    Thanks for pointing that out, entropy1963.

    In addition to exporting the key mentioned above in my previous post, you should also export the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Names

    Alternatively, simply export the full key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes to get it all in one file.

    If you want a specific theme, then you can use the information in my earlier post https://www.sevenforums.com/1005759-post5.html and save the data for that specific theme. You would then also need to export the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\AppEvents\Schemes\Names\<SoundSchemeName>

    Where <SoundSchemeName> is again the name of the scheme.

    Here are a couple of other keys that you should also save the data for.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\MuiCache\290\52C64B7E]
    "@mmres.dll,-8XX"="<SoundSchemeName>"
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\MuiCache\290\52C64B7E]
    "@mmres.dll,-8XX"="<SoundSchemeName>"
    Where XX is a numerical value dependant on the scheme. For example, the scheme No Sounds is represented by 01. If it is an existing scheme, you will need to check the registry for the value of XX. For schemes that you create yourself, XX can take a value from 23 - 99, although you should generally start with the next available which will initially be 23.

    Changing sounds not working


    I've tried everything listed on this forum to change my sounds, but it's not working.

    I have downloaded custom sounds, unblocked them, and even tried going into regedit to change the event sounds on my laptop, but nothing is happening. When I try to test the sounds, it's silent. With the normal windows sounds it works just fine, but not my custom sounds.

    Is there a specific size or any other thing I'm missing here?

    Hello Dragonfly, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It may be something with how the .wav file that you downloaded was created or encoded as to why it's not working. I don't know the specifics, but you may not be able to use them.

    When I originally posted in this forum, I had inadvertently set the playback in Sounds> Playback devices> Speakers> Advanced> Default format> bit-rate to 24-bit 48,000. As such, the .wav files I was trying to play were not formatted for such a high bit-rate/frequency. When I went back to 24-bit, 44,100, the sound scheme played fine.

    Is there a way to change the initial windows 7 sound. That default tune windows 7 plays when you are at the ctrl+alt+del screen just before you enter your password?

    I have changed the sound theme's already but want to get rid or change that default tune.
