Midi Not Playing

Recommended Posts

=sinister=

I'm not sure where to begin debugging this. For some reason, the midi udf:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=37072&hl=midi&st=0

does not produce any sound. I've tried various amounts of scripts with it (including some posted on these boards). If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

Running Windows 7 x64 bit (And other programs that use midi that aren't coded in autoit work properly)

Hi,

Just force MCI to use the Sequencer to play the mid file, crude example.

#include <Misc.au3>

$sAlias = _RandomStr()
_mciSendString("open " & FileGetShortName(@WindowsDir & "\Media\flourish.mid") & " alias " & $sAlias & " type Sequencer")
_mciSendString("play " & $sAlias)

While (Not _IsPressed("1B")) ;Esc to exit
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

; #FUNCTION# ==============================================================================================
; Name...........: _RandomStr
; Description....: Creates a random string
; Syntax.........: _RandomStr([$iLen = 10])
; Parameters ....: $iLen      - Length of string to return
; Return values .: Success    - Returns a string of random letters (a~z)
; Author ........: RazerM
; =========================================================================================================
Func _RandomStr($iLen = 10)
    Local $sTmp = ''
    For $i = 1 To $iLen
        $sTmp &= Chr(Random(97, 122, 1))
    Next
    Return $sTmp
EndFunc   ;==>_RandomStr

; #FUNCTION# ==============================================================================================
; Name...........: _mciSendString
; Description....:
; Syntax.........: _mciSendString($string[, $iLen = 0])
; Parameters ....: $string
;                  $iLen
; Return values .:
; Author ........: RazerM
; =========================================================================================================
Func _mciSendString($string, $iLen = 0)
    Local $iRet
    $iRet = DllCall("winmm.dll", "int", "mciSendStringA", "str", $string, "str", "", "long", $iLen, "long", 0)
    If Not @error Then Return $iRet[2]
EndFunc   ;==>_mciSendString

I'm using Win7 x64 and it works for me..

Cheers
