As far as I know, Roland did not ever release officially supported drivers for Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 for any of its XV synths.
I have seen many report they got it working with Windows 7 or Windows 8 (and I did this with Windows 7).

This post describes one person's success in connecting an XV-2020 to Windows 10:

(The XV-2020 and XV-5050 are similar, except that the XV-2020 really cannot be programmed from its built-in front panel, while the XV-5050 can if you have done it before and have a lot of patience)

Back in 2016 I got my XV-5050 to connect to my Windows 7 PC:

A similar method might work with Windows 10, but I have never attempted it.
I have since upgraded to Windows 10 and I have not bothered to try to connect my XV-5050 to Windows 10,
since my XV-5050 is now just a backup device.

I would probably try to method of the user who got their XV-2020 connected to Windows 10 first.

Thanks a lot Harmonizer,

I managed to get so far with your helpful steps, cheers. I'll have a look again tomorrow at finishing it off . . .

Cheers.

Hi Paul,

I also wrote this in the other forum:

not sure if this will work but I suggest to do the following (the options to chose may be called different on your computer, I am working on a german version of Windows and therefore don't know exactly the correct english names of all menu options, but I think you get what I mean):

1) connect your XV-5050 to your computer

2) open the Windows device manager, chose the XV-505 0in the list of devices, right-click on it and uninstall the device -> select to uninstall the related driver as well if this option is available

3) disconnect your XV-5050 from the computer

4) uninstall the A-800 Pro driver using the uninstall.exe program which is available in the directory where you unpacked the A-800 Pro zip file into

5) reboot the computer

6) install the A-800 Pro driver again with the setup.exe program delivered with the driver

7) connect your XV-5050 to your computer, have it install whatever the system wants to install as a driver for it

8) when XV-5050 appears in the list of devices in Windows device manager right-click on the XV-5050 and chose "update driver"

9) chose "Browse my computer for drivers"

10) chose "select from a list of installed drivers on my computer"

11) de-select "show compatible hardware" ! this should expand the list to all available drivers

12) chose "Roland" from the vendors list and then "A-Pro"

13) in case of any warning to not install because the driver does not match the device: ignore it and chose "continue anyway" or similar option

Now the A-Pro driver should be used for your XV-5050, but it might appear as "A-PRO" in the list of Windows device manager rather than "XV-5050"

Hope it works :-)

Best regards, Schorsch

Hi Schorsch,

I have tried for over an hour now but to no avail, unfortunately.

I tried the process many times but did not manage to get any further - same results I'm afraid.

But I really do appreciate your time and effort here as always.

Much appreciated,

Paul

Hi again,

Just spent some more time on it -

I know this sounds like a bit of a can of worms, but I was able to make a slight step forward, although you may not view this as being significant:

If I connect a USB from the PC to my Electro 6, and then a MIDI OUT from my Nord into the MIDI IN of the XV5050 module, the virtual-keyboard (of the Editor) reflects exactly which notes I am playing on the Nord. Also, it triggers the presets on the XV5050 and I can 'hear' the sound of each respective instrument. And, obviously, the MIDI LED on the front-panel of the XV5050 lights/dims in tandem with my playing/triggering.

However, what I am NOT able to achieve is program-change (from within the Editor to the XV5050). Instead I am presented with an 'error' message.

I experimented with the different options in Device MIDI Set-Up and the result in the screenshot below seems to work the best (albeit without program-change).

Cheers,

Paul
