BillP's WinPatrol Toolkit
« on: March 12, 2015, 02:12:02 PM »
The latest innovation from Bill Pytolvany was inspired by a WinPatrol user whose vision is impaired to the extent that the person is considered legally blind.  As a result, Bill created the WinPatrol Toolkit to provide the ability to assign sound files to WinPatrol notifications of system changes. 

If you would prefer to add your own sound waves as to the WinPatrol Toolkit, all you need to do is search your system for .wav files and copy the file to the C:\Program Files (x86)\BillP Studios\BillP's WinPatrol Toolkit folder.

As an added bonus, the WinPatrol Toolkit includes an easy way to change the WinPatrol icon in the system tray instead of using the method I provided in How to Change Scotty's System Tray Icon.

Note:  This is a priliminary program and more will be added based on your feedback.

BillP's WinPatrol Toolkit is available from http://billp.com/
Direct download link:  BillP's WinPatrol Toolkit
