vmplayer guest (Win7Pro) stomps on host sound 10.10
Recently, my sound has started acting up. If starting from a fresh boot, (sound apparently working) I start vmplayer and start my win 7 pro 64 bit guest. Alls "good" it starts plays the windows sound. So sound works. I didn't test audio in windows, I dont' have it configured. Now my problem begins when I put windows 7 guest to sleep or shutdown and exit vmplayer.
I no longer have system sounds and audio. I have fiddled around with this and managed to get it working. I think a reboot did eventually bring it back, but that is not a fix. Has anybody else experienced something like this?
