There is a folder called waves.  The new sounds are just other wave files.  They are placed in a folder with the same name in the same location as the old waves file now is.

I'm running a installed version. They are still in my downloaded folder.
Are you saying they go where all the Windows event wav

  sounds are?

It may depend on whether you are running an installed or a portable
version of the program, where you would put the files. I’ll write
more about the portable version if people are interested in another
message but you either back up the original waves folder or delete it,
create another folder called waves and place the files in that or, if
the download you got has the files already in a folder called waves,
paste that folder in the same place as the old waves folder was.
That’s true of both the installed and portable versions but the waves
folder may be in a different place, I’m not sure.
To backup the old waves file, change its name to something like waves
old, that’s all you have to do.  You can leave the folder where it is.

I'd also like to know.  There should have been a text file stating what
to do with them.
