  1. Using multiple (10) Audio/Sound Cards Simulationously in Windows Server 2016


    So I have a server I use that has 10 sound cards. With my previous Windows OS. I was able to play multiple audio files simultaneously without issue.


    I've purchased a new server that is running Windows Server 2016. However, now it will only allow me to set one card as the default device. I've already gone through all the apparent fix actions. Like "Shown all Disable Devises" and attempted the check the "Listen to this device" checkbox without luck.


    Why does this capability no longer exist in the newer OS?

    :)
