Follow these three simple steps to get up and running:


1. Download and Install

Download the latest DS-5 installer, then follow the instructions for your platform:

Extract the installer files from the downloaded zip file, run setup.exe, then follow the simple on-screen installation instructions.

If you have an earlier release of DS-5 already installed, you can install this release on top of it and an upgrade is automatically performed.

Note During installation you will be prompted to install device drivers and may receive warnings such as "Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software"; you can safely ignore these warnings and continue with installation.

Extract the installer from the downloaded archive file, run (not source) install_x86_32.sh or install_x86_64.sh and follow the on-screen instructions. The installer unpacks DS-5 into your chosen directory, and optionally installs device drivers and desktop shortcuts.

It is recommended you delete any previous release of DS-5 before installing a new release; the installer guides you through this process. Alternatively, you can install it into a different directory.

Note The installer includes device drivers that require you to run with root privileges.


2. License Vybrid Controller Edition

Open up the license manager. If this is your first time using the product, then a popup dialog will ask you if you wish to open license manager, otherwise it can be opened from the Help menu.

Select the Add button to add a new license. This will open the add license wizard.

Select the option Enter a serial number or activation code to obtain a license and enter the serial number that came with your Vybrid controller.

Click Next and follow the instructions in the dialog. Click Finish when done, which will close the dialog and show the new license in the license manager. The license manager can now be closed as the product is ready to use.

Activation Code

Use the Arm license serial number that came with your Vybrid MCU module for the Tower System.
