I could use one of the sounds already configured in the panel; like "Asterisk".

Thank you.

Sure this is possible. You find all the soundfiles at the Windows folder (don`t forget to show the systemfolder "View -> Options").

Then, add a button f. e. and project the function "startprogramm" with the parameters
\Windows\ceplayer.exe
\Windows\xxx.wav

If you click the button the sound will play.

Thank you Sandman for your help.

I have tested this method and there are some points that I would like to improve:

1.the aplication ceplayer.exe is displayed in runtime when the alarm is triggered; I could not make it run in background (should be a setting in windows but I don't know it);

2. when the alarm is acknowledged the player should close (I selected Repeat option in Playback menu).

Best regards.

sir

alarm sound is not getting reset with the reset button.
 
and if the alarm is not getting reset den also only single time sound is produced,and with
the selection of repeat option alarm does not gets mute even after the wmp. gets reset.
