    hi experts,

    I am developing Win XP/2000 s/w for a usb device that
    generates midi messages. We have vender supplied USB
    drivers (.sys and .dll). Using the dll I am able read the
    midi msgs from the device.

    But I need to forward these msgs to applications like
    CakeWalk, ProTools etc. These apps read midi ports.

    So I need to virtual midi port and write my midi msgs to
    the port, which can then be read by the apps.

    My question is do I need to write a WDM driver for such
    simple purpose! If, yes would a simple user mode dll

    Any help is appreciated ,

    thank you - audrey.
