#include <MMSYSTEM.H>
#include <windows.h>


void main()
{
  PlaySound("chimes.wav",NULL,SND_FILENAME|SND_LOOP|SND_ASYNC);
}




the above code is not functionning!
Here are the errors:
c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\mmsystem.h(113) : error C2146: syntax error : missing ';' before identifier 'MMVERSION'

c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vc98\include\mmsystem.h(113) : fatal error C1004: unexpected end of file found

**i have already added the "winmm.lib" into project/settings -> link -> object/library modules
, but there is no diffrent

Have you tried including windows.h FIRST?  I would assume MMSYSTEM.H needs all of the Windows data types, etc., to be defined before hand... especially considering that this line is the one that generated your error:

typedef UINT MMVERSION;

UINT is a Microsoft thing.
