Where are the Vista/Win7 Volume Mixer settings stored?
Windows 7's volume mixer is normally saving the volume levels for individual programs, as long as the exe file doesn't change.
However, for some reason, this functionality stopped working on my computer. Every program is opened at full volume, which is quite unpleasant with my current speaker configuration. If I set this volume and close the program, the next time I open it (no matter of reboot), it will be again at full volume, not remembering my setting.
Is there a setting or a registry key to adjust, to make this functionality work again? Or is the problem related to the place where these settings are saved (wherever that might be)?
(There are other questions around this topic on SU, but none is really about this particular problem, nor seems to give a hint about the issue)
