I am trying to write a simple program for a pocket pc device running windows mobile 5.0.
I am using Visual studio 2005.  
All I want to do is play a wav file!
I have seen people use the statement my.computer.audio.play("applause.wav") which is nice and simple.
But when i go to compile, visual studio doesn't know what "my" is.  Should i be referencing something?  This should work, shouldn't it??
Thanks in advance-

the My Namespace is new in VB.net 2005 (ie .net 2.0),

I'm not entirely sure it made it's way down to the .net compact framework used by WM5.

i think you're right.  So maybe I'm not crazy.
What is the next easiest way to play a wav file?  playsound and the winmm.dll?

I'm not sure entirely.

I just got my own WM5 device a few weeks ago and haven't tried to code anything for it yet.
I've seen lots of references on forums to www.xda-developers.com and I'm sure there are other sites out there with good examples for WM5 development.
