Probably, you are attempting to play a sound *named* with what's 
actually a filename (I'm assuming *SND_ALIAS is the default*). I think 
you should be pasing *SND_FILENAME to the third parameter.  And since 
you are requesting it to be played asynchronously, I wouldn't be 
surprised if it started played but stopped immediatly as your program 
closes. I would start by playing it synchronously, and only change to 
ASYNC after it's working.

  bool ps = PlaySoundW(Soundfile.c_str(), NULL, SND_SYNC | *SND_FILENAME*);

And as Jonathan pointed out, this is a question off-topic for this 
mailing list. You could try a microsoft windows coding resource instead.

In this case , just looking at the function documentation may have 
solved it, too
