Unable to initialize XAudio 2

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I installed the Snes9X in my computer which has the windows operating system. I am getting this error message whenever I open the Snes9X. I have DirectX in my system but I am not sure about the version. What is DirectX? Where I can download the DirectX? Please guide me to find the solution. Thanks.

Unable to initialize XAudio2. You will not be able to hear any sound effects or music while playing.

It is usually caused by not having a recent DirectX release installed.

DirectX is one of the greatest products introduced by Microsoft. This DirectX has made gaming even more enjoyable with awesome graphics and speed. Though this is powerful, this is totally free and that’s the reason of its popularity.

Every PC must have DirectX runtime installed in order to run programs that are developed using DirectX. Download the latest DirectX Runtime. Run the “Setup.exe”. Make sure that your PC doesn’t interrupt the internet connection.

Now, run XAudio. This should work fine.
