No Sound on Virtualbox Windows 7 guest, Solus Linux Host

Case: Windows 7 loads normally under VBox. Sound controls work, etc. Solus 4.2 loads as expected and sound controls work. Solus does not register VirtualBox in the Audio Volume -> Applications tab.

Solution 1

In case your hardware is this year’s or last year’s model:

  1. Settings for the VM guest machine -> Audio tab
  2. Match Host Audio Driver to the audio driver for the host OS. PulseAudio in that case.

Solution 2

Download the most recent version of VirtualBox Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack.
