You can use modplug dll to play all modules including .xm (for details visit:)

of course i could use npmod32.dll but i want ta create a dos program, so i can't get a handle of a window where modplug should be displayed. (and the npmod32.dll don't work if u don't specifie any handle...)
i've often seen midas.dll with some dos programs but i don't know how to use it.
could anyone help me?

regards

DOS programs can't use DLLs.

A Win32 console program can use DLLs though.
