Description dbolton 2013-08-29 16:19:58 CEST
Steps to reproduce:
1. Download and install the latest version of LinuxSampler for Windows (currently this is linuxsampler_20110204_setup.exe )
2. Open JSampler

Expected result: LinuxSampler should start without any errors

Actual result: LinuxSampler/JSampler displays the following error message: "Getting Audio Output Drivers: AudioOutputDeviceAsio: Can't find any card". As far as I can tell, the sampler does not appear to work on Windows.

This is reproduceable every time. I tested on two separate computers (both had Windows 7).

Installing ASIO4ALL and restarting LinuxSampler removes the error:

I suggested creating a more helpful error message. Something like: 
"LinuxSampler cannot find any ASIO-capible sound card.
For consumer audio cards which do not come with their own ASIO drivers install ASIO4ALL to be able to use LinuxSampler with your soundcard. "

Makes sense. Fixed in SVN r2509. Thanks!
