This version of Midibase is in beta testing stage. If you do not wish to be a unvoluntairy tester of this software, please do not download it. However, if you decide to download this version please be aware of the fact that it still can contain (harmfull) bugs. At least make a backup of your Mibibase data before continuing. Any bugreports and suggestion are very much appreciated and maybe forwarded to Dnote Software at dnote@wxs.nl

This version of Midibase uses advanced Windows features which are not available in a standard Windows 95 (OSR2 as well) installation. Make sure you have version 4.72 of comctl32.dll on your system, (located in the windows\system folder, check by right clicking on it and choosing "Properties" from the popup menu, display the "Version" tab, check the number after "File Version:"). If your comctl32.dll appears to be older, then apply the 40comupd patch available on the Midibase download page or at the Microsoft site. (Internet Explorer 4.0 and Windows 98 users do not need to check nor update)
