When compiling and linking source code downloaded from Creative Labs, for the SoundBlaster 16 card,  I get link errors because of items referenced in "mmsystem.h" (e.g. "waveOut Close"). The linker cannot find the item presumably because of a library file I need.
Does anyone know what the library file is, and where I can get it ?

You need to link with winmm.lib.  It should be one off the files included with your compiler (assuming it is VC or BC).

If you have VC, it should be in the VC/LIB dir.  I could send you a copy if you can't find it.
