hi roman,

1. click "start" on the windows task bar and select "ausführen" (i assume 
you got german windows)
2. type "cmd" (stands for commandline) and click ok
3. now there comes a "dos prompt" window and there you can use the 
commanline options of PD
4. navigate to the PD/BIN directory (where "pd.exe" is)
5. type "pd -?" to see all commanline options of PD
6. and then use like "pd -mididev 1 -noaudio" etc...

another way for starting PD (batch files)
1. create a file named "start-pd.bat" in PD/BIN folder (the name of the 
file is not important, but the extension ".BAT" is VERY important!)
2. edit the .BAT file with notepad or any other ascii text editor
3. then type the commands you want to use in that file. in first example: 
"pd.exe -mididev 1 -noaudio"
4. save the file and now you can start pd on doubleclicking that .bat file

if you need more newbie help, feel free to mail me personally...

for you midi problem cant help much, while i never had one :)
