SDL is a cross-platform graphics and sound library commonly used by games. The Windows SDL library contains support for several audio backends, such as "winmm" and "dsound". If the SDL_AUDIODRIVER environment variable is set, then SDL loads the matching backend, or fails if the backend isn't available.


But this creates problems for SDL applications run in Wine. The Windows SDL library loads the Linux SDL_AUDIODRIVER environment variable, which contains "pulse" or some other invalid backend for the Windows SDL library, and so audio fails to initialize in SDL-using Windows applications run through Wine.


Wine's directmusic implementation (dmusic, dmime, dmloader, etc) is very incomplete. If your application uses directmusic for its audio, then it will not play audio. This includes most games made with GameMaker. However, installing both "directmusic" and "dsound" using winetricks should give you working audio.


I had problems with my dsound.dll for some reason. every time I started Spotify (and any other program that used dsound.dll) it would come up with an error message saying that "dsound.dll is not designed to run on windows or contains an error" etc., despite this it had no effect on Spotify but did on other programs. To fix this issue I downloaded a dsound.dll file and replaced my old ones which worked as my other programs are now fine however Spotify won't launch and give me an error message saying "dsound.dll cannot be found, please reinstall this application". I cannot uninstall Spotify as when I try it gives the same error message and when I manually delete the Spotify files and try to reinstall Spotify it fails and the same error message comes up. please help, thanks.
