[open] Back-end error

edited April 2013 in OpenSesame

I am trying to edit an experiment file in a different computer and the experiment stops working based on this error:

Failed to call openexp._canvas.xpyriment.init_display()

Error: DirectSoundCreate: No audio device found

How can I solve this issue?

    Hi Frank,

    PyGame (which is used by OpenSesame) requires an audio card (even when you don't actually use audio), so chances are that the computer either doesn't have an audio card at all, or the audio drivers don't work properly. In the first case the solution would be to physically add an audio card, in the second you could consult Google about drivers for your specific audio card.

    Hope this is of any use!


    There's much bigger issues in the world, I know. But I first have to take care of the world I know.
