Clipster software Installation and licensing Instructions

Stephen Birdsong -

Installation Instructions:

Exit the Clipster application, and make sure all other DVS applications (DVSConf, DVSInfo) are also closed.

Download the zip and extract the folder to c:install / software / clipster directory (it could be anywhere, but this is where we normally keep all the codes).

Run the SetupClipster.....exe, this will uninstall the previous version and install the new version.


You might also need to update the firmware. Two separate firmware updates are required.

Switch to the Firmware folder for your system type.

You can double click on each executable file, which will ask you to confirm update by pressing "y" and hitting "enter". If you've selected the wrong system type, you will get an error. 

Upon confirming firmware update, it will take 2-3 minutes to flash the firmware.

After the firmware upgrade, make sure to shutdown (power off) and restart for new firmware to take effect.

To verify the license is set correctly, click Setup > Info License, the bottom pane should show a list of enabled features, if the list is empty with just "License Info' then please reapply the procedure again.
