Hello Mr Kissel,

I was wondering if you may help me a bit with the MCI wrapper you posted here in codeproject.

I wanted to open the file with a CFile after it is played but an access error occurs.

I put an MM_MCINOTIFY callback like this:

LRESULT CWrapperDlg::OnMCIWnd_Notify(WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam)

CFile kFile;
CFileException kE;

if(kFile.Open(MakePathToInstalledFile(_T("CLOCKTXT.AVI")), CFile::modeRead, &kE))

return 0;

It fails with an access violation, it seems that the file is still busy.
Could you help me??

Thanks a lot
Emanuele Russo

You could try and wait for a while after the m_mciWnd.Close() by putting a Sleep.
