I have installed 3.0 on a new computer running Server 2012. After entering my activation code I receive message that says cannot find specified path and AO closes. Could anyone offer advice?
Do you have Fidelizer Pro installed? I had the same sort of problem when Fidelizer Pro was installed. If you do have Fidelizer Pro installed, try uninstalling it and see if that solves the problem.
If you do not have Fidelizer Pro installed, the easiest thing to do first is to try running AO directly from Explorer or Task Manager as follows:
If AO 3.0 installed correctly, you should see the ''AO'' folder on the C: drive. Using Explorer, navigate to and left-click on the AO folder to open it. You should then see the ''audiophile_core.exe'' file in the right-hand panel. Right-click on that file and select ''Run as administrator'' to run AO 3.0.
Alternatively, open Task Manager, left-click on ''File'', left-click on ''Run new task'', left-click on ''Browse'', navigate to the ''audiophile_core.exe'' file as above, left-click on that file, left-click on ''Open'', and left-click on OK to run AO 3.0.
If neither approach works, I suggest uninstalling and then reinstalling AO 3.0. You should be able to use the same activation code again. To uninstall AO 3.0, follow the instructions on page 27 of the AudiophileOptimizer Setup Guide (https://www.highend-...setup-guide.pdf). Then reinstall AO 3.0 and try running it again.
Hope something here works for you.
