problem LISTING to  WAV FILES

Document Created: 3/25/2011

After countless hours on researching a problem for one of our customer we have finnally fixed it and  wanted to share this fix with the world.  

THE PROBLEM
A customer brought to my attention where they were unable to play WAV files that once worked on Windows XP computers but not on Windows 7 computers. I must comfess, this issue plagued me for horus and I did Google and Bing Search this and went through countless of technical forums and this is a VERY common problem from the sound of it.

In a nut shell there was a packaged component with Windows XP called True Speech Codec which apparently was removed from Windows 7 (sorry I don’t have a Windows Vista machine to test this on).

So now for the good news, you get the missing component with the download link below which I hope fixes the problem for you as it did me. Best of luck and I'm happy you found this page if it helped
