Windows 7, having a problem getting Mixer to work

Post by CD Tom » Sat Jun 06, 2009 7:36 am

I'm testing the new Windows 7, and was trying the Audio Mixer v2.471 that I have on my XP machine. I run into the problem when recording it give an error message "there was a problem launching Window's mixer. Please use Add/Remove in the control panels to add the volume control component and then try this again". I can't seem to find the Volume control component in the control panel. I don't know if this is a Audio Mixer problem or Windows 7. If anybody is using this in 7 I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

Yes, Microsoft changed the location and/or name of the windows mixer executable file in Vista and newer. You could launch it from the windows system tray, or you could try Mixcraft which does not have this problem.
Mixcraft is available here
