    Beep Beep !!!


    Is there any way to make a simple bell( Our 'Good Old' beep ) sound in my
    NT/Windows 95 machines in this era of RAD.

    I believe with the advancement of sound cards etc. they removed a simple
    thing out. Right?

    Regs,
    RK.

    That appears to do the same thing as the Beep statement. On my system both
    result in nothing happening because I have the "No Sounds" scheme configured
    in the control panel. I also have the speaker disabled because I despise
    applications that make noise. To force a sound to play on my system the app
    would have to enable the speaker, increase the volume from zero and play a
    WAV or sosme other sound file. Thankfully I haven't run into anything that
    goes that far yet.

    Do you have a sound card? Remove it and try again.

    Do you hear normal beeps (from msgboxes)?
    If no, I'd check it is actually set to make a noise.

    Perhaps, for people like you, I'll have to start using a high ZOrder PictureBox, normally
    invisible, with the word BEEP in large red letters and make it visible for a second or two
    when the Beep should sound. <g>

    Beep activates System Speaker which is a system device. If it doesn't make
    any sound - means it is disabled or no driver installed. Go to Control Panel
    and check your device manager.
