    this is the VBScript I use which it works to play the a mp3 file

    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    WshShell.Run "d:\Image\Cabin\AFTER_LANDING.mp3"
    Wscript.Sleep 500
    WshShell.SendKeys "^a"
    Wscript.Sleep 500
    WshShell.SendKeys "{ENTER}"

    Add a 0 as a second parameter. See https://www.vbsedit.com/html/6f28899...640b0e32ea.asp
