Windows 7: Command Line Utility Change Sound Device

Command Line Utility Change Sound Device


I am looking for a method for CLI-only changing of the default audio device.
(Control Panel-> Hardware and Sound -> Manage Audio Devices)
I have already tried various options such as AutoIT, AutoHotKey and while I was able to get it working, this was not the optimal solution.

Does anybody know of a way to change it using only CLI utilities?

Command Line Utility to change sound device


Did you ever find something that would work? I've got the same problem and I've been using AutoHotKey for a while now, but find it unreliable - especially if audio devices change.

Actually I am still using an auto it script that I created. I will try to post the code soon.
There was no other way I could find to do this.
