in DOS
The solution turned out to be within the Yamaha YMF utilities app, which is an utter pain in butt to use in anything but Japanese Windows 98. I got a few more characters to show installing a Japanese Global IME. So far I've gotten FM MIDI playback to work in 98, but not simultaneously with DOS …

Re: Windows 7 licenses

Windows 7 can also be rearmed up to 3 times for a total of 120 days. There are no restrictions during this period and you're considered genuine. Not sure where you got the license from... you probably need to ask the dealer if the key doesn't activate.
