Multimedia with Windows NT and Windows 95

I have made a small program playing .WAV files with mciExecute.

I made it on NT with VB5 PRO.

I run it on NT and it works well.

I installed it on a computer with Windows 95. When I run it, it says it doesn't find a winmm.dll and it doesn't play my sounds.

What can I do to have it working right ?

In your declare statement, are you specifying a path?
Does winmm.dll exist on the Win95 machine?  If so, where?
If not, are you able to listen to other wavs such as with media player?

Did you install the program on Win95 using the Setup Wizard or did you just copy the program over?  

If you just copied it over, you will have to make sure that winmm.dll is installed on your 95 machine and that it is the same (or a later) version as the one being used on the NT machine.

Check if you've got winmm.dll on your win95 machine.  If not, I have it and will email it to you.

That's silly.  Winmm.dll comes with Windows.  Anyone who installs Windows has Winmm.dll.  If it's not on their machine, then they didn't install the multimedia stuff or it was somehow deleted and should be replaced from the setup disk.

Mail him a copy of kernel32.dll, too.

Just in case.

You might also want to e-mail gdi32.dll and user32.dll, too.

This way you can trash machine ever...

You do realize, of course, that it is illeagl to copy any or all of the Windows operating system.  Winmm.dll is part of the operating system.
