Audio w/o Quicktime on PCs

I have been having some problems trying to play audio files (wav files) 
in a player w/o quicktime on windows. the players in mc, rev 2.1 or 2.5 
will play wav files fine with quicktime on windows, but if i set 
dontuseqt to true on preopenstack or dont have quicktime installed on the 
machine, the audio files will not play. documentation says that audio 
files and video files (to some extent) should play w/o quicktime on 
windows. This happens on XP, 2000, and 98.

the player is visible with no controller and buffered (although those 
dont matter).

anyone have any ideas of why this is not functioning the way the 
documentation says? Has anyone played audio files on windows w/o 
quicktime using a player (ie not an audioclip).
