Code: [Select]
Did you link the SFML and CRT (c-runtime) libraries correctly?
I think that I linked all correctly.
Other packages of SFML works perfectly, only the dynamic audio library don't work :(

Code: [Select]
You should get used to the debugger...
I will learn to use the debugger ;) :)

Hm... Another idea: Don't download the OpenAL32 runtime, especially not from CreativeLabs. Use the libraries delivered by SFML.
(edited afterwards ;))

I can remember a case where my app froze, too, after a while. It turned out to be a bad DLL version.

Hmm, but the static SFML-audio library uses also OpenAl32 and haven't problems, but I will try to install the newest OpenAl32 runtime.

You must use the DLLs provided in the SFML SDK, not another release (especially from Creative Labs website -- this implementation is buggy, deprecated and not used anymore by SFML).

Oh, thanks for the correction. I received a more reliable impression from the website. :roll:

Anyway, I edited my post not to confuse more users.

I looked at the website, and they talk about OpenAL Soft (which is the one used by SFML). But I don't know if they support/distribute it, or if they just mention it.

I use the DLLs provided in the SFML SDK, but my applications don't work if I use the dynamic SFML-audio library.
With a static build of SFML-audio library I can use the audio-package without problems.
I think it's a bug, because I've got no problems with sounds in older SFML versions.

I think this has to do with the global audio manager, I'll see if I can fix it.

Just did a build of SFML2 on a Windows 7 installation and the same bug happens for me. Is there any update on this one?

(program starts, but windows doesn't open)

Hehe sure: As soon as you link to sfml-audio dynamically (debug or release doesn't matter), then the window doesn't show up/application's not running (I did not throw that in a debugger). You don't even have to use SFML Audio (I mean code-wise), so it might be something while initialisation happens. By the way, the binary is showing up in the task manager, eating 0% CPU power.

Linking statically isn't a problem at all, everything works fine.

I wonder that you don't have that problem. :/ I'm not an expert on programming under Windows (installed MSVC2008 to be able to test that "bug" someone reported on a lib of mine), so maybe I'm missing a setting or something.

But it's still link to sfml-audio, right? I mean, if you unlink sfml-audio.lib then does it work fine?

Ok, so it must really be related to the global audio manager. Too bad...
