I am using Visual C++ and am simply trying to play a .WAV file when certain actions are performed. I have the syntax all down, but when I try to compile I get unresolved external linkage errors.

error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__PlaySoundA@12

Please help me with this...

I have winmm.lib in the directory :

/Program Files/DevStudio/VC/LIB

And this is the first entry listed in my Tool->Options->Directories->Lib Files, yet I still get an unresolved linkage error.

No wonder you do, sweets, you have to add the library to your project just as if it was a .c file; ie, it must appear on the FileView tab along with your other sources.

Use Project|Add to project|Files... to do this.
