Playing a sound in loop.

hi guys,
I've been asked to develop an install for our product. But I have to play a song, sound, music, etc in background while the software is being installed.

I know that InstallShield doesn't support sound feature basically.

But I've heard about using the winmm.dll to play a sound. Could someone give me more infos about it and what to use in the installscript code to make it work.

Depending on your project type, you might look into the InstallScript PlayMMedia function, which takes MMEDIA_PLAYCONTINUOUS and MMEDIA_PLAYASYNCH flags that might help...
