¶VirtualDub's "Windows Mixer" menu option is broken in Windows Vista/7
I've been kind of avoiding blogging because lately it seems to end up being a multi-hour process whenever I do it, but this time I've got something quick.
In VirtualDub's capture mode, the Capture | Windows Mixer menu option doesn't work if you're running under Windows Vista or Windows 7. The reason is that this command tries to launch sndvol32.exe, and that program no longer exists under newer versions of Windows. The new mixer app is sndvol.exe, but it doesn't accept the same command-line arguments and doesn't seem to have any recording routing functionality at all.
If you're hitting this problem, go to Control Panel | Sound | Recording in Windows and change the recording settings there. In the future, VirtualDub will launch this tab instead on Vista or newer versions of Windows.
