I'm porting a windows 3.11 SDK program to WIN 32 under windows NT using MS-Visual C 4.2.
My program includes MMSYSTEM.H because it make some use of the sound card.
I need the file MMSYSTEM.LIB and/or MMSYSTEM.DLL to link with.
Unfortunately I can't find such files in my Visual C CD. It's very strange because MMSYSTEM.H does exist.
(I'm using two functions from MMSYSTEM: mciSendCommand, mciGetErrorString. it compiles with no errors or warnings but while linking it fail to find the implementation of these functions.)

Thanks in advance

Commented:
The file name has been changed to WINMM.LIB (WINMM.LIB) for 32-bit applications. You can add the LIB from the menu Build/Settings/Link so that the linker links it.
