Playsound loop not working

I need to play a .wav file over and over again. I am using the
following code.

[DllImport("winm m.dll")]
private static extern bool PlaySound( string lpszName, int hModule, int
dwFlags );

public int SND_ASYNC = 0x0001; // play asynchronously
public int SND_LOOP = 0x0008; // loop the sound until next
PlaySound

PlaySound( wavfile, 0, (SND_ASYNC | SND_LOOP));

But it plays only once and stop. Any idea what's wrong ?

Thanks in advance.

Hello, tamarindm!

Just a hint in .NET 2.0 there is SoundPlayer class,
that can be used to play sounds and internally uses
PlaySound func


tI need to play a .wav file over and over again. I am using the

t[DllImport("winm m.dll")]

tpublic int SND_ASYNC = 0x0001; // play asynchronously
tpublic int SND_LOOP = 0x0008; // loop the sound until next
tPlaySound

tPlaySound( wavfile, 0, (SND_ASYNC | SND_LOOP));

Ummm... Thinking of hack between .Net 1.1 and .Net 2.0....

I am thinking of loading .net 2.0 assembly in .net 1.1

system.dll would be good enough.... not much sure about it....let me
try it....

Thanks

I have a line of code that works when called from a procedure in Access 2.0 form... PlaySound("C:\cr\help\Help0018.wav", 0) I imported what I thought was needed into A97.

Hi, I am trying to use PlaySound in a VC++.net Windows app (VS 2003). I can use it to play a file but now I want to play it from a resource. I have two questions: How do I add a wav file to my project as a resource (steps please) How do I call PlaySound once that I have the wav file as part of the resource.

I found information on PlaySound. I implemented it in my program and it works just dandy. The only little problem is that I have to package the ..wav files and send them along since PlaySound plays a sound file. One of the options I found in a nice description of PlaySound says that there are a couple of other choices. 1) The sound can be in the registry and actually controlled/selected by the end user.

Hi, I have an application that has several forms. Each form acts as a monitor of a gateway system. If the gateway appears to be dead, the application should play a .wav file (not resource) until the user clicks a button to acknowledge the situation. To keep things simple, lets assume there is only one monitor. If I use the old sndPlaySound function, with the code:
