#If Win32 Then
Private Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm" Alias _
   "sndPlaySoundA" (lpszSoundName As Any, ByVal uFlags As Long) _
   As Long
#Else
Private Declare Function sndPlaySound Lib "MMSYSTEM" ( _
                   lpszSoundName As Any, ByVal uFlags%) As Integer
#End If

' Flag values for wFlags parameter.

'*********************************************************************

Public Const SND_SYNC = &H0        ' Play synchronously (default).
'Public Const SND_ASYNC = &H1      ' Play asynchronously (see
                            ' note below).
Public Const SND_NODEFAULT = &H2   ' Do not use default sound.
Public Const SND_MEMORY = &H4      ' lpszSoundName points to a
                            ' memory file.
Public Const SND_LOOP = &H8        ' Loop the sound until next
                            ' sndPlaySound.
Public Const SND_NOSTOP = &H10     ' Do not stop any currently
                                                  ' playing sound.
Public Sub PlayWaveRes(vntResourceID As Variant, Optional vntFlags)
'-----------------------------------------------------------------
' WARNING:  If you want to play sound files asynchronously in
'           Win32, then you MUST change bytSound() from a local
'           variable to a module-level or static variable. Doing
'           this prevents your array from being destroyed before
'           sndPlaySound is complete. If you fail to do this, you
'           will pass an invalid memory pointer, which will cause
'           a GPF in the Multimedia Control Interface (MCI).
'-----------------------------------------------------------------
Dim bytSound() As Byte ' Always store binary data in byte arrays!

bytSound = LoadResData(vntResourceID, "WAVE")

If IsMissing(vntFlags) Then
   vntFlags = SND_NODEFAULT Or SND_SYNC Or SND_MEMORY
End If

If (vntFlags And SND_MEMORY) = 0 Then
   vntFlags = vntFlags Or SND_MEMORY
End If

sndPlaySound bytSound(0), vntFlags
               End Sub
