How do I activate a Win OS sound programatically? Example, the sound that occurs when a warning popup window is displayed like a bell, or a beep, or something. I know how to activate windows media player, but that's only good for the machine the program is written on. I also work on an XP machine.

    long hModule,
    long dwFlags);
    [/code]

    Here is an example of how to use it ...

    [code]
    PlaySound("mySound.wav" , 0 , 0);
