I'm using Virtual Server R2 SP1 to host a Windows Server 2008 guest. I have the virtual machine additions 13.820 installed but I do not see any audio devices in device manager. I know there is an audio driver located in C:\Program Files\Virtual Machine Additions but I do not have a device to attach the driver to.
