    Playing a .mid

    Is there any way with WindowsAPI to play a .mid file? I don't want to use DirectX if at all possible...

    Anyways, Thanks In Advance.

    EDIT: Okay... if I could just play it (manually) note by note that'd be okay. I have to update something every note as well, and it's a fairly short and easy piece...

    Unprecedented performance: Nothing ever ran this slow before.
    Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.

    Not sure, but does PlaySound() work for midis?

    MSDN says that PlaySound() only works for wave files. A quick MSDN search found this: Playing MIDI Files
