Wow, blast from the past! :)
Development stopped on DirectMusic as of DirectX 8.1 (I think).
Whilst future versions of DirectX are meant to be backwards compatible with 
older versions, I wouldn't count on it.
Any Microsfot people still on here? You might be better off posing your 
question to Brian Schmidt or Scott Selfon - I think David Yackley left 
Microsoft around the same time development on DM was wrapped up around 4 years
