|I have the weirdest problem and am hoping someone with a greater mind than mine can help me figure it out.
I am running Windows 7 Home Edition Service Pack 1, Internet Explorer 9.0.8112, and Windows Media player 12.0.7601
Windows Media player will not play .wav files. It will play all other types of audio and video files that I throw at it.
I downloaded the VLC media player[^] and it plays .wav files just fine.
The reason it has become a problem for me is that I am writting a little app the makes use of the PlaySound[^] API to play short .wav files. This API will also not play the .wav files.
Anybody have any ideas where to start looking to solve this problem?
I ended up going into the device manager and unistalling all the audio drivers and then rebooting. Upon reboot the system reinstalled the audio drivers and all is now good.
Dang that was simple, should have done that long ago
