    Windows 7 Professional x64 - XP SP3 & Windows 8 CP on VMWare Player

    No Sound


    The device manager shows the Windows generic audio driver which doesn't work.
    I've downloaded and installed (?) Realtek AC97 driver for Windows 7 but it doesn't show up in device manager.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Problem solved.
    It had nothing to do with Windows 8, it was the settings in the VMWare Player.
    Sorry if I've wasted anyone's time.
