    Thanks for posting that. It works like a charm!

    Just found an issue if you have both DPS 1 and DPS 2 installed and activated. After I reinstalled DPS 1.2.3 and activated it, when I start DPS 2.0, it’s no longer activated and the field where you type your email address looks like this: —Od7Hõø´5ؚ9ó´±DCu

    The reverse is also true. If 2.0 is activated and I start DPS 1.2.3, it’s no longer activated and has the same type of hash in the email address field.

    I intended to use DPS 2.0 from now on, but will be using 1.2.3 when I’m playing games or listening to music with my headphones because switching back and forth between music and movie doesn’t work in 2.0.

    Just wondering is 2.0 going to be a free upgrade for existing users?

    On PC Restart, DPS 2.0 opens the DPS console, I assume this will behavior is not intentional?

    My uneducated guess is the DPS upgrade will be free.

    DPS is starting when you reboot your computer because it’s in your Startup folder, if that’s what you mean. It’s an option during installation.

    If, by console, you mean that DPS 2.0 shows up on your desktop, that is different behaviour from DPS 1.2.3, which only shows in the notification area of the task bar. I noticed that the first time I started DPS 2.0. I actually like it because I can take a quick look at my settings without going to the task bar and opening it.

    A few quick answers:

    Yes, of course a free upgrade 🙂

    Regarding startup:

    The proper behavior is for DPS to relaunch in exactly the same state as you left it.  So if you have the GUI (console in your words) open when you shut down your computer, it should reappear when you start it again.  And if it was minimized to the system tray when you shut down your machine, it should be in the sys tray when you start it again.  The problem is that DPS is not saving the settings properly to the registry when the machine is shut down.  If you quit DPS manually, the settings will be saved.  This is a bug and will be fixed in the next release.

    Hi Joey:

    I learn something every day. I didn’t realize DPS 1.2.3 behaved that way also. I normally close the GUI after looking at it, so I only see it in the notification area.

    That’s all part of the “It just works” aspect of software design 😉

    Our goal is to make audio software that adapts to how you want to use it.  Not the other way around.

    I understand what you’re saying. I was a software designer and developer back in the early mainframe days. Programming was a lot more challenging then, too. I started programming on a mainframe, which didn’t even have an operating system, and it was done in machine language on punch cards.

    Wow!  Hats off to you, my friend.  My earliest memories of storage were disk packs and huge floppies.  But at least they were magnetic.

    The mainframe I mentioned was a GE 225. A Google search actually turns up a lot of interesting stuff on it. A few years later, Honeywell bought out the GE mainframe business and I worked on those for a while. After a few years with the Honeywell, I got into the IBM 1401 then the early 360’s and was an assembler programmer for a while. I’ve been a tech geek all my adult life and always enjoyed my early days getting started. I have an aptitude for that stuff, which helps a lot. When I first got into it, I was in a competition with about 30 other people at a large bank and they were looking for 1 person to “get into computers”. We wrote an aptitude test and I ended up being selected.

    At least for me, the GUI is open when the PC starts even when I “X Out” of the GUI prior to shutdown.  1.0 did not do this.

    I thought that’s the way it was working for me too, but I admit I haven’t paid close attention. I’m going to try it again and will report back here.

    If you X out of the GUI.  Then quit DPS from the system tray, it should start up again with the GUI closed.  Let me test this too…

    Hmmmm.  You are right guys, it is not saving that preference properly.  I’m putting it on the list…

    OK, just tested all 4 possibilities. Here you go:

    Test 1: (DPS 1.2.3 in startup folder). GUI on desktop, restarted Windows, GUI shows on desktop.

    Test 2: (DPS 1.2.3 in startup folder). GUI not on desktop, restarted Windows, GUI not on desktop.

    Test 3: (DPS 2.0 in startup folder). GUI on desktop, restarted Windows, GUI shows on desktop.

    Test 4: (DPS 2.0 in startup folder). GUI not on desktop, restarted Windows, GUI shows on desktop.

    We already discussed test 4, which doesn’t work because 2.0 is not updating the registry.
