I have a server with some applications that need the audio to work.

The problem is that Remote Desktop switches audio driver to "Microsoft Rdp Audio Driver" no matter which choice I make under "Options / Local Resources / Audio".

How can I force Remote Desktop to NOT mess with the audio settings, since "Play on remote computer" does not work.
