incorporating wav file into a package

I created a package using VB6, creating exe, lst and cab files.  I zipped these files and uploaded the zip file to my website.  I downloaded it from another computer and installed the application.  The problem is, when I ran this application on the other computer, the wav file, which is part of the application, did not play.  

Someone has told me that there has to be certain supporting files on the other person's computer. But,  I thought if I was creating a package, with a setup.exe, everything necessary to run the application would be in there.  Isn't that true?

In the Package and Deployment wizard manually select and add the WAV file to your package.  You may also have to adjust the folder where it is installed.

You need a soundcard or speaker and drivers for them on the other computer. What are you using to play the wav files.

The Package and deployment wizard will not pick up all the dependencies.

Check the other computer for multimedia devices it may not be able to play sounds. If this is the case you may have to install drivers to play the sounds through the speaker. (where there is no soundcard present)

VinventLawlor, there is a sound card.  Other applications on this computer play sounds.  When my application should be playing my wav file, what happens instead is Windows plays ding.wav.

acperkins, I'm trying out your suggestion of adding the wav file................
