    What is wrong with my Playsound(); program?

    #include <iostream>
    #include <string>
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <mmsystem.h>

    int main()
    {
    bool bStillplaying=true;
    string quit="";

    while(bStillplaying) {
    PlaySound("Beethoven.mid", NULL, SND_FILENAME | SND_ASYNC);
    for (int i=0;i<=7;i++) {
    cout << ".";
    Sleep(200); }

    cout << "currently playing a song.\n";
    Sleep(500);

    for (int i=0;i<=7;i++) {
    cout << ".";
    Sleep(200); }

    cout << "press q to quit" << endl;
    cin >> quit;

    if (quit=='q' || quit=='Q') {
    Sleep(500);
    bStillplaying=false;
    return 0; }
    }
    Sleep(500);
    return 0;
    }

    *Don't re-define i
    *You have to use the standard namespace (using namespace std
    *For "string" types, you can't compare them as char. Use " instead of '
    *And there's something else... but I don't know enough about playing sounds or the <mmsystem.h> header
