hey there, i managed to get yoke working on vista, unfortunately you need to install the driver manually - what i did was to install it on an xp machine, copy the resulting oemX.inf and oemX.pnf (where X was 2 in my case) into vista's %windir%/INF folder.
 
Then i had to export all related registry entries (i found 5 references) merge them into vista's, copy the MYOKENT.DLL found into the setup folder of yoke into %windir%/System32 and reboot.
 
So yeah, it implies working with regedit and you have to make sure you dont overwrite any existing entries in your media drivers, as windows increments each driver entry in its registry as a numeric value, eg:  
 
HKLM\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E96C-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE 10318}\00XX - where XX is the driver index.
 
my best guess would be to put it at something like 99 - or a higher value if needed - and alter all references into the registry according to this value. windows will detect it anyways, and i doubt it will cause problems if ever you install another media driver after, in case there is a gap between your last installed driver index and that custom one, but i cant be sure as i just got it working. With vista still being in testing phase, this is just a quick fix, and as usual when playing in the registry, is at your own risk.  
 
I tested it in reason 3 and Virtual Midi Keyboard by Wouter Van Beek without probs yet.
 
I kept the files i used, and theyr'e available at  
 
http://nsoft.ca/hosted/yoke_vista_fix.rar
 
I would suggest to use only if you know how to use the registry and to create a backup before. Also, ppl using this should make shure they wont overwrite any existing driver entries, and take a look at the .reg files before hand. Also make sure you extract the files on a local hard drive and that you have administrator access - vista is annoying when it comes to security.
 
Hope this helps.

Are there any plans to release a (Beta?) MIDI Yoke installer that's Vista compatible in the near future?  I considered trying to use neurostatic's files, but then found Maple which I'm now using.  However, I'm not sure that it performs as well as MIDI Yoke.
 
I'm more than happy to test an early Vista-compatible build, if that would help.

LOL, thanks - sorry, I don't mean to be impatient!
 
I'm using Maple at the moment, but the timing's all over the place - not something I remember seeing before with MIDI Yoke.  Anything I can do to help test, let me know...
