I have lost the ability to control sound from a sound control on the task bar. The machine tells me I need to install a file and I believe it to be sndvol32.exe I have evidence that the file has been on the machine but its not there now. I run Windows XP Pro and have looked at the installation disc but I cant find it there. I have an on board sound card SoundMax. There is also one other niggle. When I plug a microphone into the mike socket at the back of the machine and try to get it to work via Sound Forge. Zilch, silence, nothing.
Can Anyone help?

You should be able to extract it from the system CAB file WIN_17.CAB or just drag and drop it to the C:\Windows folder.

If you have no sound control/mixer you won't be able to enable/disable the mike or other sections.

vmt for that. I have done a search for WIN_17.CAB and came up with nothing then i did a search on *.CAB and there was no WIN_17.CAB file to be seen.
