How do I stop TC from "Dinging" everytime I do something it doesn't like (accidently selecting nothing instead of an object.. just one example).

First thing I do when I buy a new computer is set system sounds to None. That saves being annoyed on a regular basis. I don't know if you can turn program specific sounds off.

I would, by I need an email notification sound when I receive a new email.

If that is the only sound you require you could create a modified sound scheme and turn everything off but the one for email.

TurboCAD makes noise?

It's been years since I've heard the sounds.  I keep my volume turned down.  ;)

I've only ever heard dings when opening a file with 3D text in it.

On one of my computers, one version that I can't remember right now only dinged when I entered negatives in inspector bar boxes, like for shelling direction or copy distance increments.  Worked as it should, but made noise.  Never could figure that one.

re: …only dinged when I entered negatives in inspector bar boxes…

I get that when using the Edit Tool. Negatives values and decimal values (i.e. .375) will trigger the Windows Exclamation.wav. If I write the decimal as "0.375", then it doesn't ding.

Don, you're a genius.  Your suggestion worked perfectly.
