What works

Everything that I've tried, (which is most of the app)

What does not

As stated in other tests the splash screen hides the serial number entry.(Workaround, open system monitor and kill the second reason.exe, this will expose the serial, enter and restart reason)

As stated in other tests, can't click on menu buttons.  Easy workaround is to hit ALT then the 'down' arrow


What was not tested

Tested almost every part of the app and it seems to work great!

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

I finally abandoned Windows once I got Reason 5 working. With wineasio and some clever MIDI routing you can use Ardour3 as the MIDI sequencer and let Reason do what it does best. Be a synth rack!

I found that installing in a 64 bits prefix, the copy paste works.
Besides the menu being not clickable, the other thing that fails are the vertical texts on the rack.
