Hi all,
This codes work fine with win98, but can't work with Win2000, How to change it? (Please don't just tell me a component, I need the source)


 if BeepOn then        //BeepOn is a logic flag
 begin
 asm
   mov al,3            //turn on the pc speaker
   out $61,al
   mov al,$0B6
   out $43,al
   mov al,200
   out $42,al
   mov al,20
   out $42,al
 end;
 end
 else
 begin
 asm
  mov al,0            //turn off the pc speaker
  out $61,al
 end;
 end;

hello

  I think you can't do that with win2000/xp, cuz it's not allowed you to direct access the hardware

the code which using assemply with ports, doesn't work in any version based on NT, i'm not sure with that also with the PC speaker, but i think it's the same cuz u r using assembly code to access the hardware

Try this:

// Disable Enable:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETBEEP,0,NIL,SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE);
end;


// Enable Beep:
procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SETBEEP,1,NIL,SPIF_SENDWININICHANGE);
end;

Hello!

1)Download the following component:
http://www.torry.net/vcl/system/portaccess/smport.zip

2)Install the component

3)Place the component on the form

4)Put the following code in the formshow event:
SmallPort->OpenDriver;

5)Put the following code in the formclose event:
SmallPort->CloseDriver;

6)Use the following code to turn the pc speaker off:
SmallPort->SpeakerOff;

7)Use the following code to enable the pc and beep the speaker with a specified tone:
SmallPort->SpeakerOn(Tone);

8)Use the following code to enable the pc and beep the speaker with a specified Freq and delay:
SmallPort->Sound(Freq,Delay);

And This will work in all versions of windows.

>Please don't just tell me a component, I need the source

There is no way to accomplish that you want in winnt/win2k/winxp with just using assembly and not using drivers.

This component is free and includes sources for the drivers and the component.  

Good Luck! :-)

Hi freshman,
Why can't install it on Delphi3? The compiler say: SERVICE_KERNEL_DRIVER, SERVICE_DEMAND_START and SERVICE_ERROR_NORMAL are undeclared identifier.

(Should I need to declared some unit on the "use" section??)

Delphi4 not have this problem.

Regards, bin
