Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home SP3 Full Version OEM for PC
Problem: Lost My Sound Volume Control in Windows XP?
Did a Search, Windows Can't Find the Folder SndVol32.exe. I Located the Program on My XP/SP2 CD (SndVol32.ex_) apparently a Compressed Folder. I Tried to Initiate a "Expand" Command in DOS, so I could install into Windows/System32 as a ".EXE", But I can't seem to get it to do that. HELP. Is there a "Work-around" for this?
My OS: Windows XP Home Ed./SP3
My CD: Windows XP Home Ed./SP2
Have you tried to copy the compressed folder from the disc to your computer desktop and open it there? Give that a try and see if it works.... I have had this happen to a couple customers at work and I just copied the folder from the disc onto the desktop, opened it there and re-installed it. Or you could also try a repair install of the OS but it does carry the possibility of losing your data and programs.
