I have an app that I wrote for Windows RB2010r5 which plays simple wav files.
I have since upgraded to RB2011r1 and the code no longer works.
Code is

sub playsound(fn as string)
dim vf as folderitem
dim voice as sound

vf=getfolderitem("c:\Sound\" + fn)
if vf <> Nil then

when I execute, I get a nilobjectexception on I know the vf item contains "c:\Sound\welcome.wav" and I also know that welcome.wav works with media player. And, as stated, this code worked in 2010. I don't see any syntax changes in the 2011 help under Sound. Anyone have any ideas?

You don't check whether vf.Exists = True
you may be getting a folderitem to a file that a) doesn't exist or b) can't be opened as a sound.
Step through this code in the debugger and see what vf points to before the attempt to openAsSound
