Why can´t I use the command:
Private Declare Sub mciExecute Lib "mmsystem.dll" (ByVal cmd$)

in VB5 Prof??? In VB4 16bit it works fine. In VB5 I get the error "Error 48: File not found: mmsystem.dll" after using the function mciExecute with

mciExecute ("open overlay alias fps")

Use this declaration instead. This will work with 32-bit code.

Private Declare Function mciExecute Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "mciExecute" (ByVal lpstrCommand As String) As Long
