    Missing Sound (VB 6)

    I have a VB application that plays a couple of sound files at certain points in the program. It works ok on most computers, but not on my friend's laptop. He can play other sound files (like music CDs), but the sounds don't work when running the VB app. Any suggestions as to what might be the problem with his machine?

    Do other "dialog-type" sounds play, like that annoying "Windows XP Critical Stop.wav" sound for error messages or illegal commands? Check the volume sliders to see whether WAV is turned all the way down, etc.

    As I recall normal sounds (like Windows startup) work on his computer. Also, the VB application does emit beep sounds -- it just doesn't play the wav sounds. It just occurred to me, however, that I need to verify that the wav files are installed correctly and in the right folder on his computer -- that could be the problem.
