No, You can't put the start sound that xp used at start up. I like the
sound start up for windows 7. Does ten have that same sound at start up like
you would in 7?

Hi Carlos,


Yes, you are right. For sentimental reason, I kept an old XP SP3
system--mostly for storage and because I finagled a way to play some DOS
games on it through the command line structure. But just this past
week, the old faithful gave up the ghost: some sort of motherboard issue
as well as a shaky hard drive. So I decided to replace it with a
reconditioned Windows 7 Home Premium system for about $125 plus tax. I
am used to having tons of back-ups in the event of a calamity so I am
comfortable with 3 computers: my 2 Windows 8 systems (one to be upgraded
shortly to ten or when I get the nerve) and the old XP system, now to be
replaced with the Windows 7 reconditioned box. Oh for the tragedy of
not hearing that old XP boot sound! I know you can configure the new
system with the old sounds--but just like dating a blonde you really
liked and then when she dumps you dating another blonde; it's really not
quite the same <laugh>!


...And so it goes.

Hello:

The newer the PC/machine; the less problems are encountered with
new software!

At some point some NVDA users will be hit with the reality that
Windows XP has lived a very very long life and wants to retire/be left
alone!

There are a number of charitable organizations/groups that sell
rebuilt PC's at economical prices that at least run Windows 7.

There are a number of software developers that warn customers that
their software no longer will support vintage PC's!

So, if users insist on continued usage of old PC's/machines. Then
don't complain/whine when operating systems/software does not run
correctly on your machines!

Yes! I do sound like an old curmudgeon! And, I'm very proud to
represent my age group! (55 Years and above)

This goes along with my last post labeled NVDA devils advocate.
Over the last few days, I've noticed a lot of people pointing out
issues with the latest version of NVDA.
For a little perspective, how many people are not having these issues.
So far, everything has worked fine for me.
Is there any one else that is not having any problems with NVDA 2016.2?
