This worked for me to play a wav file:

using NAudio.Wave;
var soundFile = "Something.wav";
using (var wfr = new WaveFileReader(soundFile))
using (WaveChannel32 wc = new WaveChannel32(wfr) {PadWithZeroes = false})
using (var audioOutput = new DirectSoundOut())


while (audioOutput.PlaybackState != PlaybackState.Stopped)


In this case, the PlaybackStopped event was raised, but I guess it's not good to count on that.

This would work when running as a service on Windows 7.

Could someone be a lamb and post a sample? I need to play a WAV file from a Windows Service on Windows 7 and this is supposed to be the solution to my problems.
