Windows 7: no sound wav message arrival (microsoft outlook 2010)

18 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
no sound wav message arrival (microsoft outlook 2010)

I have downloaded my own sounds to try and change for Microsoft Outlook 2010 e-mail arrival and none of them seemed to be working.

I followed what was stated here.

I ticked "message arrival', restarted Outlook, tried to e-mail myself. No sound
Un-ticked it, restarted outlook, tried to e-mail myself. No sound.

And then it I decided to try something, I went back to Sounds & "Test" play sound, the sound file doesn't seem to play at all, but it plays on Winamp & VLC.

Also, it seems to work perfectly on Mozilla Thunderbird (I'll uninstall when I get the sound working)

I wonder what went wrong?

edit : i got it working after finding a sound converter to re-convert it, somehow even though it was .wav file, it wasn't compatible with outlook
