This article applies to:
This bug was introduced in E-Prime 3.0 (126.96.36.199).
This bug has been corrected in E-Prime 3.0 Update 2 (188.8.131.52)
When an E-Prime experiment specification file (.es3) is opened in E-Prime, the Windows Ding sound plays multiple times.
As each object in the experiment specification file is loaded into E-Studio, the Windows Ding sound plays. For experiments with large numbers of objects, the repetitive "dinging" can be distracting. This issue is restricted to experiment authoring sessions; the Windows Ding sound is not played when an experiment is run.
Update to E-Prime 184.108.40.206 (Update 2) or later.
This workaround is intended only for those users who are unable to update to the E-Prime version that contains the bug fix.
Turn the master volume on your computer off while you load an experiment specification file into E-Studio. Make sure, however, to turn the master volume back on after the experiment is loaded.
