[Linrad] Linrad says No Soundcard Detected

Hi All,

I was playing around with an 'extra' computer today that happens to have 
32 bit Windows 7 installed [7600.16385.x86fre.win7_rtm090713-1255].

When I try to run Linrad 03.08 [stock pre-compiled version, installed 
directly from the zip file on Leif's Linrad HomePage] I get the message 
"No soundcard detected" upon typing "U" to set up the soundcards.

This computer has a Core2Duo Intel Atom D945GCLF2D motherboard with 
onboard sound and the RealTek High Definition Audio sound driver.  It 
does not have another soundcard installed.  The onboard sound works fine 
for other apps, and the RealTek High Definition Audio sound driver shows 
up fine under the Device Manager 'Sound, Video, and Game Controllers' 
heading.  Clicking on the device listing to determine the device status 
gives the indication that 'The device is working properly', which it is 
for other applications and Windows Sound.  I didn't have this problem 
[that I recall] when I used this same motherboard with Windows XP.  I 
can't go back and check that right now, however.

I am primarily using the computer with HPSDR hardware and PowerSDR, but 
I wanted to run Linrad as well, as I need a very sensitive waterfall for 
the application I have in mind, and Linrad has the best there is in this 

I am sure this problem must be a Windows thing [or, alternatively, a 
stupid-operator thing] and not a Linrad thing, and I notice that others 
are happily using Linrad and Windows 7.  So I am hoping someone else had 
this problem and solved it.

Any thoughts anyone?

Thanks in advance, and


Roger Rehr
