What works

All the main program functions work perfectly but the app hogs resources. Set mcicda.dll to built in or the app may complain when you close it.

What does not

CD player runs but has no sound output for some reason.

Additional Comments

This program is so old it does not even have native mp3 support due to the Fraunhofer licensing restrictions at that time so it has to be added separately. Same goes for some other formats. Here you will find locating those required FLT plugins is a major hassle with some seemingly now extinct. Later CEP plugins are not backward compatible. No graphic equalizer either!!. Otherwise this could have been a truly 'Cool' app.
