Hi,
I would like to find out the currently used sound driver "filename" on my machine. On windows 95, you can go to System Properties > Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > properties > Driver to get the information. I assume that I can get to the same information from my C++ program, can I ?

You can find it on Win95 by examining the entries in 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaResources'. There are subkeys for wave and midi and several other media types, which all have subkeys for the drivers associated with them...

Thanks, I tried the same path on Windows NT, all I found was Midi, mci and NonGeneralMIDIDriverList. I wonder if I can find the Wave driver name on NT.
