Microsoft DirectX 9.0

DirectMusic Tool Wizard

The DirectMusic Tool Wizard simplifies the task of creating a custom tool that can be inserted in DirectMusic Producer or in a DirectMusic application to intercept and process performance messages.

Microsoft Visual C++® 6.0 is required to run the wizard. Select New from the File menu, and then select DirectMusic Tool Wizard from the Projects tab of the New dialog box.

The wizard creates a ready-to-compile project containing C++ code that handles the basic COM component creation and DLL registration as well as the entry point for the DLL. In addition, the wizard generates the tool's implementation class with basic services already in place. After the project is created, you must add code that implements the tool's functionality.
