[chuck-users] Problems with running ChucK in terminal (Windows 7 64-bit): no sound!

I misspoke, I wasn't running as admin, I was running as a user (but with full privileges).  It is strange about the sound card, I agree..  I figured if anything it would be a much better solution than my on-board audio.  Perhaps I'll try to figure it out over the Summer when I've got a little time to spare. :)  I still get some strange output using ChucK -v --loop in Windows but it all seems to resolve itself and it works, considerably better than it did on my previous installation.  I don't know why, but as I'm sure many of you know, sometimes the best route is to start from scratch with a fresh install.  BTW, as far as Linux is concerned, ChucK utilizing JACK built from source is AWESOME.  Works amazingly well, and the Linux environs just feel better when working in a terminal, although I don't use Mac so I can't compare the two.  Now, if only someone would port Cinder to Linux I wouldn't have to use ChucK on Windows at all...:)

Great! The state of Linux drivers has generally been improving in the
past few years, I think largely thanks to standardised devices, but
that's not much help if you want it on Windows :-).

It's still odd that the one card wouldn't work. You mentioned running
as Admin, is
 that because you like to or is that needed? If it is
needed that should probably be in the docs. Personally I don't think
that is a very good sollution, but at least it is a sollution.
