Hi

I am using win 7 pro (86) RTM and having two audio hardware devices.
So what i want to do is to set different applications to play audio on different devices. Is that possible?
I remembered I was able to do that in vista. and that was awesome !!. I googled but no avail. If anyone has some answer please share

Thanks

Yes it works the same way in Win 7 as it did in Vista. Your application will need to be able to specify the output device to use.

to slightly hijack the thread, does Windows 7 put the audio device asleep when it's not in use? I notice sometimes there is a lag of about 3 seconds to fire up the sound when it's used for the first time in a while.
