Googling about, I found the suggestion for a configuration parameter:


When I added this to my configuration file, windows started detecting sound devices just fine, and skype under windows will now play sounds to the headphones, but still doesn't hear anything from the microphone.
I've checked the obvious:  nither the windows domU or the linux dom0 has microphone muted, the mic is plugged in properly, etc.  So, I'm now most of the way there.
Any suggestions how to get the mic working?

So, I'd expect a (virtualized) sound device to be visible to DomU, so that I could run Skype or play mp3s under windows domU.  But I can't.  They whine about there not being any audio device installed.

  Control Panel/Sounds and Devices/Audio shows no available audio devices for playback, recording, or MIDI.

Any suggestions?
