    Who uses BEEP anymore?

    MS-DOS is dead. Deal with it.

      PB uses Beep
      Purpose Sound a tone through the computer's speaker.

      Syntax BEEP

      Remarks BEEP plays the default Windows waveform sound, typically a ¼ second tone, through either the built-in speaker; or a sound card if installed (in which case the Windows "Default Beep" sound is played). The Default Beep can be configured in the Sounds section of Control Panel.
      Did you check the setting for Default Beep in the Control Panel?
      Your example plays OK on my machine - PBWIN 9.00 - Win32Api 27 January 2005 - XP Pro SP2

      I like to use WinBeep (e.g. "WinBeep 800, 50") myself - though I believe it may be broken in Vista.

          Yes (just now). Default is set to "Ding.Wav", which exists (and plays).

          Not mine though.

          I use it too. Just thought I'd try Beep just in case it might cause some consternation somewhere (and it did {grin}) I'll try your settings. Have to be better than mine (1000, 100).

              The problem is probably in my machine (Dell XPS 710) Beep produces nothng, neither does MessageBeep. WinBeep works fine though.

                Well that answers my question before I asked it..(Whether or Not computers even had a "Mini-Speaker" that would beep boop to make a sound these days)

                  Dell XPS Machines

                  There are problems with compatibility with the XPS Dell machines this is only 1 of the many issues. I have read about them recently with others having M$ compatibility problems but only with the XPS line of Dell Machines.

                  Just Info I read ... I guess u could GOOOOOGLLLLLLEEEE IT!

                    Did some poking around with dependance walker..
                    Looks like PB's Beep is a wrapper for MessageBeep(-1)

                    Code:
                     
                      WinBeep 800, 50   'KERNEL32.DLL - Beep()
                      Beep              'USER32.DLL - MessageBeep() - default beep
                      MessageBeep -1    'USER32.DLL - MessageBeep() - default beep

                      Maybe this will work. (Because "?" doesn't exist, default sound should play)
                      Code:
                      Sub PlayDefaultSound
                        SndPlaySound  "?", ByVal 0
                      End Sub
                      Regards,

                        I can add that BEEP calls the USER32 MessageBeep and does so with beeptype 0 (%MB_OK).

                          MessageBeep() always worked on my Dell XPS running Win/98. (XPS 400 series, ca. 1999)
