Stand Alone Installation

A single user DADiSP license supports Microsoft Windows 64-bit or 32-bit.

DADiSP typically requires less than 40.0 MB of disk space for installation.

Installation Process

A single user, stand alone installation of DADiSP is a two step process:

  1. Media Installation
  2. Password File Authorization

Media Installation

To install DADiSP from your installation media (typically a CDROM or web download), run the SETUP program from the Start button. Select the RUN option and type:


where D:\ is the name of the drive with the installation media or the location of SETUP.EXE.

The SETUP installation program will prompt you for the destination drive and directory. The default directory is \Program Files\DSP67.

The installer automatically registers .dsp .mac, .men, .hed, .pan, .tab and .spl file extensions. This allows NotePad to treat these files as ASCII text.

The installer also registers the various ActiveX capabilities of DADiSP.


Your version of DADiSP may require an authorization password for your particular machine. A Password Request Form will be displayed after installation or when you first run DADiSP. To obtain your authorization password, contact DSP via Web, Email or FAX with your Password Request Form.
