Good Morning,

I downloaded today the stable version of mushclient 5.06

I used wizard plugin to get msp.xml

I put mud sound folder in downloads.

I used the computer path copy to do set_msp_path
"C:\Users\sarata\Downloads\sound"

It points exactly at the sound files according to the echo.

I have windows 11, I assume the sound drivers are better than direct x but I downloaded them anyway.

But I only hear the error beep message.

Thank you!

Wow, now I got some sound working again. I'll re-read to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Ok, I tried for a few days now and can't get it working.

Not sure what is different now, followed the instructions from the other post.

Installed msp_lua and sound_file_redirector put my sound files in
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\sounds"

I get no sounds.

I've tried using set_msp_path to that location it still doesn't play sounds, but it says msp path is "C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\sounds".

Also something odd has happened
I have installed MUSHclient in a few different places trying to get it to work C:MUSH, C:ProgramFiles, etc. I unisintalled those versions however now when I save world it doesn't show up at C:Program Files (x86 ) MUSHclient worlds

Maybe uninstall doesn't remove the database and it still points world to place where MUSHclient was previously?

MUSHclient will not work correctly from Program Files or any other directory protected by Windows's access control mechanism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Account_Control), because MUSHclient writes files to its own directory, and that gets blocked by the system (I suppose unless you always run MUSHclient as Administrator).

There have been a number of threads scattered around the forum about this over the years. See e.g. https://www.mushclient.com/forum/bbshowpost.php?bbsubject_id=14704

We generally recommend installing somewhere that isn't locked down, like your Desktop or My Documents.

Thanks Fiendish, I've been away for many years didn't catch those posts. I moved it to My Documents

C:\Users\vlada\OneDrive\Documents\MUSHclient

Still no sounds though.

Anything else I can check? I must be missing something that maybe changed like windows security issues. Because msp used to work fine on mush client. It still works with zmud.

Whew! I'm glad you got it working. These file protection issues have been a plague for years.
