Anyone have luck getting sound to work from straight up Dos 6.22 (not including Windows 3.11 as I've already got that working) using Microsoft Virtual PC 2007?  A driver and installation instructions would be very helpful.  Thanks.

To give you a driver and install instructions we need to know what kind of sound card you have first.

on the computer I'm currently using, the sound card is a SoundBlaster Live!  Using the standard SB16 drivers I was able to get sound under Windows3.11 in the VPC.  Under dos, there seemed to be a problem with the IRQ's and every single base address available (220 - 280).  Have you gotten sound to work in dos on a VM pc in any scenario?

Guess I'll rephrase...

I'm attempting to play some dos games on a virtual installation of Dos 6.22, which I can except there is no sound.  I'm looking for a standard Sound Blaster setup that would work in this case...hopefully reproduce-able.  

If you're looking for a test game, try any dos4gw game on http://www.abandonia.com/
...try Eco Quest (the search for cetus) if you want one to look for.

I installed it and the sound worked automatically with the sound blaster settings, I didn't have to configure anything. You May want to manually initialize the sound card..try this:

You know what?  I took a look at the same site and it didn't work for me.  It might be because I ran the SB16 install disk which may have done something funky to my OS I'm unaware of.  Great thing about virtual PC's...I'll just start from scratch and try it without drivers.  I'll let you know.

Well, this is obviously how you do it but for th elife of me it doesn't work.  I don't have time to continue working on it for a while so I'll close this out and give you the points.  Hopefully I can return to it int he future.  For now I may just live with DosBox.
