Hello, new member first post

I cannot play a midi/tune/song from the internet. When I click on it to play it will start to open and I will get this msg:

c:documents and settings\test\local settings\temporary internet files.IE.5/860hs3mp
Invalid menu handle.

Hope someone can help me solve this problem.

Hi, welcome to bleeps
this one interests me
remember I am working blind so bare with me
also if you haven't mentioned it yet:
- what model of computer
- what os, XPpro or home
- how old is it

now with formats and codexs there are many kinds
therefore I am giving you these two, which mostly cover all types

I think winamp is the one you want here
a lot of music is protected and therefore no promises
everyday is a gift

Hey Thanks for replying, sorry I took so long to get back to you.

My cp is a Premio Intell inside pentium111
I have xp Pro installed (not sure about thisVer 5.1) service pack 2 it appears
I think this cp is about 5 yrs old, my son gave it to me

I also see that wmp is loaded version 10
Running IE 6

I also have Real Alt new version 1.51 I installed today 10-20-06
Media classic player also I see that Quick time is in my program but I don't use it.

I don't use midi files to often so it is not to big of a problem, I just don't like not being able to accomplish something.

Yesterday I could not play any music so I uninstalled real alternative and installed the new verison that just come out. Today I tried to play a midi file from the internet and one play, however when I tried later I got the same response that I had before and it would not play.

I am able to play music from my radio, cd's and convert to WAve using dmcpoweramp converter, so there is no problem there.

It appears that there is no "MENU HANDLE" what ever that means

Look forward to your response.

Thanks .
