HiQnet NetSetter v1.0-R2 (Windows)

Note: this is an old version. The current version is: HiQnet Audio Architect .NET 4.6 Fixer v1.0 (Windows Vista, 7, 8.1, 10).

System requirements:

32 (see below) & 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8


On April 8th 2014, Microsoft ended support for Windows XP. Without support, it becomes difficult to maintain software to allow it to run on unsupported operating systems. Though we have never officially supported it, NetSetter will run on Windows XP. This is to notify you that we will soon be removing the ability to run NetSetter on Windows XP so we can focus on supporting newer operating systems such as Windows 8.

At the same time we will no longer support 32-bit operating systems and support 64-bit operating systems only. The next major release (1.x) after September 1st 2014 will no longer run on Windows XP or 32-bit versions of Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. The only supported operating system after September 1st 2014 will be Windows Vista 64, Windows 7 64, Windows 8 64, and Windows 8.1 64.


HiQnet Netsetter is a simple tool to enable real-time configuration of discovered HiQnet device network settings.  It is applicable for use in conjunction with HiQnet software applications Audio Architect, London Architect and Performance Manager in order to establish network configuration prior to or while connecting with one or more of these system design applications.

Note - HiQnet NetSetter is installed automatically with Audio Architect and Performance Manager.  A separate download is not required.


For each discovered device, the following may be set:

      ●  IP address (can be set manually or set to DHCP / Auto-IP)
      ●  Subnet mask
      ●  Default gateway
      ●  HiQnet address (can be set manually or randomized)

NetSetter warns of conflicting HiQnet and IP address assignments, and to enable quick and easy configuration of multiple discovered devices, the view may be filtered by status to show only devices with:

      ●  HiQnet address conflicts
      ●  IP address conflictsAll conflicts
      ●  Locked (access controlled) devices
      ●  Devices set to DHCP / Auto IP

In addition, rack position or array position can be cleared for each device.
