use this:

Private Declare Function PlaySound _
                Lib "winmm.dll" _
                Alias "PlaySoundA" _
                (ByVal lpszName As String, _
                ByVal hModule As Long, _
                ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long
Private Const snd_async = &H1
Public Sub PlayWAVSound(Optional ByVal pstrFilePath As String)
Dim lngResult As Long

    If Len(Trim$(pstrFilePath)) = 0 Then
        pstrFilePath = App.Path & "\StartProcess.wav"
    End If
    lngResult = PlaySound(pstrFilePath, 0, snd_async)
    If lngResult = 0 Then
    End If
End Sub

Perhaps i was a bit ungratefull, the solution did what it was required to, so if makes you feel better, i recognize that it deserved an excellent mark. I'm new at this and i thougth the points were more important. I'll have it mind for the future
