Windows XP Sound Recorder (sndrec32.exe) Download
click here to download sndrec32.exe from Windows XP. Once you've downloaded the file, navigate to it and right click > properties > compatibility tab > [check] Run this program in compatability mode for: [drop down] Windows XP > OK. To run thie first time go ahead and right click again and choose Run As Adminstrator. Before you do all that scan it with an up-to-date virus scanner because you really shouldn't ever be doing what I just told you to do unless you trust the source implicitly.
Executive summary : Honest good clean file, no bugs! :)
The full story : During the installation and configuration of new phone systems at work we needed an audio file transcoded to the format that Panasonic wanted (specs at bottom). After some research I came to the conclusion that I needed a copy of sndrec32.exe from Windows XP since the Sound Recorder in Windows 7 was unable to do the transcoding (nor was Audacity if you're looking to go that route). Had a hard time finding a copy of sndrec32.exe that I could feel good about double clicking so when I did get a copy I thought I would upload it for others having the same requirements. Enjoy.
