I'm having a problem with some kind of application called "DirectSound". I ran a quick google search online and it says DirectSound is a part of DirectX so I'm assuming that maybe the problem lies with DirectX.
Anyway, what happens is this:
I've been playing around in this 8-bit music tracker program called "FamiTracker" for about a month. And now all of a sudden when I launch the program it gives me this message that says:
Error: DirectSound initialization failed!"
I click OK and then the typical Microsoft Error thing pops up saying:
"A Famicom/NES music tool has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience"
I checked to see what data this error report contained and aside from a ton a code that I couldn't copy to my clipboard there was a section at the bottom that said:
"The following files will be included in this error report: C:\DOCUME~1\Daniel\LOCALS~1\Temp\92a1_appcompat.txt"
After viewing that I usually just choose not to send the error report and the program then closes on it's own.
I've checked for solutions online and I've noticed a lot of other people seem to have DirectSound issues with Winamp. I checked my Winamp and it works fine. This is the only program I've had this error with. All other sound and music stuff works fine.
Any help in resolving this issue so I can get back to making chiptunes would be stupendously appreciated :)
If you need any more information, let me know. And, as always, thank you in advance!
