Audio playback

  1. I need a program which can play at least WAV files and
    *THEN MUST CLOSE completely* immediately.

    Is there such a beast?

    The built-in Windows sound recorder.

    Use a batch file, and use the syntax:

    sndrec32 "<path to wav file>" /play /close

    Create a shortcut to a wav file, then go into the shortcut properties and change
    the target line to something like this.

    %SystemRoot%\System32\sndrec32.exe /play /close c:\pathtowavfile\wavfile.wav

    where the first part is the path to the soundrec file, the second part being
    self evident, and the third part being the location of the wav file you want to

    Now that you mention it, I would like to find how to get it to work with a
    shortcut to an mp3 ;-)
