    Just call PlaySound when you want the sound *.wav to play.

    Code:
    PlaySound("yourwav.wav",NULL,SND_FILENAME | SND_ASYNC);

    Will that work with mp3's as well, or just wav files?

    Just wav files. mp3s have to be decoded into a wav format to be played

    You need to make sure that you link to winmm.lib and include mmsystem.h.
