Are you also annoyed by the Beep in Dynamics-NAV ?

Whenever a message (dialog box) is shown in Dynamics-NAV or an error occurs then you hear a beep sound. When giving a demo to a prospect or when working in Dynamics-NAV this can become very anoying. Especially when working with a Virtual PC this happens a lot.

A couple of weeks ago one of the students in a training I was delivering asked if it was possible to stop Dynamics-NAV from beeping. And yes, it is possible.

What you should know is that the beeping is in fact a service that can be stopped. There are 3 ways to achieve this.

1) Turn off the beep sound on a particular virtual machine:

  • On the virtual machine, click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
  • Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Beep
  • In the right pane, right-click Start, and then click Modify.
  • In the Value data box, type 4 to turn off the beep sound, and then click OK.
  • Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the virtual machine.

2) Turn off the Beep service:

  • Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
    sc config beep start= disabled
  • To turn the beep sound back on, type the sc config beep start= command together with one of the following startup types: boot, system, auto, demand

3) Stop the Beep service:

You can stop the Beep service by using the Net command. However, in this scenario, the service automatically restarts when you restart the virtual machine or when you restart the host computer.

  • To stop the Beep service, type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER: net stop beep
  • To start the Beep service, type the following command, and then press ENTER: net start beep


I'm looking for a similar trick to set a different font set in the CAL editor

Do you know how ?

Forget that question about the RSS feed. It's just that Internet Explorer does not detect the feed automatically but if I manually add the feed and point it to then it works fine.

Some good stuff on this blog. I wanted to subscribe to it but there is no RSS feed. Any chance you could set one up easily?
