sorry man its close to what i want but not quite. i want to know exactly how to get the sound to play on the load
the user doesnt have buttons to control on or off.
Well all the information is there, the only thing you have to do is set it in the load event of your form.

 Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
         AxMediaPlayer1.AutoStart = False
         AxMediaPlayer1.FileName = "yoursoundfile"
 end sub
