The Csound.exe program you are trying to execute is not a graphical
application (like winsound). When you try to double-click it, it will
open a console, run the program and give an error message on the
console, then close the console. This is normal behavior.
Have you tried using this commandline in blue:
C:\Csound\bin\Csound.exe -d -o -dac
and running one of the berklee examples? If you have put csound in that directory, blue should render audio for you.
>Thanks very much for your help. I managed to open up winhelp by just writing the full path for WINHELP.HLP. However I am a bit confused about Csound as I am realy a biginner when it comes to command lines (or perhaps I'm just a little stupid!). I don't know what you mean by "/" and "\"...isn't the command for invoking Csound either "Csound" or the full path for Csound(i.e. C:\Csound\bin\Csound.exe)?
>I have tried opening Csound.exe manualy but it dosen't work. However, I can use Winsound and feed downloaded scores and orchestras ito it and it works fine.I want to learn the language but I can't start before Csound has actualy materialized on my computer, so yeah I'm desperate!
>In the mean time I am going to find and read more Csound manuals...
