This website gives you a brief overview of the steps you have to perform to start working with dSPACE software.
Step 1: Purchase
Please contact your local sales representatives. They will assist you in selecting the appropriate software components. You will then receive a quotation with the selected software. You can use the quotation to place the order.
Step 2: Delivery
In case of a single user license, you will receive USB dongles by mail. The dongles are used for license protection. We will also send you an e-mail that contains License Overview files. These files provide the required license information, e.g., ticket IDs for the licenses. There is one ticket ID for each software product. You will need the IDs for license activation in Step 6.
Step 3: mydSPACE Login
mydSPACE gives you personalized access to 'registered user' content in addition to the public content on the dSPACE website. For the dSPACE software download, a myDSPACE account is mandatory. As a registered user, you benefit from additional information on your product, such as updates, patches, or customer webinars (after activation by dSPACE).
If you do not yet have a mydSPACE account, please create one. Log on with your business e-mail address. If your account is registered for accessing support information, the download will be available. In some cases, registration for support information is granted automatically. If you cannot access this service, request the access to support information by providing the relevant dongle number. The dongle number is printed directly on the dongle or on the dongle tag in the 3-xxxx format.
If you have an older dongle with a 5 digit number, you can also enter it.
If, for any reason, there is no dongle at hand, please enter a ‘00000’ in the form. The request will then be checked manually.
In case of problems contact dSPACE support.
Step 4: Software Download
Download dSPACE release software or dSPACE solutions from the dSPACE website. Select the release that contains your dSPACE software products and download the image file.
Step 5: Installation
Use the downloaded image file to install the dSPACE software. Install the product sets that contain the products or solutions you want to use and for which you have licenses.

Step 7: Decryption of Software and Documentation
As you can install dSPACE software without licenses, several parts of the software are encrypted. To use dSPACE software, decrypt the encrypted parts of the installed software products by using the dongle with the licenses you just activated.
