How to play sounds on Visual c++ 6.0

I am used to turbo c++ 3.0

My school uses visual c++ 6 so i want to convert all my files to visual 6.
But my files only work on DoS environments. I need the header files that would replace my DoS files from turbo to visual.

This is hard becouse Visual didnt work the graphics and sound that I had so i need the headers and the syntax examples that would call sound.

Im used to

playsound(45);
delay(100);
from my turbo c 3.0

i have no idea what to include and use for sound in Visual c++ 6.0

Try this:

#include <mmsystem.h>                 /* For PlaySound */
#pragma  comment(lib, "winmm.lib")    /* Linking to Sound DLL */

PlaySound("click.wav", NULL, SND_FILENAME | SND_ASYNC);
