  1. Hi

    I am looking a way to play a sound file, in this instance WAV file constantly after boot up or login

    I have disabled windows sound login and added nnnn.WAV in the startup folder.

    It plays and loops fine but pops up with the Windows Media Player, in this case.

    I want it to continue playing but silent mode without Windows Media Player popping up.

    I have seen HTML TAGS to do it, maybe do it that way and exec it from bat or vbs file on startup of

    pc/laptop

    Thanks in advance

    If you cant find a better way, maybe rename the standard login sound as mmm.old and replace it with your wav file, then re-enable standard windows sounds.

    Thanks for that

    Tried that already and only plays one run of the sound file and does not repeat the loop.

    I created a sound file, but instead of repeating it and making file enormous, I just edited the sound file with a start and end cue in the file making it loop at a few KB's

    Any other ideas would be appreciated

    Thanks
