    Need Help in Playing Music..!!

    Hello Friends..! In my program, i'm trying to play a music file in background...

    For that I used, this command:
    Code:
      system("start /min wmplayer.exe \"C:\\Downloads\\123\\You are like brother.mp3\"");
    So when it is executed, windows media player will be opened in minimized form and it plays the music..

    But Actually, it's not working..! I'm using Windows 7 only..

    If i use
    Code:
      system("start wmplayer.exe \"C:\\Downloads\\You are like brother.mp3\"");
    It works, but not minimized... So please tell me, how can i make it work in minimized form..????

    Or.., is there any other better way to play a music in background in between a program..???

    Thanks in advance..!!

    Using the same filename in both tests would be more convincing.

    > But Actually, it's not working..! I'm using Windows 7 only..
    Which isn't working
    - the playing part
    - the minimising part
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Use third party code, even something simple like SDL would work.
