Migration of Windows 3.x WSS settings Causes OLE Problem

Article ID: 102224

APPLIES TO

SYMPTOMS

After installing Windows NT over an existing Windows 3.x installation that has Windows Sound System (WSS) installed and migrating the Windows 3.x initialization (.INI file) settings, OLE sound operations no longer work.

CAUSE

When WSS is installed under Windows 3.x it changes the default wave file player and recorder for embedded sound objects from Sound Recorder to Quick Recorder. When these settings are migrated into Windows NT, they cause OLE sound operations to fail because Quick Recorder does not run under Windows NT.

RESOLUTION

In order to correct this problem use the following procedure:

  1. Start Registry Editor.
  2. From the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following key:

          SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Embedding
                            
  3. Change the SoundRec value from

    Sound,Sound,C:\SNDSYS\QRECORD.EXE,Picture

    to:

    Sound,Sound,SndRec32.exe,Picture

  4. Go to the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT subtree.
  5. Change the following values

          SoundRec\Protocol\StdExecute\server
          SoundRec\Protocol\StdFileEditing\server
          SoundRec\Shell\open\command
                            

    from

          C:\SNDSYS\QRECORDER.EXE %1
                            

    to:

    SndRec32.exe %1.
