I get a random sound once and again on Windows 10!

Post by *druecker »

Hi,

I've installed Total Commander 32+64-bit 9.22a version on my Windows 10 just yesterday, all sounds with windows audio settings relating to TC are set to None, but I do get a sound when copying files for example.

But, I get a random sound once and again, without anything changing anywhere, for example even right now writing this message I got a sound that must come from TC, it's always the same sound, which in windows is called "Windows Background.wav"

I have no idea what's triggering it within TC.

Looking forward to your replies,
Thanks

When exactly do you get a sound when copying? So far I can only reproduce it when aborting the F5 copy dialog with ESC, and only in the 64-bit version.

I use the 64-bit version and it happens when a copying process has been completed, but when TC is minimized and I'm doing something else, it can happen, although since I restarted TC it happens much more rarely now

What is your setting for custom sounds?

TC- Menu -> Configuration -> Options... -> Misc.
Custom Sounds:
[_] Only Play for long operations : > [10]s


If this is checked you will get a confirmation sound at the end of the operation which takes longer than 10 s while TC is in background.
Even if you did not configure a special sound via "Control panel - sound and multimedia section 'Total Commander'"

I have checked it in my code: A foreground operation only creates a sound if one has been configured via
Configuration - Options - Misc.
A background operation creates a default MessageBeep if no sound has been configured.

So there are two ways to prevent a beep after a background operation:
1. Set a high value for "Only Play for long operations"
or
2. Set an empty sound for copy operations.

How did option 1 make it worse? Maybe the operation took longer than 99 seconds?
