I just ran into the same fun with OpenAL trying to get Futuremark's 3DMark06 to run again with Win 8.1 64-bit. FOR EVERYONE you want the OpenAL installer DAlancool linked to ( http://support.focus-home.fr/oalinst.exe ) because it's actually newer version (126.96.36.199) than the one commonly linked to for instance DeMignon (188.8.131.52) - or at least the installer is newer (check Properties > Details on the oainst.exe).
DeMignon: This one should be trustworthy enough ;-)
184.108.40.206 failed, 220.127.116.11 worked. So if you can DeMignon you may want to update the one offered from the gog support link. Hope this helps others.
