Sound Servo

Hi, When I try to use the sound servo control I get an exception message error,
then ARC crashes. I'm at a loss?

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

Looks like a problem with your soundcard (or more to the point, a bad device ID on the soundcard). It's a windows issue, check your device manager for anything that isn't working properly.

I can confirm that Sound servo works OK in ARC 2013.06.15.00
Thanks for the quick reply,
Device manager reported no errors and the sound card. And it's working. I can play sounds on it?
