    dlaws: because you did use it wrong. It needs full patch (see picture) or use it as parameter: cax /BEEP
    If you enter in the prompt /BEEP it will search for a executable in the path that is called beep

    If you know how to use ist superb

    Either it needs a bit more instructions or it simply doesn't work. No matter what I enter, I only get an error popup that says 'the system cannot find the file specified'.

    If you're serious about writing powerful batch files, commandiux is a must-have utility. My favorite function is the on-screen display, OSD - you can specify plain text and RTF text, which means you can overlay winword-like, colorful text on your screen! I'm not aware of any other free utility that can do that. I also use it to control my monitor, screensaver and volume level. I start batch files invisibly, without seeing that ugly black DOS-box window. Commandiux can control windows, manage processes, list services and devices, and many more advanced functions. It's too much to describe here - you've got to try it. No installation needed, just run the tiny 100K exe, that's all. On my wish list: the ability to dump info to a text file instead of to its own window.
    Pros: small, powerful, unique functions that are hard to find elsewhere, no installation needed.
    Cons: needs more documentation with examples.

    comment on previous review:
    lacking experience is perhaps a better word. most commandline tools fall under the category "if you don't know how to use it, you probably don't need it".
