You can create the directory where ever you want it.  You tell Writelog
about the directory with a writelog.ini entry.  See ini file options:
RecordingLocation is where WriteLog saves WAV files on Tools
Continuously Record Audio.


(But it could be some other drive/directory if you choose.)

You need to check your Windows sound settings by double clicking the
speaker icon in the sys tray.  You need to check both recording and
playback options.  In your setup, you need to make sure that your mic
input (for recording) is SELECTED (not muted).  I send my audio to the
soundcard via the LINE IN connector, and it is SELECTED (not muted).

After doing all of this, I can't get mine to work either, so please
share your experience.  After a few RTTY QSOs, when I right click on the
log entry to play back the audio, there's not much in the indicated
directory, and nothing plays back.

Any help appreciated!  73
