Quantum why won''t that code work for me?

I plugged the mciSendString code into one of my Win32 projects and I recieve these errors because of it..

WinStruct.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol __imp__mciSendStringA@16
Debug/CreateWindowEX.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

Quantam forgot to mention that mciSendString requires that you include mmsystem.h, and that you include winmm.lib in your project. Hope this helps.
