If it is a windows application you have many ways to play a wav file . If you just want to play it , call sndPlaySound() as follows :

BOOL sndPlaySound(LPCTSTR lpszSound,UINT fuSound)

for example sndPlaySound("C:\\MEDIA\\MYWAVE.WAV",SND_SYNC)
This will play your wav and wait until it has finished . SND_ASYNC does the work asynchronously . If you want more details on managing wav's , lemme know :)

PlaySound also will work, and provides a little more control over how it is played
