I skipped other code .. just showing sound initialization. If I run it I get the InitializeSoundEngine failed ! from the main function.
I just run to cursor and I put a Breakpoint to line where start's with XAudio2Create function... and says the XAudio->lpVtbl is nullptr // <Unable to read the memory>..
What am I doing wrong.. ? I just follow the MSDN how to create sound with XAudio2 and following the instruction.. seems I'm not doing something..
Any Help.. please ?
If any other code needed I can share..
Your InitializeSoundEngine function is doing a lot of internal error checking. Narrow it down so that you know at which exact call Result becomes a value other than S_OK.
If I run it I get the InitializeSoundEngine failed ! from the main function.
Maybe it failed because a required .dll (like Windows.Media.Audio.dll) could not be found. Or maybe your sound card does not support Direct Sound.

See:

I'm using XAudio2 library as my sound for the project.


For your project... any reason not to use MF? (Microsoft Media Foundation)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/medfound/microsoft-media-foundation-sdk

XAudio is low level API, and MF is higher level.
