Mushclient is running fine on my Windows 7 machine. I bought a new Win10 computer and I can't get triggers to play sounds. I'm wondering if this is because Win10 uses Groove? If I uninstall Groove will this fix my problem? I've tried both Mush 4.94 and 5.03.

I am not familiar with Groove, so I can't say.

However only certain sound files can be played, especially using the Sound function (which is also used by triggers). See:


Also, you might need to check that you gave a full pathname to that sound, or placed it into the "sounds" folder, in which case you don't need the full pathname.

Try entering scripting Immediate window (Ctrl+I) and typing this and then Run:

check (PlaySound (0, "YOURFILENAME.wav"))

The error message you get (if any) may help narrow down the problem.

I have not heard any complaints from Aardwolf players about sounds not playing in Windows 10, so it's probably something specific to your system or what sounds you're trying to play.

One thing everyone with a problem should try, though, is updating to the very latest version, and 5.03 is not it. Run the 5.06 installer from https://mushclient.com/forum/?id=14437 and then after the install, replace the MUSHclient.exe with the 5.07-pre one from https://github.com/nickgammon/mushclient/releases/download/latest_commit/MUSHclient.exe
