Hello there DaniWeb!

I am currently trying to implement RtMidi into a project of mine, or i am actually currently trying to make the project, but it is highly in need of RtMidi to succeed. (Or just some other MIDI library, with MIDI I/O)

When i try to initialize RtMidi with this code:

#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
#include "RtMidi.h"

int main()
{
  RtMidiIn  *midiin = 0;
  RtMidiOut *midiout = 0;

  // RtMidiIn constructor
  try {
    midiin = new RtMidiIn();
  }
  catch ( RtError &error ) {
    error.printMessage();
    exit( EXIT_FAILURE );
  }

  // Check inputs.
  unsigned int nPorts = midiin->getPortCount();
  std::cout << "\nThere are " << nPorts << " MIDI input sources available.\n";
  std::string portName;
  for ( unsigned int i=0; i<nPorts; i++ ) {
    try {
      portName = midiin->getPortName(i);
    }
    catch ( RtError &error ) {
      error.printMessage();
      goto cleanup;
    }
    std::cout << "  Input Port #" << i+1 << ": " << portName << '\n';
  }

  // RtMidiOut constructor
  try {
    midiout = new RtMidiOut();
  }
  catch ( RtError &error ) {
    error.printMessage();
    exit( EXIT_FAILURE );
  }

  // Check outputs.
  nPorts = midiout->getPortCount();
  std::cout << "\nThere are " << nPorts << " MIDI output ports available.\n";
  for ( unsigned int i=0; i<nPorts; i++ ) {
    try {
      portName = midiout->getPortName(i);
    }
    catch (RtError &error) {
      error.printMessage();
      goto cleanup;
    }
    std::cout << "  Output Port #" << i+1 << ": " << portName << '\n';
  }
  std::cout << '\n';

  // Clean up
 cleanup:
  delete midiin;
  delete midiout;

  return 0;
}

(Basic example from the RtMidi tutorial) it only initialize the Dummy Mode.

When i then try to edit the

  // RtMidiIn constructor
  try {
    midiin = new RtMidiIn();
  }

into

  // RtMidiIn constructor
  try {
    midiin = new RtMidiIn(RtMidi::WINDOWS_MM);
  }

it says that the speciefied API isn't available/compiled.

Any ideas?
