I have been using the PLayMusic program for several years but since installing XP my midi files are now produced by the windows media player but PLayMusic does not recognise them. How can I now convert the file to be acceptable by PlayMusic? Ken Thiis firstname.lastname@example.org

If your tracks are mostly MIDI you can use "Administrator" rights to change the extension from .rpp to .mid and other programs will load those tracks as standard midi files. I've tested this out and it works.
I have musicshop 1 and have loaded it onto an osx mac with classic. Unfortuantely, even with the right codes it will not run under classic. It opens, appears to be fine, will read the files but then will not play them. in fact it will do nothing with them.
Good luck in finding a solution.
Only solution I can come up with is get an old mac, load it all, convert files to midi, and transfer them to a modern program.
Successfully reloaded my PDF Producer in Win 7 environment. Key - need to skip autorun file and run in troubleshooting/compatibility mode using administrator permission.
Insert the CD and open with explorer. Move to the setup directory and run setup.exe in troubleshooting mode. Accept default to use win XP model and let the installer run. It took several minutes for the install screens to sort themselves out and begin the process, so give it enough time to figure out your OS and antivirus environment.
There are a couple of ways to do this. If you have a sound exporter you can use them, (File>export>audio) if not you need to create a MIDI file of the score. I've done this for a few songs and it creates audio that can be played back in iTunes, and I'm guessing on MP3 players too.
File>export>MIDI File. chose your type of file and where you want to save it. This plays back on iTunes and Windows media player etc etc.
NB the resulting MIDI file is usually really quiet, but this is normal so don't panic.
I just found the same program with the same cables. I am going to try a usb to midi cable made by m-audio only because I have it hooked up right now to laptop running xp and the old version of Mircacle Piano which is the best by far and it works great. It is an M-Audio usb to midi cable called the UNO or something like that. its the one for 39 bucks very simple. It should work as long as your computer is running windows OS thats compatable or try running in 95 mode. Also some of these programs recognize processor speed and dont work on the newer systems. Good luck with it. have you ever used seen this software before? Ever see Miracle Piano? wondering how they compare.
