Vista Annoyance: Beep Service!

July 14th, 2009

So I’m having applications of mine beep at random times. Actually, they are both compilers for embedded systems. When I click on a file in IAR and using AVR Studio the computer beeps. It’s really annoying, and it seems to have started on its own as the applications didn’t do that in the past. Well, it seems as if this is a feature. Windows includes a BEEP SERVICE! *grumble* You can find it under the system devices menu if you select view->show all. I turned disabled it and I think that fixed my problem. Whoever came up with that idea needs to be shot till he/she is dead.

UPDATE: this in fact has not solved the beeping problem I experience from using IAR Embedded Workbench. But I am still disabling the beep server.
