Annoying wav/guage file

Jan,I have finally found some time to troubleshoot the problem. I found out that I have this mannoying wav file even when using the default 777 with the stock panel. Sooo.....My assumption is that it must be an overwritten default guage. Does this sound right?? Would it be possible to locate the guage cab on the installation cd's? Does anyone know where they are located? I really don't want to do a complete reinstall. Does anyone have any ideas??Thanks,Mike

Well I found the guages, unzipped them, and put them into my guage folder, overwriting them all. It did not help. I still have that file. I can't think of what to do next. Has anyone ever run into this before?Mike

Hi Mike,Don't know if you are still around or if you already fixed this one- but I had it too. Just fixed the bugger this morning. Look in your sound folder for a .wav called newwind.wav. This annoying file was included in the "ultimate default B737" aircraft I dl'd from avsim. If you did the same, you will need to edit your sound.cfg file for the b737 and replace the newwind.wav file with the default c5wind3.wav file.Good luck and happy simmingGary
