I think it may just be your Windows midi configuration that's not set up properly:

1) Go to Control Panel - sounds and audio devices

2) Select the Audio tab and under "MIDI music playback" - Default device: make sure it's set to "Microsoft GS Wavetable SW Synth". Tick the "Use only default devices" check-box for the hell of it. Click "Apply" then "OK".

3) Re-open "sounds and audio devices" and this time select the "Volume" tab. Under "Device Volume" click the "Advanced..." button. It will open up the Volume Control thing. In the Volume control thing, click on "Options" - "Properties". In the Properties window (under the "Adjust volume for" submenu) select the "Playback" radio button. In the "Show the following volume controls:" submenu, tick the "SW Synth" check box. Click OK and SW Synth volume control thing will now be shown in the Volume Control option box thing. Untick the mute check box and adjust the volume. Close the window once you are done and you should hear the midi files now.
