Windows 7: Play Sound(s) on Application(s) Launch

09 Nov 2016   #1

Play Sound(s) on Application(s) Launch

Excuse me Please:

While the title might seem painfully obvious, and in winXP sounds actually did play when an applications were launched.

However, in win7proSP1, it has been noted that regardless of which .wav file is listed in Control Panel/Sound/Sounds tab under Open Program, this OS does NOT play said .wav file.

I have attempted to do searches via Google and here and have only found a reference of the use of a batch file and sndrec32.exe from Windows XP.

It seems sad (but not unsurprising when one considers a certain corporation being averse to accountability) that one has to rebuild functionality.

Is there a way in which one can have x .wav played, either generically when *ANY* executable is manually or automatically launched, or more preferrably, assign x .wav files to y executables?

Thank you kindly for the assistance in this small, but distinct problem.
