To play wav files use PlaySound Win32 multimedia function. Be sure to build you project with winmm.lib and when compiling include mmsystem.h

The function is PlaySound implemented in winmm.dll which can be found in system directory. Corresponding lib file is winmm.lib that comes with windows SDK or VC++ or BC++.Header file needed is mmsystem.h which also comes with Windows SDK, VC++ or BC++ and can be found in include directory.
