    So this has been an issue for a long time but ONLY for my desktop (it works fine on my laptop, but since I have gotten a lot of free time as of recent I want to use it on my desktop). I have tried several different types of music software, Ive tried different MIDI keyboards AND I have checked my devices under sound and they ALL say "working fine". So I don't understand, whenever I try to use my keyboard with a software on my Desktop ONLY, it just doesn't work, despite everything else seeming fine.
    I do look for the device in every music software I use because they all have a section labeled "MIDI setup" so I ALWAYS go there and its just empty, my keyboard isn't there. But yet I go into my devices and my MPK mini is there and says "Working Properly". I plug it into my laptop, and it works just fine, I plug it in and I'm immediately able to use it.

    I say again, I have tried different MIDI keyboards, I have tried different software, I have looked up the problem but everyone else just simply isn't having it install to their computer, mine IS installed, it just isnt working on my desktop ONLY.
