DLS IV will require the following applications to be installed: 1. .NET Framework 3.5

2. MSSQL Express

3. Visual C++ Runtime components

During the installation process, DLS IV will detect any missing applications and will automatically install them for you. However, to speed the installation process, these applications may be installed manually by the user before starting the DLS IV installation.


Download the DLS IV Updater from DSC homepage


DLS IV is built with tomorrow in mind. It runs on Microsoft's powerful .NET Framework 3.5 and MSSQL Express database engine. If you do not currently have these software packages installed, the DLS IV installer will automatically download the latest version directly from for you, and install them without any unnecessary intervention from you, the user.

The installation process begins with the DLS IV Updater. This updater will manage the rest of the installation process for you, and will provide updates in the future as DSC rolls out additional driver packs and feature updates.

Here's a brief rundown of the installation steps you'll see:

1. Install the DLS IV Updater

2. DLS IV Updater installation will check for prerequisite applications (VC++ Runtime, .NET Framwork 3.5 and MSSQL Express)

3. If missing, .NET Framework 3.5 will be downloaded directly from and will be automatically launched

4. If missing, MSSQL Express will be downloaded directly from and will be automatically launched

5. If missing, Visual C++ Runtime components will be downloaded directly from and will be automatically launched

6. The DLS IV Updater will launch and display the latest available DLS IV products. Choose the DLS IV Engine and any of the available driver packs you need.

7. The selected components will be downloaded directly from the DSC FTP site, and will be installed.

8. Close the DLS IV Updater software and start using DLS IV.


The default administrator username/password for DLS IV is: Username = admin Password = 1234 It is strongly recommended that you change the Administrator's password immediately after installing. The default username/password for earlier DSC downloading products is supported, but it is limited to "User" priveleges, it is not an "Administrator" account. Username = DSC Password = 1234
