Which LilyPond version?

Why not try and see what happens. At least if you use the latest
stable version, 2.8.5-1, you will notice that convert-ly and most
of the other utilities work as a charm. lilypond-book still has some
problems, see the mailing list archives. It seems that there's some
strange problem with these Python scripts in the latest development
versions, though (haven't tried myself but deduced from the mailing


Quoting "Rick Hansen (aka RickH)" <address@hidden>:

Many of the utilities like convert-ly and midi2lp and musicxml2lp, etc. end
with a ".py" file extension.  Do I need to install a program that runs ".py"
files on my machine, or was this installed when I installed lilypond?

Usually programs end with ".exe" and my machine knows how to run them, these
dont, and I have some midi files I want to convert into lilypond.  It's
Windows XP, I have a feeling something is missing here.  If I need to
install something, is it free? and where do I get it?

I could not find anything in the user manual about what the .py file
extension is and .py files on my machine currently show an icon that is
usually used for unknown file types.  Also midi2ly fails to run.
