Some applications for Win95/Win98/winNT4.0 do not produce sound under Win2000! (I have Soundblaster! Live Player 1024, properly installed)
These 32-bit programs are intended to work even under WinNT4.0, but under Win2000 (SP2) everything works except sound...
Are there patches or additional updates (drivers or other software) to solve this? For instance, is it possible to access and tune up the Win95 compatibility layer? What about installing drivers for Win95/98?
Note: Dual booting seems a rather 'poor' solution for me, same for migrating to XP.
