Windows 7: No sound on Remote Desktop for Win XPe client with Win 7 host

No sound on Remote Desktop for Win XPe client with Win 7 host

I have a desktop computer running Win7 and a thin client (Wyse V90L) running Win XP Embedded. I am using Remote Desktop to log into my desktop computer running Win7. The problem is that despite having set up Remote Desktop on the client to 'Play on this Computer', no audio plays. When I click on the volume control, there is no slider and instead the message 'no audio device is installed' is displayed. If I choose to leave sound at my desktop, then it functions as expected.

The client plays its own sounds just fine.

Any ideas to try? Thanks a lot.
