A network license allows DADiSP to be installed in one central
location, called the server
, but supports access by one or more local
machines that are connected to the server, called clients
the distribution is installed on a common server, the DADiSP executable always
runs on the local client at full speed.
DADiSP network version implements a floating
license such that the software
can be run from any client machine that has access to the server. The
number of allowed simultaneous users is determined by your license

automatically verified, no additional software is required to insure
DADiSP network licenses support servers running any Microsoft network
protocol and clients running Microsoft Windows 64-bit or 32-bit.

A multi-user, network installation of DADiSP is a three step process:
- Server Installation
- Password and License File Authorization
- Client Machine Registration
Install DADiSP to the server from any machine except
itself. In other words, make sure to install DADiSP on the server from
a client machine
To install DADiSP from CDROM, run the SETUP program from the Start
button. Select the RUN option and type:
The SETUP installation program will prompt you for the destination drive
and directory. Make sure the directory is available to each client
machine that will access DADiSP. The default directory is
X:\Program Files\DSP67 where X is a network drive detected by the
Installation Folder Read/Write Access
Each client requires read and write access to the DADiSP installation
directory. Contact DSP if this is not possible or preferable and we
can guide you through alternative installation strategies.
The network version of DADiSP requires an authorization password for your
network. A Password Request Form will be displayed when you
first install DADiSP on the server. To obtain your authorization password, contact DSP
via Web, Email or FAX with your Password Request Form.
We will respond with your password file and a license
file. These files must be installed in the same directory as the
DADiSP installation. This procedure need only be completed once and
is valid for all client machines.
To configure DADiSP to execute on a client machine, run the following
program from the command prompt on each client:
where X:\network is the location of the DADiSP executable on the
network drive. The registration process will copy the necessary files
to the client machine, create local program icons and establish a local
