Start Up WAV Problems

I have Windows XP Professional and I cannot get the start up WAV file to play any more than a few seconds. (Once the icons come up, it quits.)

I had a favorite song that I though I'd lost (2'45" long) that really puts me in the mood to work. I found it and loaded it in and only get about the first 15 - 20 seconds then it quits.

It plays OK on my Windows XP Home, but not on XP Pro. Any advise?

Actuallyt that's a known limitation of the startup wave.

The good news is that's not a bug. Workaround? Put it in your startup group.

Known Limitation

Is the known limitation only on XP Pro? If so, I'd just as soon use XP Home....If I can find a copy.

I leave it to you to research this a bit more. It's a known limit so no fix but to toss it into the startup group.

My Thanks.

I've never put something like that in the startup group. I'll give it a go.

Thank you for the advise.
