In short:
- Open the Cygwin shell
- Move your MIDI file to the cygwin home folder:
- Run the command:
  midi2ly myfile.midi

However, read the 4th paragraph at
You will probably find it more convenient to write the .ly file
yourself, for example using Jedit as the editor, see

I am trying to convert a midi file into a printable score using Lilypond 2.4 in Windows XP. Do I have to use the Cygwyn Bash Shell or is it possible to write a .ly routine in my text editor? Whichever, I would be grateful if you could show me an example as clarification. I have tried invoking midi2ly in the Cygwin Bash Shell but keep getting error messages. Regards George Whitfield
