BACKENDS: WIN32 - Games force-close on machine without soundcard

Reported by: jeditobe Owned by: SupSuper
Priority: normal Component: Port: Win32
Version: Keywords: Windows XP
Cc: Game: Beneath a Steel Sky

Description (last modified by jeditobe)

Games force-close on the Windows machine without a soundcard.
Affected versions of ScummVM are 2.1.0, 2.1.1, 2.1.2, and even dev-version 2.2.0

Game force-closes together with ScummVM and without any error message, windows just disappear.

Games tested:

  1. GOG version of Beneath a steel sky 1.0 (20270)
  2. The Legend of Kyrandia 1 (CD DOS)

Both games do force-close after the game's intro.

All tests were made on Windows XP Sp3 inside of Virtual Box 5.2.18

I do not see the way to completely disable the processing of the sound in ScummVM via its graphical interface.
