Driver shiproom measure for IAudioClient::Initialize success on the audio driver being flighted

Published Sep 23 2019 04:10 PM 1,169 Views

Audio drivers have long been measured using IAudioClient::Initialize success rate:

Some systems have more than one audio driver on them; for example, you could have a Bluetooth audio device, an HDMI or DisplayPort audio device, and built-in speakers all on the same system, all running different drivers.

The Windows audio team has created a new version of the IAudioClient::Initialize measure which limits itself to audio streams on the driver being flighted. It is currently being evaluated and will be used to make accept/reject decisions starting October 15th 2019.
If your audio driver fails this measure, please work with your audio IHV to get a fix for the IAudioClient::Initialize failure in question.
