I just downloaded Csound 5.07, and I downloaded Python 2.5 to my computer in order to run Csound, and I am having some trouble getting it to run. I keep getting error messages when I try to run winsound.exe to compile my .orc and .sco files. I have been using Csound 4.something on my old Windows 98 machine with great success. Has the syntax of csound changed greatly? Do I need some front end to simplify matters? I am not a programmer, but a musician that really appreciates the potential of Csound. Any help getting started would be greatly appreciated.
