I seem to recall Microsoft provided a sound driver for the PC speaker that allowed it to play .WAV files.  It didn't sound very good and consumed significant CPU cycles to do so, but it did work.

I want it so I can have my office computers play a .WAV file when someone gets mail in Pegasus email.  It has a "play sound on mail receipt" option but only plays .WAVs.

Thanks, cmcgee!  That driver works fine.  Sorry for the long delay in responding; got busy with other higher priority stuff.
