  1. Dear Ben We definitely want to come up with a new AO version alongside with Windows Server 2022. It's not yet sure if it will be a 3.10 or 4.00 version and I can't say an exact time frame yet, but a new version is planned for sure. Very best, AudioPhil
  2. Hello It is a "dual function" and to reduce complexity in coding the name does show all possibilites but rather only the one appplicable in each situation. We'll of course take care of that in the next version of the manuals, thank you for your input. Very best, AudioPhil
  3. Hello The new behavior of the newer OS's is mentioned at several places and occasions. The setup guides also do offer different instructions for different OS's (we offer a dedicated guide for each OS on top). Very best, AudioPhil
  4. Hello We generally recommend to do the windows updates on a regular basis yes. You need to do a reset using ServiceTool before you can install the updates. Once all are in place you need to do one full run with AO the get fully optimized again. Updates can of course have an impact on the sonics, but not necessarily in a bad way. It just can't be predicted. Very best, AudioPhil
  5. Dear SwissBear Thanks a lot for the input. We'll include that information and advice in the next version of the user manual. Very best, AudioPhil
  6. Hello Windows Server 2016 & 2019 do not offer this functionality, that's why it's not displayed in the ServiceTool as option. Windows Server 2012 & 2012 R2 do offer that feature, and if detected the ServiceTool will offer the according functions. Very best, AudioPhil
  7. Hello Yes it will if you set it as Shell Replacement using our ServiceTool. It will look and behave like in GUI mode. The most complex part is the installation of JRiver itself since its installer does not work in Core mode. You'll need to install JRiver on a GUI machine, copy eveything over to the core machine and then do the activation. You can also still access Task Manager. Running proccess vary greatly from your setup and chosen options. Also the sum of all running proccesses ist not what really makes your audio sounding good, it's just good practice to have it as low as possi
  8. Hey This is because that servcice is disabled by AO. You can either do a reset using ServiceTool or just manuelly enable it again using services.msc. The have everything working as intended (from an OS perspective), i recommend doing the reset via ServiceTool. Best, AudioPhil
  9. Hello You can do so by using power shell commands. But it's reather complicated if you are not already familiar with it. Best, AudioPhil
  10. Hello How is documented in detail at the beginning of this thread and also in our PDF manuels. For your setup I think you can just use a the built in shell replacement for fidelizer and let it launch HQplayer. I don't think you need to create a custom one. Very best, AudioPhil
  11. Hello The best way to do that would be a dual boot system, one without and with AO installed. The "light" way to revert a part of its changes is the so called "reset via ServiceTool". Alternatively you can also uninstall it which will revert the system to the stat prio to the optimization. Everything (installation of AO, the OS, usage in detail etc) is describted, explained and documented very well in our PDF guides. For your setup i highly recommend you to read through the follwing PDF's before you start: https://www.highend-audiopc.com/PDF/audi
  12. Dear @Rsbrsvp Glad to hear you succeeded with WS2019 and Amazon Music, very nice! :) Unfortunately we do not offer the service your are requesting, but feel free to shot a message to @highend-pcdoctor he does offer exactly what you are looking for. Very best, AudioPhil
  13. Hello I'd recommend to start with the basics, there is enough to learn. Later on you can build up on that. Personally I like JPLAY a lot in the loop, but or course it adds another layer or complexity. Be sure the check ou all our PDF guide's in detail! Start with this one: https://pdf.highend-audiopc.com/audiophile-optimizer-setup-guide.pdf Then also read the dedicated guides about the OS installation as well as the computer audio best practices guide. Best, AudioPhil
  14. Hi yea that's correct. In most of the cases if it works fine on Windows 10 it will also do so on Server 2016/2019. But if you're not too technical I definitely recommend to skip Core and use GUI mode (desktop experience) on server OSes. Very best, AudioPhil
