VC: Setting Master Volume

Posted on 1998-12-19

Last Modified: 2011-09-20
I'm using Visual C++ 5 under Windows 95 and a Creative SoundBlaster 16 Value PNP sound card.

I am trying to set the global volume (the one which, in the Windows Volume Control, is called just plain "Volume"). I have tried to use auxSetVolume without success; any value I pass for uDeviceID affects some subsystem, like the wave-out or midi-out. I want something that affects the global volume and can't figure out how to do it. Am I using the wrong function?
