Check if the file msacm32.drv is present in your Windows system32 folder. If not, copy it from another PC (that has the same version of Windows) and place the file in the system32 folder. This applies to Vista and 7 64Bit but in the SysWOW64 directory which is the folder for the 32 bit programs running on the 32bit virtual machine.

A very common sound problem is an incorrect or missing registry key for msacm32.drv discussed in the preceding.

1.Launch Registry Editor by typing regedit at Run command.

2. Navigate to the following registry key:

For XP and Vista 32Bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionDrivers32

3. On the right pane, and check for existence of “wavemapper” registry subkey, the mail culprit

causing Flash no sound. If not found, create a new String value named “wavemapper”, and give the

entry value “msacm32.drv”. If wavemapper entry is already existed, ensure that its value data

is“msacm32.drv”.

For XP and Vista and 7 64bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionDrivers32

4. On the right pane, and check for existence of “wavemapper” registry subkey, the mail culprit

causing Flash no sound. If not found, create a new String

value named “wavemapper”, and give the entry value “msacm32.drv”.

If wavemapper entry is already existed, ensure that its value data is “msacm32.drv”.

5. In addition the permissions/security on these keys can prevent your browser flash plugin from

accessing them and preventing sound. Also if you receive errors editing or the key is blank you

need to check the permissions by right clicking on the key and choosing permissions. Choose

Advanced and make sure that the Administrators, System, Users Groups have “Full Control” under

permissions if not select them and click Edit and tick “Full Control” under the “Allow” column.
