Trying to Install Cakewalk Music Connector on 64 bit Windows 10
I bought Cakewalk USB Music Pack several years ago. I'm not sure whether I ever installed it, but if I did it would have been on an older OS, and probably an other computer. I'd like to see if I can get the existing software and hardware working to play with before I decide if I want to use MIDI. If so, I'll be investigating newer software and hardware.
I can see from internet posts that Cakewalk Music Creator 3 can be installed on recent OSs, and I didn't have any trouble installing it on my system.
I also found information about Windows 8 drivers for the Cakewalk Music Connector 1, and Windows 10 being able to use the same drivers. But I haven't been able to install properly. The setup program doesn't complete - even though there are messages saying the driver was installed, and it appears in Control Panel uninstall. Device Manager shows the device USB MIDI-IF with a yellow I symbol, and when I try to reinstall the drivers it says they are incompatible with the OS. I've tried changing compatibility settings, and also using the Windows 7 driver files to see if there was a problem with the Windows 8 drivers but the results are always the same.
Obviously this is vintage software and hardware, but I'd really appreciate it if anyone has any suggestions. A link to a page with instructions would be wonderful.
