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

     Which lib function need to be called?
0
galkinCommented:
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.
