PlaySound - problems

Post by Pong » Sun, 26 Oct 2008 05:46:12

I'm trying to play .wav files, one for a verification, and one for
error...This option will be set to two resource wave files, and then
they will be changed by the code will play, but only the
default sound...I have tried every possible way to make it work, but
nothing, I'll show you a couple of ways, that seemed to fail for
me...I'm using the library winmm.a...somepeople it's Winmm.lib


#include "define.h"
PlaySound("C:\\WINDOWS\\Media\\Windows XP Ding.wav",NULL,SND_FILENAME


#include "define.h"
IDR_WAVE1 WAVE "C:\\WINDOWS\\Media\\Windows XP Ding.wav"
IDR_WAVE2 WAVE "C:\\WINDOWS\\Media\\Windows XP Error.wav"


#define IDR_WAVE1 900
#define IDR_WAVE2 901

Does PlaySound() return FALSE ?
And when you lauch "C:\\WINDOWS\\Media\\Windows XP Ding.wav" in Explorer,
(Start-Run), does it launch the wav with associated applicaiton ?

Yes it returns false, and yes it does play the .wav file from the run
window (start -> Run)
