Tutorial: Fix the error “Volume Control Program has not been installed” from Media Blab.com.
This blog entry was gleaned from Jake Ludington’s MediaBlab, a Featured Community Web site on September 22, 2006 .
This error message generally means the application that controls volume in Windows, sndvol32.exe, is corrupt rather than uninstalled. There isn't a clear reason why this happens, although there have been cases where third party drivers from soundcard manufacturers completely damage the entire Windows volume control setup.
