Angry Birds Direct X issue

I just downloaded angry birds, but keep getting this error:


DirectSoundCreate8 failed



I know its because I don't have a sound device, but I don't really need one on this computer.  I'd like to play the game.  Is there any way to override this so it works on a computer without a sound device?

    Please note that the Angry Birds app is not written or developed by Intel. The Angry Birds app is developed by Rovio ( Intel provides the Intel AppUp(SM) center for customers to download apps to run on their netbooks or PCs, and for developers to sell or distribute their apps such as Rovio does with Angry Birds. However, Intel does not have access to the software code for apps and cannot make changes to the app, fix problems with the app, or enhance the app. If the app is not running and you would like to troubleshoot an app issue, please contact the app developer. For Angry Birds, you can contact the Rovio support team by sending an email to
