Beep doesn't work with windows 7?

17 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I started using a script that normally works fine on a xp or vista machine, now on a windows 7 pc and the beep doesn't make any sound. Tried it on another windows 7 pc, same thing, does anyone know if it's not possible or how to make it work on win 7? The beep sound is an extremely important part of my script and to be unable to use it on updated machines is a bit poor.

Beep is disabled because most machines no longer have internal speakers. If you must have an audible response, play a sound file.

Is there something under help about how to play a sound file?

Yes. AutoIt has a function called SoundPlay.

1) please wait 24 hours to bump a post, not 1.

2) Beep() works on mine, it's just that it doesn't use the internal speaker, it plays a windows sound.


For those who are asking questions, look in the help file first. I'm tired of people asking stupid questions about how to do things when 10 seconds in the help file could solve their problem.[quote name='JRowe' date='24 January 2010 - 05:58 PM' timestamp='1264381100' post='766337'][quote name='beerman' date='24 January 2010 - 03:28 PM' timestamp='1264372082' post='766300']They already have a punishment system for abuse.[/quote]... and his his name is Valik.[/quote]www.minikori.com

I find that odd, I use beep, and it does work. It just comes out the speakers instead.

EDIT: missed Minikori's post, my bad.

I don't think beep() should be removed. If it works for some, then leave it. And maby ammend the help file with "It comes out on speakers in win 7"

Better yet, it should be specified that 64 bit versions of Windows Vista and Windows 7 do not support the Beep function.

What’s up with the Beep driver in Windows 7?

"Earlier today, someone asked me why 64bit versions of windows don’t support the internal PC speaker beeps. The answer is somewhat complicated and ends up being an interesting intersection between a host of conflicting tensions in the PC ecosystem..."

For some reason I find it to be, in lack of a better expression, shallow.

It's subjective unelaborative impression, nothing else. I expected more.

Subjective from the writer's point of view or Microsoft's?
