    Thumbs up Problem working PlaySound()...

    I'm trying to get sound playing using wxDev-C++ but I'm failing hard. This is my attempt here:

    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
        PlaySound("test.wav", NULL, SND_ASYNC | SND_FILENAME);
        return 0;
    This is the error I get:

    [Linker Error] undefined reference to `PlaySoundA@12'
    ld returned 1 exit status
    Am I going about this wrongly? I'm certain the .wav file exists under that filename if you're thinking that.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
