In Windows 10 x64, MIDI-OX 7.0.2 Instrument Panel is now not seeing the instrument files that are in the instrument folder. The .ins files are confirmed there. Instrument Panel is pointing to the folder but no instruments are loading. The panel has become nonfunctional.

Most likely Win10 won't give read access to the ini file.
Create a "MidiOx/Ins/"  folder in your Documents directory and copy the file there.
Open MidiOx then view the Instruments page and use the box on the bottom of the dialog to browse and select the the directory where the copy of the ini file is.
This copy should now be readable and it should show up in the list at the top box.
 
Let me know how you get on.
 
All the best

Instrument panel works as expected after Inst folder is relocated to Documents. I dislike the ways Windows thinks it owns my hardware. Microsoft wants to make sure everyone knows the OS is licensed and they are in charge. Thus, I can dual boot Linux and am going to move there permanently, now that WinE can run just about everything Windows.

I think you are very polite when you talk about MS. Well done.
It doesn't resemble any of the language I use when talking about them Cool
 
Glad it  (sort of) worked
