I recently reinstalled my Windows 7 OS.    All went went w/ the re-installation except that I have some issues w/ my sounds (i.e., certain software such as Quicken does not play sounds any longer).

Please see attached document.   Below is a quick summary:
- Quicken sounds only play on the internal (mono) speakers.   They do not play on the (now) default external speakers though.
- Alternatively, there are no issues with Windows sounds (playing on external speakers).

After the reinstall, I did install some sound drivers... maybe it was the wrong one though.

Any suggestions w/ fixing the Quicken sounds (on external speakers)?

Thanks,
EEH

Quicken is like QuickBooks here, I think. That is, Quicken will use the Windows sound structure.

Find the correct audio driver for your specific computer and operating system. The manufacturer should have the driver on their support site.

Download the driver, uninstall the current audio driver, restart and install the newly downloaded driver.

In the control panel, sound, select the "Sounds" tab. Check whether there is a section for your software "Quicken", and if there is, you should be able to associate what sound plays for which event. If there is no such section, open Quicken and there look for settings you can change. You can probably enable sounds there somewhere.

John -- thanks... I'll look into that.   Appreciate the feedback.

Rindi -- please see the attachment.   It illustrates what you recommended.   That's the issue.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Also look in your sounds (Control Panel, Sound). You should see the Quicken sounds just like below. If they are there, make sure they are enabled.
