By default, Windows Server 2003 (and Windows XP) does not sound an alarm when it detects an application error.

To configure it manually:

1. Start / Run / drwtsn32 / OK.

2. Check the Sound Notification box, which un-dims the Wave File text box.

3. If you do not configure the Wave File box, two standard beeps will be sounded. Otherwise, Browse to the WAV file you desire, select it, and press Open.

4. Press OK.

To configure Sound Notification via the registry:

1. Open a CMD.EXE window.

2. Type REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DrWatson /V SoundNotification /T REG_DWORD /F /D 1 and press Enter.

3. If you wish it to play a WAV file, use a command similar to the following, and press Enter:

REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DrWatson /V WaveFile /F /D "%SystemRoot%\Media\Windows XP Notify.wav"
