The MusEdit Viewer is a tool to allow music scores written with the MusEdit notation software to be viewed, played as MIDI, and printed out. The Viewer does not have any capabilities for editing the scores.

1) How to Install

The MusEdit Viewer is contained in a self-extracting file called meview_z.exe. Double clicking on this file will cause all the necessary files for the MusEdit viewer to be installed on your hard drive in a folder called:

C:\MusEdit Viewer

The files installed in this folder will be:

MEViewer.exe - the actual viewer program
MusEditS.dll - symbols used for printing out scores

MxMidi16.dll - three files which enable the Viewer to play scores as MIDI sound

Asturias.med - sample MusEdit scores to view, print, or play as MIDI sound. DrumRhythms.med (These can be discarded if you wish)

plus a copy of this instruction file.

2) How to Remove

To remove the MusEdit Viewer, simply delete the MusEdit Viewer folder from your C: drive. All files associated with the viewer are located in this folder - there are no other related files installed anywhere else on your system.

3) How to Use

After you have extracted the Viewer files onto your system you can go to the C:\MusEdit Viewer folder and find the MEViewer file. If you double click on this icon the Viewer will start. You can then use the File|Open command (or click on the open folder icon) to open MusEdit files, or you can simply drag MusEdit files onto the MEViewer icon, or the open MEViewer window.

NOTE: You may want to create a shortcut to the MusEdit Viewer on your Desktop. To do this, simply drag the MEViewer icon from the MusEdit Viewer folder onto your desktop. Windows will automatically create a shortcut to the MEViewer. You can then double click on the shortcut to start the viewer, or drop MusEdit files onto the shortcut to open them.

The MusEdit Viewer may be copied, distributed, or posted on web sites without any restriction.
