When Laplink makes a connection, I hear the sound that Windows makes when an error occurs (referred to as the "Windows Thump"). I have another computer where I hear ascending or descending tones when Laplink connects or disconnects. What can I do to change the sounds?


By default, Laplink sends tones directly to the speaker, and does not use a .wav file. It's unclear as to what causes the Windows Thump to be heard.


Laplink can use any .wav file for the connect or disconnect sounds, so use your creativity. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open C:\Windows\TSI32\LLW\LLW.INI (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Laplink\Laplink Gold\LLW.INI in Windows XP and C:\ProgramData\Laplink Gold\LLW.INI in Windows Vista and 7) in a text editor, such as Notepad.

  2. Locate the [Connection Alarm] section. If it is not present, add it.

  3. Add the following entries to this section:
      Connect Sound File=XXX.wav
      Disconnect Sound File=XXX.wav

  4. Replace XXX with the full path and file name of the sound file you wish to use for each event. For example,
      Connect Sound File=c:\windows\media\chimes.wav

  5. Save the LLW.INI file and restart Laplink.
