After lots of reading and struggling for more than a day, I finally got this right! Once you understand how to do this, it becomes a “Walk in the Park”! There is no reason, like in other mentioned posts and wiki’s to remove and re-add the VM, all you have to do is add the values to your Configuration Parameters of your VM.
To get your Windows 8.1 VM sound-enabled, you have to do the following:
- Shut down your Windows 8.1 VM
- Right-Click on the VM > Edit Settings > Option Tab > General > Configuration Parameters
- Add the following lines:
sound.present / TRUE
sound.allowGuestConnectionControl / FALSE
sound.virtualDev / hdaudio
sound.fileName / -1
sound.autodetect / TRUE
sound.pciSlotNumber / 35
- Note: The sound.pciSlotnumber value of 35 I used by looking through the values and finding the next open PCI value. Just look through the entries…
Start your VM and test by using MSTSC.
You can now use your WYSE device with full audio.
