First post so don't be too harsh if I get it completly wrong.
Can you not save your wav to ..\windows\media.. . Then go through control panel\sounds and audio devices... . Click the sound tab, scroll through program events til you see Windows start, click browse and then nav to your saved wav file.
Hope this helps again if I am wrong I apologise but gotta start somewhere.
Best 'o' luck
I am trying to change the Start Windows sound in the sound scheme. I downloaded a fanfare i wanted to use and changed it to a WAV file, but when Windows starts, i only get the first note, about half a second. When I click on the sound in the change sounds in sounds and audio device properties, it plays fine!!! Can anyone help please?
