Teradici Virtual Audio Driver 1.2.2 Release Notes¶
The Teradici Virtual Audio Driver 1.2.2 is a maintenance release. The driver comes as a component within the PCoIP Component Installer. The Teradici's virtual audio driver provides bi-directional analog and locally terminated USB audio support for virtual desktops using PCoIP Software such as VMware Horizon.
- Added support for installation on VMware Horizon versions newer than 7.5.1.
Installs on systems with the VMware View Agent 4.5 or newer.
PCoIP Component Installer (file version 184.108.40.206303) used to install Teradici Virtual Audio Driver 1.2.0 but did not support VMware Horizon versions newer than 7.5.1. The component installer has now been updated to version 220.127.116.11313 which supports VMware Horizon greater than 7.5.1. See knowledge base article How do I determine the Teradici Audio Driver or PCoIP Component Installer Version? (1348) to help determine the installer file version number deployed in your environment.
Is verified on the following virtual desktop OS:
- Microsoft Windows 7 32-bit
- Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit
- Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit
- Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit
Works with the following clients:
- PCoIP Zero Clients with firmware 3.2.x or newer (for a list of zero clients see https://teradici.com/product-finder/zero-clients)
- Windows-based VMware Horizon (View) 4.5+ Clients with audio enabled
- Note Linux-based VMware Horizon (View) Clients support audio output, but do not support analog audio input (this requires audio input support in the View Linux client, please contact VMware if you are interested in this capability).
The PCoIP component installer includes:
- Teradici PCoIP Component Installer version 18.104.22.168313
- Teradici virtual audio driver 22.214.171.12470
- WHQL signed driver that provides additional functionality of analog audio input on the client.
- This driver supersedes the VMware Virtual Audio Driver (DevTap) that is provided with the VMware Horizon (View) 4.5+ installer.
- This is for installations on VMware Horizon (View) virtual machines only (not for installation on VMware Horizon Clients)
Fixes a problem where the audio driver would not install on VMware Horizon releases newer than 7.5.1.¶
No sound after installation¶
If the Teradici Virtual Audio Driver and the VMware Virtual Audio (DevTap) Driver are installed on the same virtual desktop, and the VMware audio driver is selected as the default device, you will not get any sound.
Workaround: Ensure that the Teradici Virtual Audio Driver is selected as the default driver in the Playback tab of the Control Panel Sound dialog.
