Event Sounds Question by JamesJ[_4_]
I assign wav files to system events. Certain ones won't play when when I assign it to the Windows Logon event. It previews fine and plays in Windows Media Player I thought the length was the problem 'cause these wav files are 22 and 24 seconds but I assigned a wav file to the Windows Logon that is 30 seconds and it plays fine. Although the length does have an impact. Any ideas?? James
