    Default OpenAL sound device and driver

    My software uses OpenAL and it runs fine on most PCs but on vista in Parallels 7 (Mac Book Air), it fails to find any device.
    Specifically, this line returns NULL:

    device = alcOpenDevice(NULL);

    I've tried both "parallels audio controller" and "Intel sound driver", none of them fixes this issue.
    Is there a 3rd party sound driver that works with OpenAL and vista in parallels that will remedy this issue.

    Thanks,

    Default

    To answer my own question, must deploy OpenAL redistributable which falls back to a software-based OpenAL device to play sound, if it couldn't find any compatible hardware device.
