I am trying to fix a bizarre behaviour that causes Windows 2008 to mute an application when playback of a sound is stopped within it. I don't believe the behaviour to be caused by the program itself, since it works fine on Windows XP (which doesn't have per-application volume control) and the program (an obscure DAW) is older than Windows 2008.

I've realized that I don't have any need for per-program volume control on this computer whatsoever, and my question is whether it is possible to turn off per-program volume control entirely? Is there an obscure registry setting somewhere that turns it off?
