The mciExecute function sends a command to an MCI device. The device that the command is sent to is specified in the command string.
(Obsolete; retained for backward compatibility.)
BOOL mciExecute( LPCSTR pszCommand );
Pointer to a null-terminated string that specifies an MCI command string.
Returns TRUE if successful or FALSE if unsuccessful.
This function is a simplified version of the mciSendString function. It does not take a buffer for return information, and it displays a message box when errors occur.
