Hello Astrum, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Not sure if that would be startup sound in the MS theme, but instead the Windows Logon sound. Did you have your logoff sound set for the Windows Logoff sound?

i did set them both the log in and the log off sound.. the themepack i attach on my previous comment must have them... did it not? i cnt seem to find the solution and i made sure the length of the wav to be below 5 seconds. edited them using audacity...

Astrum,

Your log off an log on sound played just fine for me when I installed your themepack. The log on sound is not the same as the startup sound though.

im sorry for not explaining from beginning.. when i log off my computer, the sound is there but when i shut down the computer the sound should also be played, right? because the computer is logging off before shutting down.. but, in my case it didnt. when i used the halo reach themepack, the sound played perfectly.. where did i screw up, really...? the same case applied to the log in sound.. and may i ask where should i ask for .dll files related problems? thank you very much in advance....

Astrum,

No problem.

It doesn't use the log off sound for shut down. For shut down, you would want to set a sound for the Exit Windows sound instead.

You're most welcome. Unfortunately, the only way to change the startup sound (not the same as log on) is using the method in the tutorial. I'm not aware of a way to include it in a themepack. The work hack is misleading though since you're just using a resource editor to change what startup sound file is referenced in the dll file instead.

Hello Derfuhrer,

I'm doing well. I hope you are as well.

From your last post below, that could be used as another option, but I prefer the way in the tutorial.
