How to Download Steel Pen and Register Buttons - DLS

In order to download the Steel Pen using the DLS (downloading station) you will need to have the Deggy Control software installed and the DLS plugged in via USB cable. The software will indicate whether it recognizes (finds) the DLS by displaying the DLS icon on the bottom right hand side of the Deggy Control main menu. If there is an 'X' over the icon this is an indication that the DLS is not being found (recognized) by the software. Access FAQ's for DLS troubleshooting errors.
