"Can not rename original file, Saving cancelled"
The Tutorial is great, and highly recommended,
but i had further problems, which i will address here,
and which i have now found solutions for:
My preference is to use the Resource Hacker option,
but there are some important points:
I hope this solution finally brings an end to something that Microsoft should never have taken away from us: the Right to set our own sound files.
Microsoft is saying: this is Our program so we want you to use our own signature tune -
That there are so many threads on the net people asking How can they change this, would suggest, it's a restriction people don't like.
Why was it OK for older versions of Windows to have an option to change the Starup sound, but not Vista, onwards?
P.S. My first sortie changing out the imageres file using Bitdefender Shredder and a program called Eraser resulted in my Startup Welcome being corrupted, and being unable to display the Windows log-on screen.
If you suffer this, insert your original OS disc, set to run-at-bootup, and Select Repair OS without loss or change to any personal files.
(System restore or Restore to an earlier Successful working point, didn't have any effect)
Happy Startup !
