I need to control the WIN95 Mixer's  Master Volume.
Using the mixer, I can control the Volumes and Balances of  the CD Player, WAV, MIDI, MIC and PC Speaker lines. I do this by using mixerGetLineInfo(), mixerGetLineControls(), mixerGetControlDetails() and mixerSetControlDetails().  This Works !!!!!       However, How is the Master Volume Controlled?

The following code is to get the control ID of the Master Volume.
        // get dwLineID
      MIXERLINE mxl;
      mxl.cbStruct = sizeof(MIXERLINE);
      mxl.dwComponentType = MIXERLINE_COMPONENTTYPE_DST_SPEAKERS;
      if (::mixerGetLineInfo((HMIXEROBJ)m_hMixer,
                               &mxl,
                                     MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIXER |
                                     MIXER_GETLINEINFOF_COMPONENTTYPE)
            != MMSYSERR_NOERROR)
            return FALSE;

      // get dwControlID
      MIXERCONTROL mxc;
      MIXERLINECONTROLS mxlc;
      mxlc.cbStruct = sizeof(MIXERLINECONTROLS);
      mxlc.dwLineID = mxl.dwLineID;
      mxlc.dwControlType = MIXERCONTROL_CONTROLTYPE_VOLUME;
      mxlc.cControls = 1;
      mxlc.cbmxctrl = sizeof(MIXERCONTROL);
      mxlc.pamxctrl = &mxc;
      if (::mixerGetLineControls((HMIXEROBJ)m_hMixer,
                                   &mxlc,
                                           MIXER_OBJECTF_HMIXER |
                                           MIXER_GETLINECONTROLSF_ONEBYTYPE)
          != MMSYSERR_NOERROR)
            return FALSE;

Then you can call mixerGetControlDetails() and mixerSetControlDetails() with the control ID.
