Nice instructable. ... Flogging Molly Right on !
I put the "vista only" in the title because I haven't been able to experiment with other versions of windows. You can probably use it on all versions of windows, using the same principles, but the menu layout might not be the same
do you think this would work on windows 7? <br>
This works in Windows XP (at least) if you go to C:\WINDOWS\Media and delete the sound file you don't wan't and place your new .wav file in the folder. Just make sure that you rename the new file to what you deleted (ie: Windows XP Logon Sound) so the computer recognizes it. Flogging Molly Rocks!
cool! i hadn't really thought of that, even while it's so easy + i love your taste in music (flogging molly all the way)
This will work with most versions of Windows, you shouldn't need to have "Vista only" in the title? L
