Sound Recorder Sndrec32.exe In 64-Bit Windows 7
» Does Windows XP's Sound Recorder utility [sndrec32.exe] work in 64-bit Windows 7?
Windows Sound Recorder is a simple audio recording utility included with all versions of the Microsoft Windows Operating System published since 1995. It hasn't changed over the years, so this tutorial should be accurate no matter what version of Windows you are running.
After installing Sound Recorder, use it to record your voice for Distance Learning courses, such as Spanish 101 and Spanish 102. You can save the recorded files and send them as e-mail attachments. To do this, your computer must have a sound card (most do) and a you'll need a headset/microphone to plug into your computer. Other features of Sound Recorder include simple editing, mixing, and adding effects to sound files with ease. Let your imagination and creativity loose to create your own sound effects.
Viruses(such as TrojanClicker:MSIL/Keywsec.A) often reside to .exe files, which are then re-named to resemble common software packages. They can be running in the background, infecting or compromising the computer. After being cleaned by the anti malware software, your system has become messed up in the .exe file system, some .dll files can’t be found when you start a program or even the system. To solve this kind of issue, DLL Suite is created with one of its special tool called "Fix EXE Virus", which is specially targeted to fix virus infection problems, such as slow PC performance and system crash raised by virus. You just click this menu and click in Scan button, you’ll have faster pc and restore the performance.

You cannot use Windows XP sound recorder utility in Windows 7.
Hope this information is helpful.
- PATRICK LUCIER replied on January 22, 2013: » I'm familiar with the Sound Recorder utility in Windows 7. I wasn't able to play sounds with it, only record sounds. I also checked out the Preview pane for playing sounds, but it invokes Windows Media Player, which I'm trying to avoid doing.
XMPlay is an excellent and very lightweight .wav player. It starts almost instantly. XMPlay is now my default .wav player, replacing Sound Recorder (sndrec32.exe) in earlier versions of Windows.

It's a quick way for me to convert wav file clips into ringtones by using the delete before and delete after edit options, as well as controlling the volume levels.
- WILLWAM WUORI replied on January 26, 2013: » I feel the same as KimberlieMc83does. Did Microsoft go crazy? I constantly have to download new utilities and modify registry because the same amenities I had in Windows XP are gone in Windows7, all thanks to the implementation of the interface and applications of Vista. Thankfully it's still Windows and I can modify the living heck out of it. I like that.
Now as for the sound recorder or sndrec32.exe. I have XP installed on my computer as well as 7 and I tried opening the file, but it said "Sound recoder cannot record or play back because a sound device is not installed. To install a sound device, go to Control Panel, click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Add Hardware".
I'd have done that if that was the issue. I have sound, sndrec32 just doesn't recognize that I do.
