It is the same as under Windows 2000. I just tried it, and it works under XP as well.
Place the .java.policy file in c:\Documents and Settings\username, close all browser windows and restart the browser.

Have fun!

Good question. I am not using XP myself, but I would be interested in the solution to this so that I can include it on the setup page.

I think Java is usually not installed by default on XP machines - is it installed on yours? Does the applet do anything on your computer, like e. g. show a popup window telling you that it needs the permission to record sound?

Best regards,

does anyone use melodyhound on xp?

I am a bit of a novice and if it does work i am not sure where to place the java file as XP is not listed in the setup?

There are two users on this PC myself and my wife

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
