Hi guys!,

 
Back to the windows arena...., I want to test JPLAYv7 to update my digital transport, but I am struggling with dac driver installation in W2019 Core Std. Ed. (EVAL ISO).
 
Usb drivers are Thesycon (XMOS) and the dac is an Auralic Vega, tried v4.11 and v3.40.  I have made some progress but still not able to play via JPLAY mini. In thesycon control panel I can see the info about the device, firmware, samplerate, buffers, etc. In JPLAY settings panel i can switch between KS and ASIO Auralic. However, in device manager DAC is not correctly installed, no device in mmsys.cpl. 
 
I have basically followed steps of the HOWTO WASAPI in Windows Server 2019 Core written by AudioPhil. Does the install-uninstall-install rule apply to 2019 as well?
 
How do you guys do this process? Any help will be appreciated!!. Thank you!
 
Best,
JM

Have you tried playing any track? I’m unable to tell anything wrong from you DeviceManager. Can you go check the drive folder and locate any .cpl files in there. Buffer and latency optimization can be done by executing the driver control file.

Hi again!

 

I finally succeeded, but instead of using the Auralic Vega from my test setup, I have used the Mutec MC-3+ USB from the main one.

I have repeated the whole process twice and both worked, If I have the time this weekend I will try in my audio-pc.

 

These are the steps that work FOR ME

  1. Install Windows 2019 Core.
  2. (Configure password+Sconfig: (name, workgroup, ip, etc.) -optional
  3. Mount and install FOD (reboot)
  4. Disable firewall: netsh advFirewall set AllProfiles state off
  5. Remove defender (powershell): Uninstall-WindowsFeature -Name Windows-Defender
  6. Install AO 3.0. But do not run it.
  7. (Using Service_tool: Autologon + Totalcomander (Shell) ) -optional
  8. Run: AO -WASAPI (reboot)
  9. Run: bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
  10. Run: bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON
  11. Reboot + F8 (Disable Signature Enforcement.)
  12. Using Service_tool: Driver Helper>Install HD-Audio Drivers.
  13. Using Service_tool: Driver Helper>Install Drivers using Driver Helper
    1. Select Mutec MC-3+ Driver Instaler (v3.11)
  14. Connect the Mutec (and power it on!).
  15. Open devmgmt.msc.
  16. All seems correctly installed but "Audio inputs and outputs" show as Software Devides.
  17. Right-click on both (Speakers and Line In) and select Update Driver.
  18. An error appears because drivers are not signed. If step 9 was performed, you can select to install it anyway (sorry I don´t remember the exact message)
  19. Both are well recognised now.
  20. Open mmsys.cpl You should see your device in the audio panel.
  21. Install JPLAY. Test KS / Asio / Wasapi via jplaymini. They should all work!

I am happy now i can test in my main setup!

 

Best regards,

JM
