This may be worth a try – if you have the time.

My Axiom Pro 49 keyboard (installed with Windows 7) is not supported in Windows 10 – however, it works fine in Win 10, after “migrating from Win 7 to Win 10, with all files intact/keep Programs installed)”.
(This is NOT a clean install of Win 10)

(1) From Windows 10, revert to Windows 7:
Start Menu>Settings>Update & Security>Recovery>Go back to Windows 7

More info: Uninstall Windows 10 and revert back to Windows 7

(2) Restart computer

(3) Install Pro Tools M-Powered 8 with Updates to 8.0.5 – as well as the appropriate M-Audio Drivers -

(4) Restart computer

(5) Install a minimal version of Apple's QuickTime this way:
Scroll down to the heading:
Installing the bare minimum Quicktime Components Required for Pro Tools

(6) Restart computer

(7) Use Microsoft’s MediaCreationTool1909 (do not use the latest MediaCreationTool20H2) to migrate Win 7 to Win 10 with all files intact

Microsoft suggest:

Install Windows 10 Version 1909 – 19H2 (build 18363.418) with the iso from the following link:

Select type: Windows (Final)
Select version: Windows 10, Version 1909 – 19H2 (build 18363.418)
Select edition: Windows 10
Select language: English
Select file: Win10_1909_English_x64.iso

Run the iso - choose “keep my programs installed” – don’t choose a “clean install”

(7) Restart computer

(8) Run the free CCleaner:

Then run the free CCleaner Registry – run 2 or 3 times, until it finds no more to fix

(9) Restart computer

(10) Launch Pro Tools M-Powered 8.0.5 in Windows 10 to see if it works - please post your result!

Good luck!

Thank’s a lot! I appreciate your help!
