Windows 7: Possible To Import Vista Sound Scheme Into W7?

13 Feb 2009   #11

Win 7 Ult SP1/Win 10 Pro (all x64)

That's OK the Bluetooth issue is easily fixed. I just find Windows has some very strange quirks.

It's like when I installed my TV Tuner the first time my webcam had to be reinstalled...LOL.

Thanks Dwarf, I was wanting that one myself, my work around was to save all the default sound files to a different folder and then just replace them with the tinker ones, your way works much better.

In Vista Ultimate, browse to the following location:


Right click on the sub-folder Schemes and Copy this folder to a USB memory stick.

In Windows 7, browse to the same location and Paste the folder that you previously saved to the USB memory stick. When you have finished, the above mentioned location will contain a folder Schemes with 3 sub-folders, viz Glass, Pearl, and Tinker.

Extract the following registry file and click on it to merge it into the registry.

That's it.
I wonder if this would work for 10? Both my 10's were upgrades and it was working in the lower OS.
Here's a pic of the Win 10 Windows\Media folder contents: (Note NO Schemes sub-folder, glass pearl and tinker were simply dropped in there by me, but in Win 10 none of those others are available either.)

Yes, it works for Windows 10 as fact that reg file enabled all the stored media files, I now have dozens of sound schemes to choose from. I'll post that fact over there.
