    is it possible, somehow, someway, in visual basic or some such business, to write into an html document (to use as desktop) volume controls for all of the sources (ie. master, wave, line in, cd, mic, etc)

    maybe through an .swf even?

    After researching this request I have been informed there isn't a VBSCRIPT (or similar) function that allows you to control volume. However, you can write a simple VBS (using my linking method) to launch the Control Panel sounds and devices applet.

    Simply setup a VBS file (as shown below) and call it through the exec() function.

    Dim objShell
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
    objShell.ControlPanelItem(mmsys.cpl)

    The mmsys.cpl relates to the sound applet. It might need to be surrounded by 'single' or "double" quotes (I forget).

    Good luck.
