    some button in the form I can't play wave sound to alert when I click simultaneously.

    The standard Wave Audio APIs in Windows are not able to play more than one
    file at a time. You don't give any clue as to how you are playing sounds,
    but your choices would probably be something like this:

    Easy-
    Use Midi for the BG sound and waves for alerts/effects
    or
    Buy/find a 3rd party wavemix dll or api of somekind

    Harder-
    Use DirectSound in your app. (drawback is dist size and finding good
    examples for VB)

    Hard-
    Write your own wavemix support using "low level" APIs (not playsound).

    Hope this helps,

    The SDK has examples of this as far as I know, you can download a copy at
    http://www.Microsoft.com/DirextX/
