I am wanting to communicate with a Yamaha CVP-605 from a Windows 7 laptop.  All of Yamaha's apps seem to be in iOS for iPad, iPhone, and IPod.  Is there any was to run iOS apps from Windows 7?

It's not really possible to run IOS apps on a Windows PC or laptop. There are some simulators available, but they don't allow you, or make it possible at all, to install IOS apps to your computer.

What kind of apps are you looking for? You probably already know about this site: http://eu.yamahamusicsoft.com/en/instrument/Clavinova/CVP-605/catalog?keyword=Piano+Suite¤cy=EUR&page=1

There is a midi-interface available for your Yamaha device that works on Windows, but you might have found that one as well.

Thanks for the quick answer spravtek.  I had already come to a tentative conclusion that what I am attempting is probably not possible but would really like to communicate with the CVP-605 from my Windows 7 laptop via my wireless network.  I can connect to my router and receive a DHCP IP address for the CVP-605 but all of Yamaha's apps for wireless communication seem to be in iOS.  I imagine that there is a Windows app that will communicate with the established connection but so far haven't been able to figure it out.

(I can communicate with the CVP-605 via a wired connection but that requires a physical connection and is not optimal.)

Thanks again.

No, I don't think there is a way to connect Wireless to your device at the moment, only USB and Midi seems available. The only I option I could think of is USB over Wifi, but I'm not sure devices like this still exist... Let alone be reliable.

There is definitely a way since I have the USB Wireless LAN connection established but it is not, intuitively, available except via the iOS app.

I am coming to the conclusion that the wifi connection capability for the CVP-605 was created but not all that well thought out as to how to actually use it, let alone document its use.

Thanks for the input.
