CIPC is a great tool for troubleshooting voice, but it kind of requires a sound card to work, which a VM doesn’t provide and sometimes that’s all you have. To get magic audio inside a VM that has no sound hardware, you can create a virtual sound card. It’s removed from the gui for some reason, but not that difficult. Just RDP to the VM and redirect the audio to your desktop!

Edit the .vmx file and add the following code: (it helps if you’re in notepad++ so the format is right)

sound.present = “TRUE”
sound.allowGuestConnectionControl = “FALSE”
sound.virtualDev = “hdaudio”
sound.fileName = “-1”
sound.autodetect = “TRUE”
