Windows 7: Virtual MS dos in vBox. Trying to get sound up and running.

Virtual MS dos in vBox. Trying to get sound up and running.

Hi I got Ms dos 6.22 on my virtual box and have been fiddling around with it. I would like it to be able to play games like dosbox with full sound.

V box is trying to emulate Sound Blaster 16. Im sure i need drivers. The funny thing is some of my games do have some sound but they wont play the background music such as Skyroads.
Where do i find these drivers? I have been looking on the let with no luck so far.

Some games have a runtime error like Pharaohs Tomb "Runtime error 200 at 1105:12DB"

Most games run fine.

Thanks for your help

Edit: Back in the day i did have a sound blaster 16 pci card but the drivers are for 95/98/NT up to XP...No ms-dos

Ok i need to update you guys

I went to a more well known game (Descent) and ran setup.exe. It comes up with the sound card just fine(And it plays sounds fine). What I think i am missing is a music card. It dosen't say i am missing it...... the music just wont play when i click (test music card)

Hi mods Mea culpa -- made an error -- you of course CAN connect via RDP if you need to - you have to allow it (as like any other machine) in the settings to allow remote users to connect. Cheers jimbo
