See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Reporting_virtualization_bugs

Please include:

  - The version numbers of virt-manager, libvirt, qemu-kvm
  - ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log
  - /var/log/libvirt/qemu/$guest.log

This is probably caused by sound devices being disabled in the guest if SELinux is enabled in the host:

[adler@office01 ~]$ rpm -q virt-manager  libvirt qemu-kvm
Comment 6 Stephen Adler 2009-07-04 12:18:03 EDT
also, notice in the command line for qemu-kvm, there is no reference to sound hardware.

The virtual setup for the windows guest was created through an upgrade from fc10. I did not create a new virtual guest from scratch and then load the windows OS. That was done when my desktop was running fc10.
Comment 7 Mark McLoughlin 2009-08-07 08:40:48 EDT
Sorry for the delayed response Stephen

This sounds like bug #508317

Because of SELinux, libvirt currently disables sound cards until this feature is implemented:
