  1. Yes, It is up.
    Apparently, LKBridge is *not* Windows compatible. This is not mentioned *anywhere* other than when you go to the download dropdown at
    I’m pissed.

  2. From Livkontrol support:
    It is indeed a fail from our part not to have that mentioned in app description.
    It was already added but it seems that is not propagated thru Apple servers yet.
    Windows version of LKBRIDGE is not yet available but its planned and under development.
    Please subscribe our newsletter to receive that new in first hand.
    Thanks for your comprehension
    With my best regards,

  3. Just received an email from LIVKONTROL support and the Windows version of LKBRIDGE is now available. BE SURE that you have the latest Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package and then install the .py files into MIDI control scripts. This app is KILLER!
    LIVKONTROL support are helpful and attentive.

  4. It keeps coming up saying a newer version of c++ has been detected on my machine every time I try to install on windows. What is wrong?
