Application crashes on a call to WINAPI waveOutOpen RRS feed

  • Hi All,

    My application tries to open a waveform device to perform audio playback. When i try to open a wave device which is not the default playback device, the call to waveOutOpen() function crashes my application. Where can I get more info regarding this error ?


    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Siddharth,


    I'm facing this issue in Windows 7 Professional. The audio driver installed is RealTek. It shows two devices namely

    • RealTek Digital Output
    • RealTek Optical Output.

    I can open both these devices without any problem and perform playback when they are set as the default device. But when i try to open them when they are not the default device, the function waveOutOpen() crashes.
