Windows XP: How to load and save sound schemes?

Windows users can change the sounds associated with program events using the dialog in Control Panel -> Sound and Audio Properties -> Sounds. Different sounds (or no sound) can be assigned to program events and the sound scheme can be saved.

"Windows XP store its sound scheme in the registry, under

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\APPEVENTS\SCHEMES\APPS

XP also stores her original .wav files for its sounds under C:\Windows\Media (assuming C is your root drive).

Thus, if you want to export this sound scheme for others, I recommend you follow these steps :

Put all your sounds in a single folder, e.g C:\OS_SOUNDS
Use Windows XP Control Panel > Sound and Audio Properties > Sound to configure Windows to use the sounds in C:\OS_SOUNDS
Export the registry key for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\APPEVENTS\SCHEMES\APPS

At this time, if you copy your C:\OS_SOUNDS to another computer (also under the same C:), and import the registry key you have just exported out, your sound scheme will be able to be transferred."
