	You are right.  This is a bug.  When a guide is loaded, the 
opening script on its first page is not run.
	Please load the enclosed file to fix this bug.
	Record the sound you want and put it into the sound library. 
Get a viewer on the page (not the book) of the first page of your 
guide.  Make a script.  In the script, play the sound.  Press and 
hold the trigger name (normal) until you get a menu.  (The trigger 
button is just to the right of the clock in the script header.) 
Choose "opening".
	Save your project.  Drop it into the folder locale/en/Quickguides.
	(Remove all other things you tried in order to get sound upon opening.)
