Hi Richard MacCutchan!

Wrong Richard.

because the PlaySync() method is a sequential command

And that's the problem. The thread that calls PlaySync is blocked until the sound finishes playing. If you call it from the UI thread, your entire application will freeze, and you'll get the "Application is not responding" message if you try to interact with it.

It might be OK for a very short sound, so long as you don't expect the UI to update whilst it's playing. But for anything longer than half a second, you need to play the sound from a background thread. Which is where the BackgroundWorker comes in.

Sprinkling Application.DoEvents() calls throughout your code is a hack, and a sign of code which needs to be changed.
