VISTA & sndvol32.exe

Wspr looks for sndvol32.exe on startup.
Unfortunately Vista does not have this file.
It is called sndvol.exe, it is the volume mixer.
So I went to the system32 folder and copied sndvol.exe
to my desktop, then pressed F2 and renamed it.
Calling it what Wspr looks for, sndvol32.exe, I then moved it into system32 folder.

Now when I run WSPR and in the setup menu ask for Rx volume control, it is displayed.
It wasn't available before.
Same for Tx volume control, which appears only during transmit.
I love Vista, it protects my computer from all those web malware artifacts.
