Even disabling the host beep service (Computer > Manage > Device Manager > Non-Plug and Play Drivers > Beep > Stop) does not stop the guest OS from beeping on the host when clicking around a messageBox to change focus for example.

Even adding headphones does not prevent the beep from happening.

How do I mute it ?
