Window Live Mail won't play the wav file of my choice for email notification. I am talking about wav files that I have copied to the Windows/Media folder to use for my email notifications.
I have WLM set to play sounds and in fact it plays all of the wav files that came with the system. But when I copy my own .wav files to the same folder that holds the other wav files that are used for windows sounds and then try to use that file for email notification it won't play. The wav file does play in Windows Media Player if I click on just the file, but not in WLM as my email notification. I have set the option in the Control Panel under windows sounds for email notification. I have tried this with two different wav files and neither one will play as my email notification but play fine by themselves.
Does anyone know why my wav files will not play as my email notification in WLM? Once again I have set WLM to play sounds and the Control Panel/Change System Sounds options for email notification to my wav file and the native wav files do play.
