Register your program's sounds in the Windows Sounds registry. Doing so
allows the Windows Vista volume mixer to add a slider for your program.
Register your program's custom sound events. Doing so allows the Windows
Sound control panel item to display them. Create the following key for each
custom sound event: HKEY_CURRENT_USER | AppEvents | Event Labels | EventName
= Event Name. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa511278.aspx
