Error Messages When Installing Sound Impression


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation version 3.1
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server, version 3.1


Sound Impressions is a 16-bit Windows-based application that provides multimedia functionality (Wave, MIDI, CD Audio) through a graphical interface that emulates a home stereo rack system. The application is often bundled with sound cards and multimedia upgrade kits, such as the MediaVision Pro Studio 16 sound card. When you perform the Setup for this application under Windows NT, you may receive error messages or warnings because the application expects a Windows 3.1 environment.

During the installation for Sound Impressions, a 'System Status Report' is generated by the Setup application. If you install Sound Impressions under Windows NT, then a report similar to the following may be produced:

System Status Report:

Setup has compiled a list of system
configuration items for your review.

Items that may not be in accordance
with Sound Impressions requirements
or merit a cautionary note are preceded
by a series of stars (****).

Double-click on any item for more
information. To proceed with Setup,
click Continue or press ESC.

To quit Setup, choose close from the
Control Box (upper left corner) or
press ALT, SPACEBAR, C or ALT+F4.

        • MIDI driver not detected
        • Multimedia Timer not detected
        • Permanent Swap File not found
        • Arial is not on your fonts list
        • 32-bit Disk Access is off"

Subsequent to receiving this status screen, the Setup application should continue without error. Sound Impressions components (Wave, MIDI, and CD Audio) should work without errors in Windows NT. However, a second CD-ROM drive may not be recognized by Sound Impressions. These warnings displayed by the Setup application are caused by the expectation that the environment is Windows 3.1. Sound Impressions is manufactured by Dennis James McMahon and distributed by Media Vision, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
