Upgrade your old sound scheme with the new Windows Vista sounds...
Including MSN / WLM messenger sounds

I chose not to make an SFX archive or installer, so you can include it on your UA media the way YOU prefere.

Installation guidelines:
1. Place the Media folder in %systemroot%.
2. Apply the included VistaSounds.reg.

Ps. The system audiofiles are named in Norwegian. If you would like to rename them you must also rename in the VistaSounds.reg file, however this is NOT necessary...

That link doesn't work, but I already have the English soundscheme.
So I made a pack with the sounds and I created a working good .reg file, now everyone here can ENJOY!


edit: nope, I get: Not Found
The requested URL /msfn/VistaScheme.zip was not found on this server.

But I already had english version and I am uploading my pack with .reg file now :)

Windows Vista Soundscheme

[ DOWNLOAD ]

The .reg file renames the Default Soundscheme to "Windows Vista" & modifies it with the Vista sounds.
It will also set the Windows Vista soundscheme as the current one to be used.



download the file, the Media folder belongs in the Windows directory.
Add the .reg file to your general regtweaks.reg (runned @T12) file for uA install.

Note: the hkey_current_user will be tweaked, this only works for all users when applied during T12.

Please download again!
The previous .reg file DID create the Default soundscheme (=called Windows Vista) , but it also applied "NO soundscheme" as the current scheme, instead of the Default soundscheme.
I'm sure it works now, will test tomorrow. Enjoy.

Previous version was downloaded 16 times.

Unfortunately, whatever regtweak I try, the Soundscheme is CREATED, and can be selected, but for newly created users, no soundscheme is selected (not even "No sounds"), I still have to select the soundscheme manually..
very annoying, tried regshot but didn't help.

@owikh84 If you want to put it into an unattended CD, why not put the sounds in the $OEM$\$$\Media folder. Apply the reg file, go to the sounds setting on ctrl panel, select the Vista Sounds scheme. Then, right click desktop, click properties and save the theme in $OEM$\$$\Resources\Themes
BTW if you use a theme or different cursors, you have to copy your whole %systemroot%\Resources\Themes into $OEM$\$$\Resources\Themes and your whole %systemroot%\Cursors into $OEM$\$$\Cursors

One question, how do you set the reg file to install in HKLM instead of HKCU? Do the keys in LM and CU correspond to each other? Because then I can just change everywhere it says hklm to hkcu...

<edit> sorry, just noticed that the regfile also updates hkey_users... oops.

Windows Vista Soundscheme (updated)
[ DOWNLOAD ]
Updated: now contains 32 Vista sounds + fixed the .reg file.

The .reg file renames the Default Soundscheme to "Windows Vista" & modifies it with the Vista sounds filenames.
It will also set the Windows Vista soundscheme as the current & default one to be used.


download the file, the Media folder belongs in the Windows directory.
Add the .reg file to your general regtweaks.reg (runned @T12) file for uA install.

Note: the hkey_current_user will be tweaked, this only works for all users when applied during T13.



Possible errors:
I still get the original XP sounds!
SOLUTION: open your .theme file, remove the part containing the soundscheme.
You'll find your .theme file in the $OEM$\$$\Resources because you placed it there.
Make sure you do this for ALL themes you include on your CD.

All sounds work but I don't have Startup/Shutdown sound.
SOLUTION: this has nothing to do with the Vista Soundscheme/pack. You shouldn't remove Windows Beep with nLite.

Since a .cab add-on is an inefficient method for this task I cannot recommend it. Add the Media folder to 1 general 7z file and add the reg-entries to your existing regtweaks.reg. That's the fastest and most efficient method.
