Installing Volume Control
Apparently, Volume Control was not installed on my Windows XP. I went to the Sounds and Audio Devices and clicked on the "place an icon on the taskbar". The error message appeared and told me it wasn't installed. How do I install it from my Windows XP CD? Thanks for any help.

Its an SP2 bug I guess.

Put your windows CD in the CDROM
1. Open a command prompt
2. Navigate to the CD-ROM drive by typing

<cd drive letter>:

3. Navigate to the i386 folder by typing

cd i386

4. Expand the sndvol32.ex_ file by typing

expand -r sndvol32.ex_ %systemroot%\system32

pay attention to the spaces and that should do it. reboot...doc

Installing Volume Control
Volume Control was never installed on my computer. SP2 was installed when it was available. Since that is the case, could there be another solution?

What is the exact text of the error message you receive when trying to display the volume icon in the system tray? Is your sound card showing up in device manager without errors? Can you hear sounds on your computer?

Installing Volume Control
The message I get is: Cannot display Volume Control on the taskbar as the Volume Control program has not been installed. To install use Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. It doesn't install as it has never been installed in my computer. Yes, I can hear sounds. Sound card says without errors.

Not sure what you mean by "It doesn't install as it has never been installed in my computer"
Doesn't matter if it was "installed" or not. It's broken. Following the steps outlined by physician or http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;319095 should fix it.

Thank you physician; succinct, to the point, and entirely successful...after 2 hours of fruitless websearching!
Thanks again

installing volume control
Hi, I tried to follow your instructions, but I am getting the impression that after typing d: (CD drive) a black window should be opening. However, the normal Explorer opens and I always get stranded not being able to open an .ex File. I have been trying to get my taskbar icon back and was told that volume control is not installed. I do, however, find a file that, when clicked, opens the volume control panel.

Volume Control install
Regarding my previous problem where the DOS window doesn't open when typing d: (my CD drive) into the run window, I typed cmd instead, which opened the DOS window on C:. I then redirected it with d: and enter. Then I could follow the instructions from Tech Guy. Thanks so much.
