not exactly. The wave mapper itself (dlls/winmm/wavemap/wavemap.c,
function wodGetCaps) does return something.

it's not the default device, it's the mapper. It's up to the mapper to
actually pick up what is supposed to be the default device.
The existing code does (lolvldrv.c, in MMDRV_GetById):
- in the current class of device (in your case wave out), if the ID is
the one of the mapper, and a mapper exists for the class, then use the
device of the mapper as the real device
That's why I suggested that wavemap is more likely to be fixed rather
than winmm itself. I do think that what windows do for
- in winmm, get -1 as the mapper and pass the WODM_GETDEVCAPS to the
- in wavemap, while handling WODM_GETDEVCAPS, pass the message to the
This last part is broken right now (from what you report). It should
then pass the WODM_GETDEVCAPS to the actual default device (it already
does it if first waveOutGetDevCaps is called with a handle and not a
device ID), instead of returning values for the mapper (which is not
