  • Road Runner with Vista Audio Help

    Hey, i only had windows vista here so i decided i would give it a go...


    i was very surprised on how much i actually like it... only and only problem i have right now is getting sound working for roadrunner, i did some search and didnt really get any answer on how to make this work.


    any help would be very appreciated! thanks!

    A little more searching found this gem: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/road...ows-vista.html

    run RR on vista with compatibility mode set to xpsp2 and the volume will work.

      I tested it in VMWare, it works.

      I am reminded about how much I hate vista and how I'll resist changing to it for as long as possible. The few minutes it took to test this out was painful and annoying.

        Vista is really nice, i switched long ago.. if you're a gamer, it might be slower, but i doubt it since sp1, its much much more secure, a bit naggy if you got UAC on.

        the Audio subsystem is NOTHING like xp... for the 1st time in years, MS dumped the audio system which has been around since win95/98, its the programs responsiblity to update. i really like how vista gives me volume control on a per application basis, been a long time need

        audio management in RR isnt very good anyway... a hodge podge of mixer control/winamp(some other player)

        oddly i cant think of any application that doesnt work with vista
        some have issues with UAC, but you have to understand why, and the transistion ms is taking... from basicly no filesystem security to alot. in the past everyone was basicly an administrator... no more
        course for advanced users(which is not people) you can turn off UAC

        my 2 cents

        Sun, Come shine my way
        May healing waters bury all my pain
        Wind, Carry me home
        The fabric of reality is tearing apart
        The piece of me that died
        Will return To live again

              I did my test in VMWare, that could be the difference, I don't know.
