play sound is an API function . It is in the user32.dll file so you do a
platfom invocation to call it . to do so , you use the DLLImport attribute
with the relative arguments , then define the function as external . once
you have done so , you can use it from your code while passing to it the
file that you want to play
here is an exmple code of a c# program that show who
to use this function
First include this namespace
using System.Runtime. InteropServices ;

then define the import attribute and the extern function as
follows ( you can do that any where in your program )
[DllImport("winm m.dll", EntryPoint="Pla ySound")]
public static extern bool PlaySound_DllIm port(string
pszSound,IntPtr hmod ,int fdwSound );
define its pram and use it as follows
bool result;
System.IntPtr resourceHandle = System.IntPtr.Z ero;
result = PlaySound_DllIm port("c:\\somef ile.mpc3",resou rceHandle,0);

you can read more about the function on the msdn online site
hope that would help

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. However, running it is unsuccessful. I get an error saying "file mmsystem not found". I think I've violated some API call protocol.

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.

I'm using the first code sample below to play WAV files stored as embedded resources. For some reason I *occasionally* get scratching and crackling. I'm using a couple WAVs that ship with Windows, and they play fine outside of my app. This code works, but has the random "scratching" problem: private static void PlayResource(string audioRes) { // Get the resource into a stream
