playing WAVE FILE

Hi there.

I need to play a wave file inside a VB.NET routine.
Does anyone help me with some sample code piece?

I'd prefer to use .NET component or native instruction.

Thanks in advance.

    Public Const SND_SYNC = &H0                     'play synchronously (default)
    Public Const SND_NODEFAULT = &H2                'silence not default, if sound not found

    Private Declare Ansi Function sndPlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" Alias "sndPlaySoundA" (ByVal lpszSoundName As String, ByVal uFlags As Long) As Long

   Public Sub OpenWave(ByVal sVoicefile As String)
        Dim x As Long
        Dim sPath As String = "C:\MYPATH\"
        x = sndPlaySound(sPath & sVoicefile, SND_SYNC Or SND_NODEFAULT)
    End Sub

Example: OpenWave("C:\Hi.wav")
