The fact that you are able to open from MIDI and the lights jump tells me the pedal is connected and communicating from your computer. It sounds to me like the pedal is not communicating TO your computer. You probably have an issue with the input on your computer. Since in your previous post it seems you are setting factorlib up correctly I would be troubleshooting my MIDI settings on my computer. Since I'm on my Windows 7 64 bit computer at work, and I brought my pedal to work with me to give you some help at lunch, I'll bring it in and plug it up in a bit. Maybe we can get this whole thing solved for you. I DO have software that will let me remote into your computer to check stuff, but won't be able to do that until tonight. Let me know.
