If the sound files for Windows for Workgroups are on a network drive, the Startup or Exit system sounds, which are assigned in the Sound section of Control Panel, may not play when you start or exit Windows for Workgroups.


The network redirector may not be active during the startup or exit of Windows for Workgroups.


Startup and Exit sounds should be placed on a local drive. Any other system sound files can be placed on a network share.


On an installation created by SETUP /N on a Microsoft LAN Manager or Windows for Workgroups server, the Startup and Exit sounds do work correctly; this is because the real mode redirector is active.

On an installation created by SETUP /N on a Novell server, the sounds work only if they are located on the Novell server. This is because MSIPX, not the real mode redirector, is loaded.
