    Hello

    I tested DPS version 2.0.0a17 on windows 10 build 10147 (latest build) and I have the following problems:

    – The installation goes well, the interface appears on screen but there is no audio processing. When I go to playback devices and click test audio on “DPS speakers” it says “failed to play test tone”. Also when I play any song, there are no sound level meters moving.

    – I’m running a dual boot with windows 7 (x64) , I already uninstalled DPS on windows 7 and then reinstalled it on windows 10 but it’s still not working.

    – I set my audio device (Realtek High Defenition Audio) to 16 bit 44100 Hz but no result.

    Maybe Microsoft changed something in this build or it’s because of the dual boot?

    Hope you can find a solution, if there are any other questions, just ask.

     

    Greetings and keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the details.  Are you able to hear processing using any other output such as analog headphones?

    Now that I’m back I’ll update my Win 10 machine and reproduce the issue.

    No, I tested it with speakers as well with headphones but still no sound. Everything seems to work until I set DPS as default playback device, when I click on “test” I hear a windows sound and the level meter of my audio device (Realtek High Defenition Audio) moves, and a message “failed to play test tone” appears. But the level meter of DPS doesn’t change.

    I’m testing in build 10122 right now and everything is working well on my Dell Inspiron 15R laptop.  I set the built in speakers (Realtek) to 44.1 and I can play the test tone on Digital Power Station without issues.  I will report back when I am updated to 10147…

    We have confirmed 2.0.0a17 is not working in the latest Win 10 builds (post 10130).  Our research has revealed there are some bugs in the Windows 10 audio stack and other audio developers are having issues.  We are on top of this and will release a new build as soon as we have a solution.  We may need to wait a bit if the issues are on Microsoft’s side.

    Good news everyone.  Please check out this post on the Windows 10 developer forum.

    It seems Win 10 build 10166 addresses some of the audio driver problems experienced in the last few builds.  Microsoft needs some help testing various hardware scenarios so now is a good time to pitch in an make a difference on the operating system everybody will be using soon.  We are testing DPS in this build now and will report our findings.

    PS:  sorry about the login trouble with DPS Insider.  I am addressing that now.

    the problem of compatibility with the windows driver dps 10 this of drivers have a non digital signature WHQL
    Digitalpower.sys file is not digitally signed, you have not been tested in the laboratory WHQL Microsoft. WHQL signed drivers available from the manufacturer.

    Code * digitalpower

    ruslang,

    Actually, WHQL certification is not required for a virtual audio driver.  WHQL is only required when the driver is being supplied by a hardware manufacturer.  The Digital Power Station virtual driver has a Verisign digital signing certificate which is all that is necessary from a third party developer.

    UPDATE

    We have been in contact with the Microsoft Windows 10 audio engine team.  They have been very helpful and have recognized that our driver is causing a new error in their code.  We have been running diagnostics for them and have provided our driver to them for collaboration.

    I will report again when we have more news.

    So it’s July 29th and Windows 10 is scheduled for release.  We don’t have final word from Microsoft about a fix for the driver issue, but I assume they are rather swamped right now.  We do have a work around that I will be testing.  If that seems stable enough I’ll pass it along to you guys so you have DPS functionality on your Windows 10 machines.

    I’ll volunteer to try the work around. Just updated to 10, and ran into the driver missing error upon first boot. Tried re-installing, but you already know this. Thanks for all the work!

    Thanks, caveman1972.

    I’ve added DPS 2.0.0a19 to the Dropbox folder.  Here is the install procedure for Windows 10:

    1. De-activate DPS 2.0 on your Windows 10 computer.
      1. Go to ACTIVATION tab.
      2. Click DEACTIVATE.  The DEACTIVATE button will only appear if you have already activated with your email and password.
    2. Uninstall DPS 2.0.
      1. Use File explorer to browse to C:Program FilesBongiovi AcousticsDPS 2.0
      2. Launch the unins000.exe.
      3. Follow instructions for uninstalling.
    3. Launch the new DPS 2.0.0a18b installer.
    4. Launch DPS 2.0.
    5. Go to the ACTIVATION tab and use your email and password to activate.

    For some reason, audio drivers that only support one sample rate are still not working properly in Windows 10.  We added the ability to switch to 48k sample rate in the driver for DPS 2.0.0a18b.

    DO NOT SWITCH TO 48k, it will not work.  Leave the sample rate at 44.1kHz.

    Just adding the other sample rate in the menu allows the driver to work.  Obviously we want a more elegant and permanent fix.  We are still working with Microsoft to resolve the issue.
