Sound play is done through the MMSYSTEM unit, which is the interface to MCI
(i.e. Codecs). I had no idea that IE might be involved... but it might
explain one more of the problems... I might actually be running afoul of my
pop-up killer by trying to open two ie windows at once ... now wouldn't that
be a laugh!
Can anyone confirm if IE would be involved when playing midi, wmi, wave, and mp3
