I don't know how you should do it, but this is
how I did it and it works.

Setting MIME Type for MIDI on Microsoft IIS Server

1.From the server, run REGEDT32.


3.From the menu bar, select Edit, Add Value,

4."Add Value" dialog box prompts for the "Value Name"

5.Enter "audio/x-midi,mid,,<" Don't enter the quotes.

6.Press Enter. "String Editor" dialog box prompts for the "String"

8.Press Enter, we leave it blank.

9.You should be able to find audio/midi in the list now.

10.Do the same for each of the following;,mid,,<,mid,,<
3.application/x-midi,mid,,<,mid,,<,mid,,< (This was because of a particular user was using Cresendo.)

Does anyone know how to get Miscrosft IIS4 to send midi sound files so that
netscape recognizes them? I have .mid audio/mid in the mime types of the
management console, but netscape still does not recognize the midi file as a
midi sound file. Any suggestions wound be appreciated as it isn't part of
the registry as in IIS3.
