Sound Schemes » Altering, etc. (XP Professional)

    So… I've been trying to do something on XP Pro, that I know I've done before
    with no great difficulty on XP Home: that is, change a couple of the sound
    scheme settings — specifically, the "Windows Logoff" and "Windows Logon"
    settings.

    On XP Home, I recall having to go into the "Sounds and Audio Devices
    Properties" dialogue and selecting the desired item (e.g., Windows Logoff)
    and then using the [Browse] button to find the desired .wav file. I can do
    that, and I can check that I have the correct .wav file by clicking the [>]
    button. So far, so good… But when I actually Logoff/on, I don't get the
    newly selected .wav files.

    I've even renamed the desired .wav files to "Windows Logoff(/on)" and placed
    them in the default directory {‹root_drive›\Windows\Media} and tested them
    with the [>] button. And that works (as one would expect)… But again, when
    I logoff and logon, I still get the default Win logoff/on .wav file sounds.

    Obviously, I'm missing something basic here… just can't figure out what that
    is. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Thanks.

    Color me stymied,

    Did you save the sound scheme after you'd modified it?
