Hi,

 

Do you know when AO 2.20 will be released? The beta version has now more than 1 year old  :-)

 

Best.

been using beta 5 for a long time now -- it's rock solid.  definitely recommend installing it.

I hope the beta 6 works with ASAPI in core mode.

 

The sound is really spectacular.

 

Yes it will as Beta 5 did :-)

Thats why it was the latest beta for so long, because it works perfectly fine and no adjustments or fixes where needed at all.

 

Beta 6 will also have no fixes, but some new functionality.

yes -- so good it's hard to put the "beta" label on it.

Like Phil has stated this is NOT an AO issue but a Windows Issue with the stack not being ready for network drive mapping at login.

 

In the Registry you change the Shell manually to use your batch file.  You then change back to default shell using Service Tool - or manually if you perfer.  Google search for  "change default shell in windows".  You would change explorer.exe to your batch file path and name.

 

Here is a batch example for your new shell - a delay of 10 sec, then map a drive, then start a cmd prompt window and then a strike any key pause (remove after testing).

 

timeout /t 10
net use <drive letter>: \\machine name\path   

Start "" "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe"

Start "" "any other programs you want to run"

pause   <- take this out later - allows you to see if you have any errors before the screen closes.

 

Look up the commands "Timeout" "Net Use" and "Start" for more information and correct syntax when using them.

To answer this question i even posted a screenshot of the upgrade section of the PDF guide. :)

 

NO, it is not needed. Just run setup.exe as described in the manual.

 

Best,

AudioPhil

If I understood correctly, Phil would add the map in the tool.
Yes, this procedure has been used for a long time and works.

This is totally up to Phil to code or not.   

 

The only thing I would suggest is adding another command to Service Tool Shell Replacement to enter your own shell command (like a path to a batch file) instead of having to use Registry. 

 

I already use .REG file(s) for changing my shell (less keystrokes) and in just a double-click & reboot,  & my shell is set to a batch file, or the default shell (another .REG).   But again the user would need to create your own batch/reg file(s).  

 

AO makes changes to the OS for us, we as users do additional changes with available Windows tools.  Again just MO.

 

Phil will make the final choice - obviously.

Hello all

 

Adding delays for many of the shell replacements is on my list. I think it's a good thing to do and we'll definitely see that in a future version of AO. We'll probably not see that in the public release of 2.20, but pretty sure in the beta phase and final release of the next version.

 

Best,

AudioPhil

Thanks for the update Phil

 

Could I please ask if I should have removed Fidelizer Pro 8 prior to installing the update. I left Fidelizer running and the update was not problematic in any way although I wondered if I should have Been Fidelizer free before updating AO

 

Secondly, I am currently running WS2016 on both my audio PC and control PC. I have it set up in GUI mode and would like to try core mode. Given my limited knowledge, is there a tutorial to setup audio apps in WS2016 core to which I might refer?
