Right, but not everyone has Windows...

For people who don't have Windows the dlls are mostly available online
at DLL-Files.com:


I would suggest that maybe we need to make a standard location like
that the place to go so that everyone testing is using EXACTLY the
same DLLs. I'd be worried that your and my dll are slightly different
versions (due to updates done to Windows) then we would get different
results. This way we'd all be using the same thing. Easier to debug

We can even have an application page on the Wine AppDB that points to
the exact Windows DLL so that no one has to find anything.

This may be an issue with Wine and how well MIDI support is
integrated. I use Battery under Wine/jack_fst and I can drive MIDI to

Anyway, this would all be part of the buf report process we would make
to the Wine Bugzilla system about what works and what doesn''t work.
