After queuing the sound, the MessageBeep function returns control to the calling function and plays the sound
asynchronously. If it cannot play the specified alert sound, MessageBeep attempts to play the system default
sound. If it cannot play the system default sound, the function produces a standard beep sound through the
computer speaker.
