From Help:
Public Class SoundClass

   Declare Auto Function PlaySound Lib "winmm.dll" (ByVal name _
      As String, ByVal hmod As Integer, ByVal flags As Integer) As Integer

   ' name   specifies the sound file when the SND_FILENAME flag is set.
   ' hmod   specifies an executable file handle.
   ' hmod   must be Nothing if the SND_RESOURCE flag is not set.
   ' flags  specifies which flags are set. 

   ' The PlaySound documentation lists all valid flags.
   Public Const SND_SYNC = &H0          ' play synchronously
   Public Const SND_ASYNC = &H1         ' play asynchronously
   Public Const SND_FILENAME = &H20000  ' name is file name
   Public Const SND_RESOURCE = &H40004  ' name is resource name or atom

   ' Following method plays a sound from filename.
   Public Sub PlaySoundFile(ByVal filename As String)

      PlaySound(filename, Nothing, SND_FILENAME Or SND_ASYNC)

   End Sub

End Class

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
      ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

   Dim SoundInst As New SoundClass()


End Sub
