DigaPorter: Conversion of AAC/M4a/MP4 Audio
If your DigaPorter processes involve also converting AAC Audio files!
DigaPorter is capable of handling the audio file formats .aac and .mp4
This is done be copying the decoder files into the program folder (usually a subdirectory of DigaSystem by the name of SAF) and registering the .ax files:
When running DigaPorter on e.g. Windows Server 2008 R2 - this is not enough!
You may see error messages in DigaPorter logfiles;
Convert file error: Fehler bei der Initialisierung der Transformation (0x8011)
This is caused by a missing Server component.
You need to install the Microsoft components for Desktop Experience which is a feature and can be installed inside the Server Manager.
These components include the Media Foundation Framework which is essential for these conversions, elements that are included with Wokstation environments since Vista, but not necessarily with the Server OS's.
Afterwards an update for this feature must be applied.
After a reboot, your audio conversion should work fine.
