VBEEP on 64-bit

Code:
     _x64: 1
   _admin: 1
_elevated: 1

TCC  26.02.43 x64   Windows 10 [Version 10.0.18363.1198]

In the help for VBEEP, it says;
Code:
64-bit versions of Windows do not support the frequency/duration syntax of VBEEP.

It seems to start working, though, at the 38 Hz level. Example;
Code:
vbeep 38 15

Also, pre-defined sounds seem to play in the middle of the command. That is;
Code:
vbeep 0 120 asterisk
plays the asterisk sound half way through the duration.

If this is valid, adding the info to the help file would be appreciated.

I think you're getting 2 VBEEPs, a silent one and then the asterisk one. Here, "vbeep 0 120 asterisk" lasts 13 seconds (234 eighteenths of a second).

This one is odd: "vbeep 0 120 asterisk 0 120". I get a 6.5 sec silent visual beep, then a 6.5 sec visual beep that starts with the asterisk sound, then a 6.5 sec visual beep together with 6.5 sec of 120 hertz.

As Vince said, you're getting two VBEEP's (which is what you asked for). Since you didn't specify a frequency/duration for the asterisk, VBEEP used the previous duration value (120).
