How to continue program execution while MMControl1 plays sound

How to continue program execution while MMControl1 plays sound

(OP)
I am using the code below. The problem is the program stops execution until the sound is finished. How can I have the sound play in the background and execution continue?
Dan

Main program:
.
.
SoundName = "SoundToPlay.wav"
Play
.
. (next command waits till sound finishes)
.
End Sub

Private Sub Play()
MMControl1.FileName = App.Path & "\" & SoundName
MMControl1.Command = "Sound"
End Sub


Public Sub Form_Load()
MMControl1.Notify = False
MMControl1.Wait = False
MMControl1.Shareable = False
MMControl1.DeviceType = "WaveAudio"
MMControl1.FileName = App.Path & "\default.wav"
MMControl1.Command = "Open"
End Sub

Thanks in advance.
Dan

>MMControl1.Wait = False

You need to set this before every .Command; it only persists for a single command, and is then ignored. This is documented behaviour.
