Solution: Windows 8 Consumer Preview - Sound is not working?

If you are getting errors like 1297, and Windows Audio service unable to start, the problem is solved by fixing security group policy. The original solution was offered by MSDN user JW412 and works great! Thanks, JW412!

The only problem is that the user's posted parameters out of order. The usage with correct command line parameters is as follows:

secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose
