2MIDI crashing on startup
« on: 7 Sep '15 - 00:55 »
I haven't tried it in a while, but I'm sure 2MIDI used to work under Windows 7. Now it just crashes right at startup, even with the updated version from 2010. Ian, can you reproduce this? Otherwise I'll just upload a memory dump.

2MIDI is currently incompatible with DEP (Data Execution Prevention), so if DEP is enabled in Windows, then an exception needs to be added for 2MIDI.EXE, as described here:

Ah, right, I have DEP enabled by default... Time to add an exception. :)

I guess almost everyone has DEP enabled these days, so I have brushed the dust and cobwebs off the 2MIDI code and made it compatible with DEP :) ... The update is up on the 2MIDI page now.
