    vmware xp virtual sound now distorted after recent update to win10


    Since the last update to windows 10 14393, a virtual vmware xp machine now has distorted audio after login. The first sound, which is the welcome sound on bootup is ok, but thereafter all sound is distorted (has the flavor of a totally overloaded channel - i.e. sounds like severe clipping). I didn't change anything in the vmware virtual.

    Anyone else seen this and/or any ideas?

    :)

  2. Windows XP Virtual Machine missing after conversion to Win 10 from Win 7

    If you had XP Mode, it is gone and is blocked from running on Windows 10. Even XP Mode vms converted by VMWare and other virtualization programs are blocked. User created XP vms also will not run if in Microsoft Virtual PC format because Virtual PC does
    not run on Windows 10. The only Microsoft virtualization software that runs on Windows 10 is Hyper-V. Hyper-V is only available on Windows 10 Pro. XP is not supported in Windows Hyper-V (no integration tools). It runs, but it is pretty useless without
    the integration tools.

    I use VMWare Player to run XP vms that I created in VMWare Player in Windows 10. You can also use VirtualBox and others of the third-party virtualization programs. You will need a Windows XP license to create an XP vm in any of these virtualization programs.

    Sorry for the bad news.

  3. Windows 10 App Compatibilty Check - Inconsistent results

    I have 2 laptops running Windows 7 Pro. On both of them I have VMWare Player and Virtual PC 2007. On one of them I have additionally installed Windows XP Mode.

    When I run the Windows 10 Compatibility App I get different results.

    On one laptop I am told I need to uninstall Virtual PC 2007 and I need to uniinstall and reinstall VMWare Player after the Windows 10 upgrade, presumably meaning Virtual PC will not run under W10.

    On the second laptop - the one with XP Mode installed - there is no reference to either Virtual PC or VMWare Player or even XP Mode (which needs Virtual PC to operate) needing to be uninstalled.

    So I am mightily confused. Can anyone give me a definitive answer regarding these 3 apps?

    TIA

    The workaround found by googling, is to run media player, change to "now playing" and then minimize the player. That fixes the sound. Apparently, this problem is old, but bit me new.
