by WinXPFan »

I want to get the sound working in Windows NT 3.51 guest installed in VMware, cuz i ported Pinball Space Cadet from NT 4.0 to NT 3.51, and the gameplay is boring without sound effects. How do I get them working?
I love Windows XP!

Try to install SB16 drivers.

But VMware utilizes Sound Blaster PCI 128... The SB16 Driver may BSOD the system.

If I recall correctly, there's no ES1371 driver for NT 3.51, only ES1370, which is incompatible with VMware's ES1371.

Just remember that this topic is pretty old, and may not be suitable for your version of VMware

Open vmx file in notepad, and add this line: sound.virtualDev = "sb16"
I like Windows Server (all versions). But client versions of Windows is also not bad.

And there is my task, in which I have to try to boot Windows 8/Server 2012 builds starting with 7700 up to this build, that I install and boot successfully on UEFI without CSM (without any modifications), and you could help me in doing this task, if you want.
