Dante Virtual Soundcard licenses are non-portable. When the license is activated, it becomes permanently locked to the physical computer on which it was activated, and it cannot be moved to another computer after activation.
Dante Virtual Soundcard can however be uninstalled, reinstalled and reactivated on the same physical computer any number of times, except in some situations where significant changes have been made to the fundamental hardware configuration of the computer (for example, if an internal hard drive or network interface has been added or removed).
If you are unable to reactivate Dante Virtual Soundcard on a computer which was previously running the software successfully, please complete the support form here.

The latest Audinate PCIe-R card driver for macOS does however support 10.12 Sierra. Note that you cannot use this driver for Focusrite or Yamaha cards.
Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, it is a relatively new technology, and some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronisation performance and occasional dropouts.
As of July 2013, the Dante-MY16-AUD product box includes updated documentation. The Dante-MY16-AUD card itself is unchanged. As part of this update, we have changed the way you redeem the Dante Virtual Soundcard License bundled with your Dante-MY16-AUD purchase.
If your product box contains a 'Download Your Software' card (like the one shown below) with a DVS token label on it, you can redeem the DVS token for a Dante Virtual Soundcard license ID here: Redeem DVS Token
As of this date, we no longer record or track the serial numbers of the Dante-MY16-AUD cards. If the card above was missing from your product box, or if you have misplaced the card, we do not track which DVS Tokens were included in each Dante-MY16-AUD product box. Yamaha provides exclusive distribution and support for the Dante-MY16-AUD card. Support information can be accessed by contacting your authorized Yamaha Pro Audio Dealer.
If your product box contains a DVD like the one shown below (and no 'Download Your Software' card), you will need to contact support (see below).
To proceed, you will need to know your Dante-MY16-AUD card serial number. You can find your Dante-MY16-AUD serial number:
You can submit your serial number using the form at the bottom of the Dante Software Support page (be sure to select 'Licensing & Registration' as the Case Reason).
