Working on vmware is great, but it gets even better when you have some sounds.
A straight out the box install gives you a error on the sound card.
The audio Service is not running
No audio Devices are installed
It took me some to figure out this problem, but at the end … it was really simple.
Let’s make it work !
Start >> Programs >> Administrative Tools >> Terminal Services Configuration
On the right side of the MMC highlight RDP-Tcp
Right-click and choose properties
Go to the Client settings tab
Untagg the Audio mapping and press apply.
You will need to login again to make it use the new settings.
Start >> Programs >> Administrative Tools >>Terminal Services >> Terminal Services Configuration
In the connection windows highlight the RDP-Tcp connection, right-click and choose properties
Go to the Client settings Tab.
There you will find the redirection of Audio disabled by default.
XP / Vista / Windows 7
The clients don’t have the terminal server configuration mmc, so this has to be changed from within the Local Group Policy.
start >> run >> mmc.exe
Go to file >> Add/remove snap-in
In the list choose Group Policy object editor and click on ADD
Default option is local Computer >> Click on Finish
Click on OK
Now navigatie to:
Local Computer Policy
>> Computer Configuration
>> Administrative Templates
>> Windows Components
>> Terminal Services
>> Terminal Server
>> Device and Resource Redirection
Here you will find the option: Allow Audio and Video playback redirection
This setting needs to be enabled
Restart your client and make a connection!
