Hi Joseph,

I've posted same Mega link on some domestic forums - no issues w/ download. Here's the link for HB installer if you want it (I find it very useful): https://ufile.io/3pp84nqf

If I understand well, after session in Unattended mode MC/LE processes are not listed/seen in Task Manager any more, right?

Brgds,
George

Hi Joseph,

Link I posted before is still valid and contains HB installer v.9 (zip file) and I added the latest version of MC/LE pairs (7z files + passwd files)

Here is the link again: https://mega.nz/fm/OogmGYzZ
And a link to developer's blog I forgot to mention, for MC/LE future releases: http://www.mics.ne.jp/~cdorya/MajiorityClean/

- You need only one folder and all files in it (nssm, installer and MC/LE pair(s) - it is possible to run more versions of them at the same time.
- 'Keep this process' field in XXHE settings should be active in minimized OS as well. Have no activated XXHE on PC I'm writing right now to check.

Let's help a bit more:
- There is small software with more options than 'sexe.exe' that will install MajiorityClean/LemonadeElitest as a Windows process(es), called 'nssm.exe'. Link for download: https://nssm.cc/download
- There is also a batch file made by a user on another good audio forum that will automate installation/de-installation (cleaning) of several MC/LE instances, called 'HungyBears MC installer v.9'.
   When installation is completed, 'nssm.exe' is closed - no unnecessary active processes exist.
- The link for downloading two most positively described & rated versions of MC/LE pairs together with a/m mentioned batch file: https://mega.nz/fm/OogmGYzZ  7z files passwd is in txt files.

 How I use MC as Win process:
- Create folder named for example 'MC' at HDD/SSD's root
- Copy MC/LE of choice (or more versions of them)
- Copy nssm.exe and HungryBear's installer to same folder

Run installer which will ask simple questions and open nssm's small GUI. Simply point nssm to the file's path and click Install. Choose process priority (there's MC/LE author's suggestion).
Few more questions to answer with Y/N and all is set. File should normally run without administrator's privileges.

Expect Peter to comment MC/LE and in case his findings are good, how it could live on systems with OS in memory.

Hi Peter,
No, it was problem with KS on WServer 2019 Core mode installation however it seems to be one of options in Audiophile Optimizer: 'to install Kernel Streaming and Media Player Support or not'. Never tried AO myself but read abt KS problem on another forum smile. Sure, without KS @vhs would not have sound at all smile

@vhs

Looks to me you are coming from JPlay environment. For your info, licensed XXHE will do all Windows optimizations (probably more) without need of Process Lasso (PL), Audiophile Optimizer (AO) and Fidelizer Pro (FP). Simply press 'Minimize OS' and XXHE will do all that is needed for perfect PC audio reproduction. Server 2019 is variation of W10 where some services/processes are not activated. If I remember well, even Kernel Streaming is not started or even not installed at all.

Brgds,
George

Interesting, I have similar experience with LG V30 phone. Silky highs like, I don't know how to describe, like Thai silk? No more two PC's and tablet plus. Simple and elegant solution.

8  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: CoverartPath is Empty - Check Coverart error on: December 28, 2020, 10:28:00 am
Hi Peter,

Re-checked the occurrence of above error, very strange. When cover art option(s) are active, some folders, with a number of files
(say 40, 50 or more with 1 photo named 'folder') do show the above error while others with similar content play normally.

In both cases, the photo shown on desktop is totally unrelated to music played. It belongs to album I played perhaps a month ago.

Loading and playing some album with own cover photo does not change what is shown on desktop , still the same photo from album played who knows when Happy.
Clicking [C] button (Clear CoverArt Cashe) brings no change.

Since I become unregistered too (windows updates perhaps), will delete both XXHE, XXHEdata dirs and try again.

Brgds,
George

Hi Peter

Hi Peter,

Minority Clean does some 'cleaning' or rearranging SSE and MMX processor instructions. There is source code always included in package, it is written in Basic so
for you it is very easy to determine what it actually does. It can be loaded as one of Win processes (using sexe64.exe) or put in startup folder or started manually.
No matter audio player used, it does have positive effect on audio playback.

George
11  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Re: Where do I login for Tidal services through XXHighend? on: November 09, 2019, 11:47:35 am
Bert, if I may:

We usually use 2 PC's: One, called 'AudioPC' and second called 'MusicPC'. MusicPC is intended as storage of our music collection and as control unit for AudioPC, using remote desktop connection (RDC).

In order to listen Tidal streams, we use MusicPC with another instance of XXHE, installed & activated. MusicPC is connected to internet and operates in normal Windows, not minimized.
XXHE is started on MusicPC as well and there you enter Tidal credentials. Beside that, you need to assign (create) some new folder where streams will be (temporary) downloaded.
On AudioPC (accessed via RDC) it is needed to point (instruct) the other ('main') instance of XXHE to look for that specific folder, created on already shared disks(s) where your music collection resides.
You are not streaming directly to AudioPC but to MusicPC and from there collecting Tidal content.

Think you still need to re-read instructions (photo help) on Tidal streaming. It will ease choosing where each info goes.

Hope it is a bit clearer what should be done.

Brgds,
George
12  Ultimate Audio Playback / Chatter and forum related stuff / Re: Running downgraded Xxhighend with W10 updated OS on: May 30, 2018, 02:42:00 pm
Here's a short report of my playing with 'AudioPC' trying to replicate subject error: No success. XXHE starts normally.
I've uninstalled all unneeded Apps that came with W10 14393.0 using Settings + PowerShell + CleanMyPC sw and tried starting XXHE after each uninstalled app. Always normal start.
Did not touch Defender, think it is disabled by XXHE?
13  Ultimate Audio Playback / Chatter and forum related stuff / Re: Running downgraded Xxhighend with W10 updated OS on: May 28, 2018, 12:45:48 pm
I'll be back home probably tomorrow and will do what Peter nicely summed up in his previous post: boot into normal OS and start uninstalling one by one 'App' until I get stuck with subject error. And report here of course. Last time solution to problem was simple: fresh W10 installation Happy
Since I've got new 14393.0 ISO file ('N' variance this time) I'm really planning to format disk and start all over again with it. Have enough cold white wine for light, Summer 'spritzer'  smile

Btw, here is small download tool that will help download any M$oft Windows ISO image you wish: https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/technology-science/microsoft/67-microsoft-windows-iso-download-tool
14  Ultimate Audio Playback / Chatter and forum related stuff / Re: Running downgraded Xxhighend with W10 updated OS on: May 28, 2018, 10:16:58 am
And to clarify a bit further - it is the same uninstalled app(lication) that causes subject error regardless of W10 build - same error exists in 14393.0 and 17134.48 (.81 as last update)
15  Ultimate Audio Playback / Chatter and forum related stuff / Re: Running downgraded Xxhighend with W10 updated OS on: May 28, 2018, 10:05:24 am
Hi Peter,

- If your PC is constantly on internet, it should update to 1803 (17134.48) as last update. Update to 1803 was on May 23rd: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4100403/windows-10-update-kb4100403
- I mentioned my case of inability to run (install) XXHE on AudioPC in this topic and is related to our e-mail conversation where I sent to you small screenshot of the same error like Robert's (my photo in this topic)
- Both of us, Robert and I, removed some of W10 built-in 'Apps' under Windows Features, like '3D' app, 'OneDrive' app and several others that are not audio related. It looks like removing one of them (hopefully one) somehow leads to inability to install XXHE - instalation complains "The specified module could not be found ..." ful text here: http://www.phasure.com/index.php?topic=4043.msg43325#msg43325
