I need to alert users when a specific action happens in our database.  I thought I could execute a batch job that would play a wav file.  My problem is that I can execute the wav file and it will play but I cannot seem to close media player through the program.  The code I tried was
mplayer32 /play /close test.wav.  Does anyone have a good idea?
