Before upgrading Windows Media Player, opening Photoshop 5 or 6 produced a pleasant shutter release sound.  Now it only happens with Photoshop 5.  Any way to restore this action for Photoshop 6 ?

Adobe says the sound is not part of their product.

It probably isn't. It is part of the multimedia sounds in windows.
Go to control panel - sounds
And check the sounds events. Opem program and similar.
If it is defined OK, then it is a photoshp 6 problem.

I hope this helps !

From looking at the sound events connected with Photoshop 5 you should be able to see what .wav file is connected to opening the program.  If you cannot see a way of doing a similar thing for version 6, then you might try this free program, called JustAddWavs:

http://www.justaddwavs.com/jaddwavs.zip
Just Add Wavs is a sound utility application that is capable of associating Windows sound events to a specified application. Some of the features of Just Add Wavs are listed as follows:
Sound Event Association: Can select from 12 Windows system sound events that can be added to a specified application. These events include Asterisk, Close Program, Critical Stop, Exclamation, Maximize, Menu Command, Menu Popup, Minimize, Open Program, Question, Restore Down, and Restore Up.
Sound Schemes: Ability to create, modify, and remove sound schemes using Just Add Wavs
Application Events Editing: Can add or remove an application's assigned sound events
Wav Preview: Wavs files can be previewed for easy selection
Just Add Wavs adds variety to the system defined sound events by making those events unique to your applications and enhancing your computing experience.

I went to the control panel and sounds and assigned a utopia minimize(shutter release sound) sound to Open Program. This did not work very well, because when booting up the sound happens often, and seems ridiculous.

So I returned to the sound section of control panel and reassigned None for Open Program.

Now, low and behold, when I open Photoshop 6, the familiar, beloved shutter sound has returned.  I don't know what happened, but I'm happy it's working again!

Thanks all, Larry

Weird !!

Apparently the two sounds were conflicting with each other !!
