Windows MIDI instrument definitions?

Hi all!

I'm programming a DOS game in Borland Pascal 7.0 and have found a pretty good unit for playing MIDI files:

However, the MIDIs don't sound exactly like they do in Windows. The author of the unit is aware of this and therefor also supplies an instrument editor for the FM.DAT file.

Does any of you know how I should edit the instruments to make the MIDIs played with this unit sound like they do when played in Windows? Where can I find the Windows instrument definitions so I can edit the instruments in the FM.DAT file to match the Windows instruments?
