No playback on Allegro 98

Post by Geefore » Sun Nov 12, 2017 1:52 am

I am using Finale Allegro 98 (old software) with a Windows XP computer. All of a sudden I can't play back any of my scores. The pointer moves across the page pointing at each of the notes, but nothing comes through the speakers. I have no trouble listening to something over the Internet or a CD. Did I accidentally click on something that I shouldn't have? Suggestions? Ideas?

Email if you want to send me a laundry list of things to try: geefore at comcast dot net.

Thanks

Generally a reboot cures that kind of problem.

Zuill,

I have tried rebooting several times. No luck. Any other thoughts?

Miker,

Thanks for that. I never even gave that a thought. Thanks for catching my mistake.

Miker,

I went into the Help files for a solution to my non-playback problem, but no help there. The problem isn't even addressed.

Are the Help files the "official" site that you mentioned?
