Yes, Server 2008 not R2. So the problem could show up with Windows Vista too, but I no longer have Vista installed on native hardware to check.

I'm using VirtualBox with emulated HD Audio controller. In Device Manager it says the Microsoft HD Audio driver is used:
Driver Provider: Microsoft
Driver Date: 21/06/2006
Driver Version: 6.0.6002.18005

Worth noting, there is very high audio latency which is probably due to VirtualBox's emulation of the hardware. E.g. with sound playing, after pressing F12 it takes about a second for the sound to stop playing. But that may not be relevant to this problem.

I also tried with the VM configured for emulated AC97 sound hardware. That shows up as "Intel(r) 82801AA AC'97 Audio Controller" in device manager, uses a Microsoft driver too. With that starting emulation with WASAPI shared audio causes WinUAE to hang immediately. Exclusive does work OK.

If you feel like testing this yourself in a Vista VM (and don't have one already) I could upload the Vista VM which was formerly available from
