Controlling sound in dev env.

P: n/a
I'm not sure if this is the 'right' place to post -- I'm just getting used
to the VB newsgroups, but I need assistance and am hoping I can either get
the assistance or some help in pointing me the right direction.

In any case, I have a basic question regarding the actual development
interface, and in being able to control the sounds.

The example:
I use:
Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, Microsoft Development Environment 2003
..NET Framework 1.1

When I use Search and search for something like "!=", a message comes back
letting me know it isn't found, for lack of a better paraphrase, and it also
produces a loud sound along with this... a warning sound or such.

That sound is something I'd like to be able to turn off. That's what I'd
like to know.
Is anyone able to help me with being able to modify sounds in the
development environment?

Thanks for any help that can be provided!

Have you tried turning down system sound volume and/or the volume on your
speakers? I ask because I use Visual Studio .NET 2003 all the time, and any
sounds it produces are far from loud. I have no problems hearing other
sound.
FYI, another group where you can post IDE questions is:
microsoft.public.vsnet.ide

Go to Start-Settings-Control Panel-Sounds and Audio Devices->Sounds. There
is a section for Microsoft Development Environment. Try toggling the sounds
associated with the events to see if one of them apply to the search dialog.
