How to install a driver in a Windows 95 guest machine?

Postby Bopis » 30. Nov 2017, 02:14

Hello,

I have an issue related to video games that I have installed in a Windows 95 virtual machine. The music in them doesn’t work, only the sound effects.
I’ve searched the web for similar issues, and it looks like changing from Soundblaster 16 to ICH AC97 in VirtualBox Settings may be it.

But I don’t know how to install the AC97 driver to the guest machine. I have the installer on the host machine, but how can I make it available on the guest machine?


Thanks in advance.

Greetings.

If you can't get networking between your host and your guest going, the easiest way would be to create an ISO in your host and mount that in your VM. You did not mention your host, so I cannot give you specific advice, search the webs.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
