Hi alix,

just drop a TMediaPlayer (from System VCL pallete) in your form and make it invisible.

And the code is:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  MediaPlayer1.FileName := 'C:\WINDOWS\MEDIA\CHIMES.WAV';
  MediaPlayer1.Open;
  MediaPlayer1.Play;
end;

IHTH,
Itamar

You can also do this....

PlaySound(PChar('The path'), 0, snd_Async);
