    i dont know if anybody else misses just having sndrec32.exe being associated with .wav files, but i sure as heck do. Now, either WinAmp or Mediaplayer 7 steals .wav files no matter what i do. Every time i manually go and make .wav files associated with sndrec32.exe....IT GETS [email protected][email protected][email protected][email protected]! Can anyone PLEASE tell me how to get the file to STAY with sndrec32.exe and also play when the file is opened, not just open and sit there. Thanks SOOOO much if you can figure this out for me

    Go to Folder Options>file Types Scroll To Wav Sound.

    Actions box Play >>>>edit Application used to perform action
    C:\WINDOWS\Sndrec32.exe /play

    In the actions box be sure to click on Play and hit the Default button to set play as default.

    If you want the player to close after the sound is finished add a space/close



    C:\WINDOWS\Sndrec32.exe /play /close



    Associations not sticking? I don't know for sure. Have you gone into the software and unchecked the boxes for wav in the format file associations?
