WAV stands for "Windows" Audio, so by default, Windows Media Player is
configured to play WAV files. If it's not, it means they already messed
around and installed some other player on the machine which "stole" the WAV
format and assigned it to itself and then they deleted the player and so now
there is no player associated with WAV.
In which case, you can have your app shell to some .wav file the first time
it launches and Windows will present a dialog asking what to use to open the
file. The user would have to select Windows Media Player and check always
use the program to open this file type. This will only happen once.
This dialog may be able to be automated, but I'll have to think about it.

Not my area of expertise. But, does the customer have some objection to
installing QT on his machines? Why not just have your app installer install
QT when it installs your app? It's free. Then you are working with something
you know and are in familiar territory. ;-)
