Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "WINMM.DLL" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" _
      (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long


Const SND_SYNC = &H0  
Const SND_ASYNC = &H1  
Const SND_NODEFAULT = &H2
Const SND_LOOP = &H8  
Const SND_NOSTOP = &H10

Add the following code to the appropriate Function or Sub procedure in your application, in the main form_load, or in your main startup :

SoundName$ = "c:\windows\tada.wav"   wFlags% = SND_ASYNC Or SND_NODEFAULT
x% = sndPlaySound(SoundName$,wFlags%)

The easy way is to use the "Shell" command or you can use API like waty proposed.
