1. Installing the software
Whether you are holding an installation CD in your hands or you downloaded the software from the internet, the first thing you want to do is install our Sunlite software.
Insert the installation CD in your computer (if you downloaded the software from the internet, you can skip this paragraph). Once the installation screen is open, select your language and click NEXT,
then accept the license agreement, and finally click on the INSTALL icon for Sunlite Suite.
Select the Setup language and accept the license agreement (again). Choose your installation folder (default is C:SL2006). The next screen will ask if you want to install the software with or without DEMO PAGES. If you are a beginner user, we recommend you install WITH demo pages.
Finally, the setup wizard will ask if you want to start the software in BEGINNER MODE. Again, if you are a beginner user, we recommend you click YES on the beginner mode option.
You are done! Now, it is time to start playing with our software.
2. Installing USB drivers
If you purchased a software package and received a USB to DMX interface, you will need to install the drivers for it. You can use the full software without the interface, but you will need this USB-DMX device if you want to control real lighting fixtures.
Windows will find the driver and will tell you the device is not validated, and will ask if you wish to continue. Although Microsoft does not have a numberical registry for this driver, there is no risk of incompatibility. Click "Continue Anyway".
You are done! But remember, the software detects the USB interface when it starts. This means that you must have the USB interface connected to your computer before you open the control software. Otherwise, there will be no communication between the software and the interface.
3. Using IP/Ethernet interfaces
If you purchased a Sunlite package with an IP/Ethernet interface, please refer to the Appendix section for instructions.
