Be sure which version you bought and which license you have!

A v5.x license won't work with v6.x as you need to buy an upgrade.

The v5.x can still work with a dongle licenes as v6.x works with a online license system.

Keep in mind that the Aircast upgrade is installed in a new folder next to the old version, it will ask to import the old settings at the first startup!

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: My Aircast doesn't seem to be able to import the correct song Title and Artist from my ID3 tags and filenames. What am I doing wrong?
Answer: For importing ID3 tags you need to install the “BASS_AAC” add-on.
Without that add-on, AAC/M4A files can be played with the help of the Windows-provided codec, but no metadata can be extracted.
We're not allowed to ship the DLL ourselves due to the AAC patent restrictions.
