You know what? I thought about what I dashed off after I wrote it and thought that's wrong. Beep should work in a preOpenStack. So, I tested it. It doesn't work. In fact, beep doesn't work on my Vista machine in 2.9, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0, even in a button or from the message box. But, it does work in 2.8.1, in a button and preOpenStack and message box. Can anyone confirm this?
