    What platform and version of VirtualBox are you running? This is a known issue with VirtualBox 5 and Windows 10.

    Thanks @MarkSimpson Windows 8.1 VirtualBox 4.3.30 (downloaded 4.3.28 via XAP 0.5.6 and upgraded to 4.3.30, both not working)

    My motherboard is gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming GT. Audio driver is Realtek HD audio

    I also installed win10 as a guest with the same VB and there sound IS working

    @zahikramer Thanks for logging that. As I said earlier, it was an issue that as known about with Windows 10 as a host, but not earlier versions. It will be investigated

    I run OS X primarily and it works there, but I run Windows 7 AMD64 on another machine. That is running XAP 0.4.4 and VirtualBox 5.0.2. I've just tested that and sound is working there.

    I have also tested the Windows 10 machine. It is running XAP 0.5.6 and VirtualBox 5.0.2, tested using a KitKat Nexus 4 image and that works also.

    I've been using the ringtone picker to generate the test sound.

    Can you tell me Mark what are the settings on your VB audio as in this pic:

    ICH A97 on both systems where it is working. If I change it to Intel HD Audio then it stops working.

    Did you system default Intel HD Audio on that dropdown, what else is listed?

    No. I think the default was like yours. there are 3 choices : Intel HD audio, ICH A97 and SoundBlaster 16

    I assume ICH A97 doesn't work on your system?

    No. But as i understand , ICH A97 or the other settings of this category "Audio Controller" are for the guest system. It simulate the audio driver for the guest. The Host audio driver is the important one (if i understand correctly)

    Problem Resolved. https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=33721

    You should run XAP on Normal mode and NOT on Elevated mode (with Administrator rights)
