# Direct X8, MIDI's and Dev C++ help :(

## Recommended Posts

Ok, I have a seriously annoying problem. A few weeks ago I came across a thread on this forum called C++ Compilers and Environments - http://forums.3drealms.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB11&Number=516841&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=93&fpart=1 From there I downloaded the DX8 libraries and stuff Neil Roy posted. I am using the Dev C++ 5.0 beta (4.9.8.0)and am wanting to mess about with DirectMusic etc to be able to play MIDI's. However, upon compiling any kind of program to test that everything is in order, myself and a friend of mine get the same silly errors that we don't understand. Can anyone help so I can actually start learning the ins and outs of DirectMusic stuff? It would be greatly appreciated and will stop me going insane! the errors are: 1669 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\dmusici.h type specifier omitted for parameter  1669 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\dmusici.h parse error before ,' token 1673 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\dmusici.h type specifier omitted for parameter  1673 C:\Dev-Cpp\include\dmusici.h parse error before *' token Anyways the error is concerned with the #include <dmusici.h> line. Pointing to something wrong with this header file. the error is concerned with the line highlighted by the "*" below - the VARIANT line. STDMETHOD(SetVariableVariant) (THIS_ WCHAR *pwszVariableName, VARIANT varValue, ******** BOOL fSetRef, DMUS_SCRIPT_ERRORINFO *pErrorInfo) PURE; thanks in advance for any help you can provide :(
