To use this API paste the following code into a module:
Public Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long
Then to call the API type:
Variable = sndPlaySound (Location, 1)
So for example to play a .wav file located at C:\Sounds\sound.wav type:
Variable = sndPlaySound ("C:\Sounds\sound.wav, 1)
Thats it!
