How did you compile it? On linux I used:

$ gcc SDL_PlaySound.c -o SDL_PlaySound `sdl-config --cflags --libs` -lSDL_mixer

It compiles fine for me. When I run it, it starts up and opens a blank
window, and plays a sound, and then exits.

If you can not get this known good code to work, then I believe you
have a setup issue.
