what is the device when started in VBox

When installing in VBox, it asks about installing of two drivers - one is for soundcard and the other is unknown, so what is that device ?

This is a special virtualbox device. Installing guest additions fixes the issue. I guess it is made to process special I/O with the host.

I wonder if someone tested it extensively with reactos though (meaning, see if it initializes and does its job as a good boy). I think this would require a debug build of it.

EDIT : typos :?

Vbox code is available, you are free to compile it and provide debug version.

I tried once, and it is a eral pain in the ***
Might be simpler with msvc though, so I should give it a try.
