Note: You cannot just copy SAMCast.exe into a folder, you must use the installer; otherwise the application will not work correctly. (Application will exit and/or have audio problems).
You will also need one license for each instance, you cannot run multiple instances with a single license key and all licenses MUST be for the same software version.
On your desktop, right click and select “New --> Shortcut” from the context menu.
In the shortcut wizard select the browse button and browse to the SAMCast.exe file in your SAM Cast installation.
Typically this would be under “C:\Program Files (x86)\SpacialAudio\SAMCast\SAMCast.exe”.
In the textbox showing this path on the wizard now add the text: /INSTANCE=SAM123
"C:\Program Files (x86)\SpacialAudio\SAMCast\SAMCast.exe /INSTANCE=SAM123"
Using SAM123 provides an unique name for this shortcut.
If you create another shortcut and give it another name then it will start a different instance of SAM and this way you would be able to launch multiple instances of SAM. For example adding – /INSTANCE=SAMRadio1 to another shortcut will launch a separate instance of SAM.
Tip: For the name do not use any spaces and stick to “Alphanumerical” characters (i.e. A-Z and 0-9)
The full text in the location textbox will then look something like this:
“C:\Program Files (x86)\SpacialAudio\SAMCast\SAMCast.exe” /INSTANCE=SAMRadio1
Click on “NEXT”, select a name for the shortcut (like SAM123).
Click finish and you are set.
Repeat this process with different names for /INSTANCE=SAMRadio1 parameter for each of the different instances you want to launch.
To shutdown all instances the application could run with the /SHUTDOWNALL flag.
