how do you know when MB_ICONQUESTION is assigned a wave file or not?    

    try
      MessageBeep(MB_ICONQUESTION);
    except
      Beep;
    end;

the above code does not result a "standard beep" since there is a sound card present but no wave file is assigned to MB_ICONQUESTION ...

thanks

I'm not sure a try -  except will catch the message beep since it does not throw an exception use

if not MessageBeep(MB_ICONQUESTION) then Beep;
