I'm not sure, but it has played the sound when Arts was off.  Anyways, 
I've not gotten a chance ot play with this since then, as the user has 
been hogging his computer. :)   I could've sworn I disabled Arts before 
my last attempt, but sure enough, it was running after checking a few 
things.  I might get a stab at it before the week is out.

Thanks for everyone's help thus far
