DirectSound settings not available

Hi,

I find that some of my virtual machines do not produce any sound. For those
that fail, I find when I click the Advance button in "Sounds and Audio
Devices Properties", I get a pop-up windows that states "DirectSound
settings not available". These failing guests are both Windows 2003
Enterprise Editions running under Windows 2003 Enterprise Editions x64
hosts. I've a working guest Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition under an XP
host.

The Windows 2003 Enterprise Editions x64 hosts also have Vista guests and
they have no problem.

Any idea how this is fixed?

Thanks!

Bob
