Sound in Pidgin

I am trying to change a default sound in Pidgin.

Running Windows 7, Pidgin 2.10.9


I went to Tools > Preferences > Sounds > 

Enable sounds is set to Always

Sound Event > Message received begins conversation is checked "on".

I want to change the sound for this event.

I put my preferred sound in the \pidgin\purple folder the purple folder, found the preferred sound.Preview plays the default sound, not my new sound.  How do I change the default sound?


Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?
