Windows 7: Sound events playback don't overlap, causes problem...

Sound events playback don't overlap, causes problem...

Can we allow Windows 7 sound events playback to overlap? If not, can this capability be added in the future? Currently, custom sounds that are long [~1-2+ seconds] are interrupted or don't play in situations where multiple sounds are triggered quickly [such as for menus]. If sound events playback can overlap, this wouldn't be a problem and we would have more choices for custom sound effects.

BTW: I wanted to assign sounds that have an echo effect to sound events but unfortunately these are amongst the longer sounds that don't work properly.

We are not Microsoft, if you want a feature, you need to contact Microsoft direct with your suggestion.

It would take some very custom programming to do what you want.

Issues with sound and playback
About a week ago, I had a problem with sound on my computer. It started off when Windows Media player would not play files on my playlist (This is not a codec problem, I have CCCP installed). It would say: "cannot play the file because there is a problem with your sound device." It would go through...
