Streamlength® Driver :

Installation instructions

If you are installing the Streamlength® driver to allow operation beyond 96 kHz in Windows, be sure to uninstall any other ASIO drivers (such as ASIO4ALL) that you may have installed. If both drivers are installed there will be conflicts and your computer will not operate properly.

The Streamlength® USB driver allows Windows computers to use "High Speed" ("Enhanced", USB 2.0) mode for streaming audio above 96 kHz through the USB ports. Download the Streamlength® USB driver, version 1.26 to a convenient location, possibly your desktop, or perhaps to a folder you have created for audio applications.

(With the release of Windows 8, the installation file has been updated from Streamlength® v1.24 to Streamlength® v1.26 to address installation compatibility issues with Windows 8. There's no functionality changes and the driver does not need to be updated to this newest release if already installed on your system. If you do want to update your driver to Streamlength® v1.26, make sure you uninstall the Streamlength® driver by going to Programs under your control panel and uninstalling Streamlength® v1.26.)

Beginning with XP, Windows includes a ZIP extraction utility. Use this utility to extract the file to a convienent location.

Open the new folder and locate the application named "setup" (or "setup.exe" if you have configured your computer not to hide file name extensions). In Windows 8, it is necessary to run the file in compatibility mode. This is done by right-clicking the application and selecting Properties. In the Properties window, select the Compatibility tab and check the box next to, "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and make sure Windows 7 is selected in the drop down box below. Click on OK to return to the folder.

After double-clicking to open the file, Windows will ask for permission to allow the program to make changes to your computer. Click "Yes".

Click "Next" through the following screen to proceed with the installation.

Setup will then ask for you to connect the device and click "Next". Be sure that the unit is connected to AC power BEFORE connecting the USB cable from the D/A converter to a High Speed ("Enhanced", USB 2.0) USB port on your computer. Click "Next".

Click "Install" on the following screen to install the driver.

Click "Next" when prompted.

Click "Finish" to complete driver installation.

After installation is complete, if you are running Windows 8.x, you will see the following pop up saying that Windows has protected your PC. The file it is preventing from running is the cleanup file that erases the temporary files on your hard drive for the installation process. To let this file run, click the "More info" link and then select "Run Anyway".

You will then see a flashing shield icon in the bottom task bar flashing. Clicking this, you will have a User Account Control window open up asking for permission to run CNE7F17.tmp. Click "Yes" on this window to clean up the installation files.
