Installing and activating DRS 2006 - The radio automation software Version 4

Before you start installing the full DRS 2006 Version 4 Package, please be sure you have deinstalled the demo of DRS 2006 version 4. The demo version does not have all functions of the full version and it cannot be unlocked. If you already have DRS 2006 V2.2 or lower on your PC, you can install V4 alongside the former without any problems. Both versions can be used simultaneously.

Installing DRS 2006 - The radio automation software Version 4
To install DRS 2006 you need to unzip the package you downloaded from our secure site to a chosen location on your Computer. Now double click on the EXE file (defined by a speaker icon) to start the installation. The Welcome Screen will be the first dialog box you will see. Then click 'Next'.

DRS 2006 Version 4 Installation #1

Next is displayed the most important part of the DRS 2006 installation: The license agreement between you and DRS Systemtechnik. Please be sure to read and fully understand the information contained before clicking 'I accept the agreement'. If you do not agree with the terms and conditions of the agreement, please click 'I do not accept the agreement' to abort the installation. Now click 'Next'.

DRS 2006 Version 4 Installation #2

Now the Setup will ask you where the software should be installed and it will also ask you where it should put the program short cuts in the Start Menu. You can either leave the default destinations or you can chose any other location. You do not necessarily need to put your audio files in the same location, so do not worry about disc space. The audio files can be on a different drive or share in the network. Again click 'Next' twice to proceed.

DRS 2006 Version 4 Installation #3

Now the Setup will ask you if you also want to create a desktop icon. To do so, you can select the check box and press 'Next'.

Next you will see all information you have entered and the setup is ready to install the software. If there is something wrong, you can of course always press 'Back' and change your settings. Otherwise click 'Install' to proceed.

Activating DRS 2006 - The radio automation software Version 4
When first starting DRS 2006 Version 4, you need to activate the software once. During the activation process you need to be connected to internet, so the software can reach our authentication server. If you have a firewall installed, it may ask you for permission to access the internet. Please allow the software to connect to the internet to finalize the activation.

DRS 2006 Version 4 Activation #1

Here you type in the license key which you have received with your order information. Now hit 'OK' and the software will be activated automatically.

It is also possible to activate the software if you are using it on a PC which does not have an internet connection. In this case you press "Create File" and a license file will be created on your desktop. Now our Customer Help Desk we will give you an email address where you can send this file. We will then generate a license file and send it right back to you. The license file can be imported by pressing "Import License". This process also activates the software.

Please be aware that you can only activate the software on a single PC. If your PC crashes for some reason or if you want to install the software on a new or different PC, then please also contact our Customer Help Desk. In this case we will reset the hardware key on our authentication server and you can activate it once more.

If you have problems activating the software, please contact our Customer Help Desk. We are there for you 24/7.

After successfully activating the software, the DRS 2006 should start normally and you should see the main workspace.
