Hi tipt:
 Private Declare Function PlaySoundAPI Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "PlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszName As String, ByVal hModule As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long

    Public Sub PlaySound(ByVal Path As String)
        If PlaySoundAPI(Path, 0, SND_NOSTOP) = 0 Then
            Beep()
        End If
    End Sub

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Add the above code to your program,

then once you have found the path to the file to play using opendialog,
Call the PlaySound Sub, passing the file name as its parameter

Good day Dabas
i took a form and put a button on it, and then pasted this

code into it.
i just get 2 beeps.
when i console.writeline(path) in the playsound sub, the

path shows correctly.
there are no other files playing at the time.
this is prob the nearest i got to playing a mp3 though

    Private Declare Function PlaySoundAPI Lib "winmm.dll"

Alias "PlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszName As String, ByVal hModule

As Long, ByVal dwFlags As Long) As Long

    Public Const SND_NOSTOP As Integer = &H10 ' don't stop

any currently playing sound
    Public Sub PlaySound(ByVal Path As String)
        If PlaySoundAPI(Path, 0, SND_NOSTOP) = 0 Then
            Beep()
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object,

ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim playstring As String = "C:\1.mp3"
        PlaySoundAPI(playstring, 0, SND_NOSTOP)
        PlaySound(playstring)
    End Sub

jxharding,

You are right. PLAYSoundAPI seems to be geared to wav files, not mp3 ones.
This PAQ might point to the right direction:

Those are VB6 declarations, the Long type should be Integer in VB.NET.
