Using the PlaySound Function

A version of this page is also available for

Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3


You can use the PlaySound function to play waveform audio sound files, as long as the sound can be stored in available device memory.

In This Section

The sndPlaySound function is used in some existing applications to play waveform audio files. However, sndPlaySound offers a subset of the PlaySound functionality. Windows Embedded CE maintains sndPlaySound for backward compatibility.
