95-style Volume Control for 98?

Acer / EXTENSA 501DX

Specs: Windows 98 SE, Intel Pentium MMX 266 MHz/128 MB
Windows 95's Volume Control program has a little volume meter in the "Wave" control that moves up and down when sound is played. This volume meter is not present in the wave control for Windows 98, or any other version of Windows for that matter.

I have tried replacing the Volume Control program (SNDVOL32.EXE) in my 98 install with one from a 95 install, but that didn't work.

Does anyone know how I could get the Wave volume meter in the Volume Control for 98?

Thanks in advance,
-Trent

I don't remember that one. Could that have been something that was added with 95 Plus! or some third party software?

Yeah, I just cranked up a 95 machine and it had nothing like that on it so it's got to be some added software. You might get some info by right clicking on it and seeing what it says. It may have been provided by the sound card manufacturer. In the old days they often included media rack software.

If you can't find out anything, I uploaded willow pond's media rack software here:

and it should be at least close to what you are looking for.

If you do download it's usually easiest to use the 'view a series of ads' option. Then when the new ad appears just click the 'no thanks' at the bottom right corner of the page. After about 5 or 6 you'll get to the download.

Sounds (pardon the pun) like something from the older ESS Audiodrive application that came with most of their cards. I'd agree with DAVE, may be something that could be in his upload on Driversguide, or found somewhere else there as well...

Thanks for the replies!

Well, I never thought of that, but the Windows 95 install that I saw the volume meter on did have Microsoft Plus! 95 installed.

I'll have to try that Willow Pond's software. :)
