Right Click on dialog->Insert ActivexControl->Window Media Player

I am writing this code inside

BOOL CPlayerDlg::OnInitDialog()

    // Set the icon for this dialog.  The framework does this automatically
    //  when the application's main window is not a dialog
    SetIcon(m_hIcon, TRUE);         // Set big icon
    SetIcon(m_hIcon, FALSE);        // Set small icon

    // TODO: Add extra initialization here
    HRESULT hr = CoCreateInstance(__uuidof(WindowsMediaPlayer), 0, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, IID_IOleObject, (void**)&oleObject);

    IWMPPlayer4* pPlayer = NULL;
    hr = oleObject->QueryInterface(__uuidof(IWMPPlayer4), (void**)&pPlayer);

    IWMPSettings *pSettings=NULL;
    hr = pPlayer->QueryInterface(__uuidof(IWMPSettings), (void **)&pSettings);

    IWMPControls *pControls = NULL;
    hr =    pPlayer->QueryInterface(__uuidof(IWMPControls), (void **)&pControls);
    hr =    pPlayer->put_enabled(VARIANT_TRUE);
    hr =    pPlayer->put_URL(_T("d:\\abcd.mp4"));   
    hr =    pControls->play();
    hr =    pControls->Release();
    hr =    pPlayer->Release();

    return TRUE;  // return TRUE  unless you set the focus to a control
