Is the need for thunking still present in the MIDI API that is part of XP or
is the 32 bit code stable and usable?

I am new to MaxMIDI but my understanding is no, thunking is no longer used
with XP and other NT versions of Windows. There is an update to the libraries
that you need to download from this forum. This library detects what OS you
are using and selects the needed method for talking to the MIDI driver.

yea..the thunking trick isn't even available on XP. But the good news is that
the timing is so good with XP that it doesn't really matter. However..the MFC
framework that Paul wrote is not a bad way to delve into midi programming. In
the end you might end up re-writing them yourself or simply using them as is,
but they provide a great model for how to handle midi message queues.
