Maybe because NT4 MM drivers wont work under NT5.

Btw piracy is a crime, there is no official Beta out yet afaik.

considering it's the only version of nt i have that works consistantly, no matter what service pack i have... (and i have a lagit copy of nt 4 wks with sp3) i think of it as nt 4 wks sp4...

also, taking in to consideration all that is incompatible with nt5... it is a fair trade off for functionality

if this is piracy, then so is releasing buggy software, coming out with a new os every 6 months, making word processors that take up 100+ megs on a hard drive, an os the requires 32 megs to work, and several other things...

also... the mm drivers are compatible, minus the awe32 midi drivers, other wise i wouldn't have any sound at all...

and what is afaik?

The only act of piracy in your statement is the fact that you are using a illegal copy of Windows NT.

Never the less, my friend tells me there is a way to make the midi work under NT 5 (Wont mention names, cause he isnt allowed to discuss NT5 due to his employers policy)

Anyway, when there is a legitimate Beta out, i will tell you.

Micorsoft selects a few users more or less at random (apart from the usuall bunch of developers and such) I was lucky enuff to make both the 3.5 and 4.0 BETA teams, so i hope i will get the 5.0 betas as well.... some signs say i will :=)

killer!!!! but, about the beta.... this one's pretty solid... i'm not sure they could take it much farther... it's just nt4 with the memphis shell... (and, most of all, IT WORKS!!! [KNOCK ON WOOD]) i understand that the real changes will be made to the server version... less chatty net protocals and much unix influance... maybe microsoft is letting sco go to their heads...

keep me posted!!!!
