ActiveMovie Control

On my computer I can use ActiveMovie control to play .au file by double clicking  on  the .au file icon. I just want to know how to write a C++ or MFC program to play .au files one by one automatically using the ActiveMovie control.  Thanks.

If you can double-click on an .au file and that plays it, that means there is an association on that extension. So, you can simulate that by using ShellExecute() to play the file.

ShellExecute() works basically. But, as I run the MFC program to play .au file, I still need to push play-button on the control manually. So it is not "automatic".  It might need some special flag setting(??).  If you have idea about it, please let me know.  Thanks.
