When you attempt to save a sound using the Sound Recorder tool, you may receive the following error message:

Cannot open "drive:\path\wavefile.wav"


This behavior can occur if the file you want to use is currently selected in Windows Explorer and Web View is enabled.


To resolve this behavior, click to select a different file in Windows Explorer or click Save As on the File menu to save the file using a different file name.
