Is this supposed to play on my computer? I can't get the PMIDI module to work. I can write a code and it doesn't show and error, but I can't hear anything. I'm sure the codes are well written(mostly because I've used examples from other places) so does anyone know why this happens? I'm using Windows XP and yes, my speakers are on and they work.

This is one of the codes I've tried to run. It is not mine, it's from vegaseat in the code snippets section. Any help on why it doesn't play would be apreciated.
