Internet Explorer is reporting that the signature of my Dante Via download is corrupt or invalid. Why is this?

Due to a temporary Windows security certificate issue, Internet Explorer may report that the signature of a downloaded Dante Via installer file is corrupt or invalid.

The downloaded file is not actually corrupt, and can be safely installed from your Downloads folder.

The signature validity issue will be resolved in an upcoming release.

I would like to route more than 2 channels of audio between a network and a software application. Does Dante Via support this?

Dante Via is designed for stereo applications. If you have a requirement to move higher numbers of audio channels between audio software and a Dante network, Audinate also provides Dante Virtual Soundcard, which supports up to 64 x 64 channels of audio. Please note Dante Virtual Soundcard acts as an audio interface only, and does not provide the routing functionality of Dante Via.

OS X: The Dante Via main window is empty, and the Activation panel is displaying the message 'Dante Via cannot connect to the Dante Via Manager Service'. Why is this?

This may be because your local hosts file (located at /etc/hosts) is corrupt. 

If you have edited your local hosts file, please check it for syntax errors.

Dante Via (Windows): What is Network Throttling?

In order to reserve processor resources for time-sensitive multimedia applications (including Windows audio applications), Windows implements a network bandwidth control called 'network throttling', which restricts the processing of non-multimedia network traffic when audio applications are running.

Network throttling can interfere with Dante audio traffic when Windows audio applications are running. For this reason, you can let Dante Via manage the network throttling setting on your PC, to prevent it from interfering with your Dante audio.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Dante Via during a trial, and now Dante Via is telling me that I can't start another trial on this computer.

You will need to manually restart the trial:

1. In Dante Via, open the Activation panel.
2. Click ‘Activate’, and then ‘Enter a License ID’.
3. If the License ID field is pre-populated with your existing license ID, just click ‘Activate’ again. 

If the License ID field is not pre-populated:
