Decided to put this page up for all you guys and gals out there having a
problem getting your USB-MIDI cable working in the new Windows 7

Ok the product we are talking about is the cable you can buy on Ebay and there are a few versions....

+ other versions...

Downloading driver from http://www.emu.com/support/files/storage/E..._L6_1_01_04.exe
 (If the Link changes it is the Vista driver for EMU x Midi 1x1 cable)

Used WinRAR to extract the contents of this file (available from http://www.rarlabs.com)

Once WinRAR is installed right click the EXE file and choose extract option

  • plugged in the USB Midi Cable
  • goto the device manager - Type in devmgmt.msc then [enter] in the Start Search text box
  • sound, Video and Game Controllers was already expanded with VIEWCON having a yellow icon
  • clicked VIEWCON and chose option UPDATE DRIVER SOFTWARE
  • chose Browse My Computer for driver software
  • chose Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
  • chose the 'Have Disk' option and pointed it to the inf file in the folder I had extracted

    i.e. \EmmP_PCDrv_L6_1_01_04\Binary\Drivers\driver\emuxmidi.inf
    (Generic-driver.zip)

THAT SHOULD NOW WORK !
