You did an amazing work in creating the automatic "installer"...it was so cumbersome to set the sounds one by one...

The sounds files will work in 8, but the installation instructions are for XP only. You will have to register each 7 sound file individually "by hand" in 8 and then save the sound theme.

Tkanks you! All Sounds Win7?

Yes, all sounds found in Windows 7 are there. But only those Win 7 sound files that are applicable to XP are mapped to XP system files. You need to manually map the remaining files if you want to use them.
