Note This default behavior may change in a later version of the product.
UserOnly the volume control on the local Windows CE-based device affects the volume of the Windows Logon .wav file when you establish an RDP connection. To avoid this behavior, use one of the following methods:
- In Control Panel on the remote system to which you are connecting, disable the Windows Logon sound . You may have to connect to the remote system one time to do this.
- In Control Panel on the Windows CE-based device, use Volume Control to set the volume of the Windows CE client to a lower level before you log on to the remote system.
OEMWarning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
OEMs can avoid this behavior by specifying the initial volume through the registry on the Windows CE-based device. An OEM can set the initial volume by adding or modifying the following registry key:
"Volume"=dword:33333333 ; 0=off, 0xFFFFFFFF=maximum
Note This volume control for the remote session does not control the initial volume of the Windows Logon .wav file.
