Fwd: playloudness of audioclip ignored on Windows?

This is still driving me nuts.  I tried setting the overall playloudness, and displaying that value in a field in the standalone.  On Windows it reports 0, but still plays the click at the pre set play loudness level.

Has no one else encountered this or similar?

> This works fine in the ide and in Mac standadalone.  No click, and no lag when the click is needed for real.

> On Windows (10 and Vista tested so far) standalone the click is not muted, but plays at the OS volume setting.
