Why did you invent ultimate? What was the point?

    Question

  • What was the point of creating ultimate, if it does not supply things like wave  files?  This is not great business practice.

    What are you talking about? ALL editions of Vista can play WAV files.
    You should repost your problem with a LOT more detail in a more appropriate forum, such as the Vista Multimedia Answers forum here....

  • On the contrary - the WAV format is the default of ALL sounds in Windows - all others formats require decoders which may or may not be included in teh OS.

     

    I suggest that you actually read teh help files included in Media Player, and the OS.

  • If you're talking about using WMA format for saving, it's quite simple - WMA files are compressed in one way or another - and can contain extra information such  as artist and title.

    WAV files are not compressed, and cannot contain such extra information.
