Liability dSPACE GmbH and its subsidiaries accept no liability for property
damage or personal injury resulting from improper or noncontractual
use of this product, or from incorrect operation by insufficiently
qualified staff.
If you do not accept the above restrictions, you can return this product
at the expense of dSPACE GmbH within one (1) month of receiving it.
The purchase price will then be refunded to you immediately.
Data loss during operating
system shutdown
The shutdown procedure of Microsoft Windows operating systems
causes some required processes to be aborted although they are still
being used by dSPACE software. To avoid data loss, the dSPACE
software must be terminated manually before a PC shutdown is
performed.
WARNI NG
Improper or negligent use can result in serious
personal injury and/or property damage.
Using the dSPACE software can have a direct effect on
technical systems (electrical, hydraulic, mechanical)
connected to it.
The risk of property damage or personal injury also exists
when the dSPACE software is controlled via an
automation interface. The dSPACE software is then part
of an overall system and may not be visible to the end
user. It nevertheless produces a direct effect on the
technical system via the controlling application that uses
the automation interface.
n Only persons who are qualified to use dSPACE
software, and who have been informed of the above
dangers and possible consequences, are permitted to
use this software.
n All applications where malfunctions or misoperation
involve the danger of injury or death must be
examined for potential hazards by the user, who must
if necessary take additional measures for protection
(for example, an emergency off switch).

Introduction to dSPACE Setup Programs
Objective dSPACE Release 7.3 features various setup programs, to install the
different software products available on the DVD.
Installation types The setup programs will guide you through the installation of the
software. To handle the installation scenarios, the dSPACE DVD
contains different types of setup programs:
n A global setup program (dSPACE Master Setup) to install dSPACE
software from dSPACE Release 7.3. With it you can install a single
software product (or software package) in a new folder. In addition
you also can install two or more software products in different new
folders in one run.
The dSPACE_MasterSetup.exe setup program is located in the root
folder of the DVD.
n Single setup programs to install a specific dSPACE software product
(or software package). The following are available:
o Install_RCP_HIL.exe to install the RCP and HIL software
o Install_AutomationDesk.exe to install AutomationDesk
o Install_ControlDesk.exe to install ControlDesk Next
Generation
o Install_TargetLink.exe, Install_TargetLink_x64.exe to install
TargetLink (32-bit or 64-bit version)
o Install_TargetLinkBlockset.exe,
Install_TargetLinkBlockset_x64.exe to install the license-free
(stand-alone) TargetLink Blockset (32-bit or 64-bit version)
o Install_MdlCmp.exe, Install_MdlCmp_x64.exe to install Model
Compare (32-bit or 64-bit version)
o Install_SystemDesk.exe to install SystemDesk
"RCP and HIL software" is a generic term for a
software package containing several dSPACE
software products, for example RTI, ControlDesk,
ConfigurationDesk, MotionDesk, ModelDesk. These
software products are installed in a common folder.
Use single setup programs only for specific installation
tasks, for example, for preconfigured automatic
installations.
Before You Start
Quick Software Installation Guide May 2012 11
I

The single setup programs are located in the /Products folder of
the DVD for Release 7.3.
n dSPACE Maintenance Setup helps you modify (add components or
remove them) and repair the corresponding installation. In addition
you can remove the installation completely.
The dSPACE Maintenance Setup is available in product-specific
versions for the following products: RCP and HIL software,
TargetLink, TargetLink Blockset, Model Compare, ControlDesk Next
Generation, SystemDesk, AutomationDesk.
You can access the product-specific versions of the dSPACE
Maintenance Setup after installation of the dSPACE software via
Start Programs dSPACE <Product x.y> dSPACE Maintenance
Setup (<Product x.y>) and via the Windows Control Panel.
The term dSPACE Maintenance Setup is used in this documentation
for all software product-specific versions of this setup.
n Setup programs for common software tools
Common software tools, for example, the DCI Configuration Tool,
are used by several dSPACE products. For maximum independence,
these tools have their own setup programs.
The setup programs are located in /Tools/<SoftwareTool>/ on the
dSPACE DVD.
Installation methods The dSPACE setup programs provide two installation methods:
n Interactive installation (= standard installation)
n Preconfigured automatic installation
You can record an initial interactive installation and then use it to
install dSPACE software on several host PCs automatically. For
basics and instructions on initializing and running a preconfigured
automatic installation, refer to Preconfigured Automatic
Installations ( Software Installation and Management Guide).
Various common software tools are also installed with
other dSPACE software via the dSPACE Master Setup,
if the required license information is available during
installation.

Important Changes and Improvements to dSPACE Setup
Improving dSPACE
software installation
As of dSPACE Release 7.0, improvements are being made to the
installation programs for dSPACE software. The software architecture
has been redesigned to reduce dependencies between products.
The aim is to ensure that software installations have maximal flexibility
in installation and maximal run-time compatibility. This means that
dSPACE products can be used in parallel after software installation,
even if they are installed in different folders.
dSPACE Release 7.3 is an intermediate step towards this aim. Some
products do not yet support all new features. For further information,
refer to this documentation.
Installation in separate
folders
dSPACE software products (or software packages) with their own
setup programs must be installed in separate new folders. Afterwards
you can run the products without restrictions in usage. For example,
you can work with several installations simultaneously and quickly
change from one installation to another.
You can work with several software products from different releases
and installations on your host PC in parallel, if they are run-time-
compatible. For details, refer to Run-Time-Compatibility of dSPACE
Software on page 44.
With some products such as TargetLink, it is possible to use multiple
parallel installations of the same software version on your host PC. For
details, refer to Notes and Tips for Using Multiple Installations on Your
Host PC on page 16.
Improved MATLAB
integration
If you want to work with dSPACE software which requires MATLAB, a
MATLAB installation must be integrated into the dSPACE software.
Only an integrated (= connected) MATLAB installation is prepared for
use with dSPACE software.
Thus, you can perform MATLAB integration either during the initial
installation of dSPACE software or at a later date.
dSPACE software is now installed with all the components
required for MATLAB integration, even if MATLAB is not
installed on your host PC. Thus, it is no longer necessary
to install MATLAB before you install dSPACE software.
You can install MATLAB after the dSPACE software
without restrictions in usage.
Before You Start
Quick Software Installation Guide May 2012 13

To support this feature, the dSPACE setup programs and the dSPACE
Installation Manager let you connect to MATLAB installations simply by
selecting checkboxes. The illustration below serves as an example and
shows the possible combinations of MATLAB software and dSPACE
installations:
n It is possible to connect a single dSPACE installation to several
MATLAB installations.
n Several dSPACE installations can be connected to one MATLAB
installation. It is no longer a requirement that each dSPACE
installation (to be used with MATLAB) needs a separate MATLAB
installation. This reduces installation time and disk space.

n You can install a new MATLAB installation on your host PC without
reinstalling dSPACE software. To use the new installation, you just
have to connect it to the dSPACE software.
n You can connect only compatible MATLAB installations to a dSPACE
installation. For an overview of compatible products on dSPACE
Release 7.3, refer to Required MATLAB Releases on page 21.
n Only products with the same bit version can be connected and used
together. For example, TargetLink's 64-bit version can be connected
to a 64-bit version but not to a 32-bit version of MATLAB.
If you have connected several MATLAB installations to your dSPACE
installation, you must choose (mark) one of them as the preferred
connection. If you connect only one MATLAB installation, this
automatically is the preferred MATLAB installation.
A preferred connection is the default MATLAB installation which is
used by the dSPACE products, for example, when dSPACE software
products generate specific MATLAB files or automatically start
MATLAB. You can change the preferred MATLAB installation via the
dSPACE Installation Manager anytime after initial installation of
dSPACE software.
Improved license handling As of dSPACE Release 7.2 license handling also has been improved. A
separate license file is now available for each installation. The dSPACE
Installation Manager makes it easy to display and manage license
information. Note that handling dSPACE licenses is necessary only in
specific use scenarios.
Preconfigured automatic
installations
The dSPACE setup programs are based on the MSI technology from
Microsoft. They have their own configuration program, dSPACE Setup,
which installs the MSI setups and enables automatic preconfigured
software installation. It is therefore not possible to use third-party MSI
deployment tools which use MSI transformations for automatic
installation on several PCs.
Using the record mode of the setup porgrams you can record the
installation configuration of dSPACE software and use the generated
configuration file to install the software on other PCs automatically in
setup's unattended mode (manual inputs are unnecessary). You can
also automatically install several setups successively via batch file.
For more detailed instructions, refer to Preconfigured Automatic
Installations ( Software Installation and Management Guide).

Notes and Tips for Using Multiple Installations on Your Host
PC
Objective You should note the following guidelines when you want to install
multiple versions of dSPACE software on your host PC.
Multiple installation of
different releases
If you want to install different releases of the same software product,
you have to install them in different folders on your host PC, for
example:
n RCP and HIL software of dSPACE Release 7.3 in
D:\dSPACERCPHIL7.3, and RCP and HIL software of dSPACE Release
7.2 in D:\dSPACERCPHIL7.2
n TargetLink 3.3 in D:\TargetLink3.3, and TargetLink 3.2 in
D:\TargetLink3.2
Multiple installation of
same releases
The guidelines for installing multiple instances of the same release,
depend on the software product you use.
RCP and HIL software You have to install each instance of the
same release in a different folder, for example, one instance of the RCP
and HIL software from dSPACE Release 7.3 in D:\dSPACERCPHIL7.3_1 ,
and another instance of the RCP and HIL software from dSPACE
Release 7.3 in D:\dSPACERCPHIL7.3_2.
Up to 15 instances of the same RCP and HIL software release can be
installed on your host PC.
dSPACE software products can only be installed in
separate new folders. Products of the RCP and HIL
software package are installed in a common new folder.
You cannot install products and product modules (which
are part of a specific software product or software
package) in an installation of a different release, for
example:
n ConfigurationDesk 4.2 (part of dSPACE Release 7.3) in
a Release 7.2 software installation.
n Data Dictionary Manager 3.3 (part of TargetLink 3.3) in
a TargetLink 3.2 software installation.
Before You Start
Quick Software Installation Guide May 2012 17
I

One of your RCP and HIL software installations is known as the active
installation. If you want to work with a specific deactivated
installation, you have to activate it first and then reboot your host PC
before you can use a product of the desired installation.
TargetLink You have to install each instance of the same release in
a different folder, for example, one instance of TargetLink 3.3 in
D:\TargetLink3.3_1, and and another instance of TargetLink 3.3 in
D:\TargetLink3.3_2
Up to 15 instances of the 32-bit version and up to 15 instances of the
64-bit version of the same TargetLink release can be installed on your
host PC.
You can run multiple instances of MATLAB independently, so multiple
instances of TargetLink can also run in parallel, but only one TargetLink
instance per instance of MATLAB. This lets you, for example, compare
the generated production code of different MATLAB/TargetLink
installations simultaneously.
Unlike TargetLink, the same release of the TargetLink Blockset (stand-
alone) can only be installed once on your host PC.
Model Compare You can install only one instance of the 32-bit
version and one instance of the 64-bit version of Model Compare on
your host PC. Multiple installation of one version of the same release is
not supported. However, you can install different releases of Model
Compare on your host PC.
All other products with own setup program You can install
only one instance of these software products (for example,
ControlDesk Next Generation, AutomationDesk, SystemDesk,
common software tools) on your host PC. Multiple installation of the
same release is not supported. However, you can install different
releases of them on your host PC.

Preconditions for Installing dSPACE Software
Installation folder The folder in which you want to install the software must not contain
any other software. You cannot install the software in a new subfolder
of an existing dSPACE installation.
Limitation Since parentheses in the path name can cause problems
in conjunction with third-party software, make sure to choose
installation paths for the dSPACE software, MATLAB, and third-party
compilers without parentheses.
System requirements Your system must meet specific system requirements. Refer to Host PC
Hardware on page 37 and Operating System on page 41.
Administrator rights You need administrator rights to install dSPACE software.
If you are not sure whether you have administrator rights, check them.
For instructions, refer to How to Check Administrator Rights
( Software Installation and Management Guide).
System protection
software
Make sure that the installation is not blocked by system protection
software like Windows Defender, firewalls or anti-virus software. It is
recommended to disable this software during installation.
Power-saving states The installation process must not be interrupted by your host PC
activating a power-saving state triggered by a user action or by
Microsoft Windows. An interrupted dSPACE installation cannot be
continued after you have woken up your PC. It is recommended to
disable all power-saving states (for example, the sleep or the
hibernation state) during installation.
Valid only for Windows 7:
User Account Control
It is recommended to disable Windows User Account Control (UAC)
during the installation of dSPACE software. If you cannot disable it,
you should note the following Windows behavior: If UAC is enabled,
the setup programs run with the administrator account instead of the
user account. Therefore it is important that the administrator account
has access to the required drives, particularly to the required network
drives.
ST M
Before You Start
Quick Software Installation Guide May 2012 19
I

Valid only for RCP and HIL
software: Required user
rights
To work with the RCP and HIL software, you need modify permissions
(write and read access) for the <InstallationFolder> folder (and all
subfolders).
If you install software on the system partition (that is, the partition
where Windows is installed) and this partition is formatted as an NTFS
partition, nonadministrators usually have only read-only access to it.
To ensure that every user can work with the RCP and HIL software
without restrictions:
n Install the RCP and HIL software on a partition where the operating
system is not installed, or
n After installation, give the software users modify permissions for
the <InstallationFolder> folder (and all subfolders)
3-D object library of MotionDesk and ModelDesk To change
objects in the 3-D object library as a user with restricted rights, you
need write access to the library root folder (e.g.,
C:\3DLibrary\md3dlib).
Write access is necessary because objects in the library are also
changed if you work with the ModelDesk Road Generator or
ModelDesk Traffic Editor.
Required licenses The Keys.dsp and License.dsp license files provide all the license
information which you need for the dSPACE software you want to
install.
If you order dSPACE software as a package, you receive the merged
license information with the software. If not, you must merge the
license information yourself. Refer to Basics on Merging License
Information ( Software Installation and Management Guide).
It is important to give modify permissions for the
<InstallationFolder> folder (and all subfolders) after
the software is installed. Otherwise, software users get
modify permissions for the <InstallationFolder>
folder, but not for all the subfolders that are created
during the installation of the RCP and HIL software.
ST M
Before You Start
Quick Software Installation Guide May 2012

Unpacking received license files Before sending the license files
via e-mail, dSPACE creates a ZIP archive which contains the license files
and changes the file name extension of the ZIP archive to avoid
firewall problems. When you receive the license files, you have to
change the file name extension from .piz to .zip. Each ZIP archive
contains two or three files which have to be unpacked before installing
the software. Save all these files to one folder which you specify
during installation.
Third-party software The required third-party software must be installed.
Some dSPACE products require specific third-party products to be
installed. You must install some of these first, before installing the
dSPACE products, to ensure correct operation and full functionality.
Refer to Third-Party Software on page 47.

Modifying the MATLAB Installation by dSPACE Software
Objective dSPACE software modifies some files of the MATLAB installation
during installation procedure or by changing the MATLAB integration
(via dSPACE Installation Manager) , to improve the handling between
MATLAB and the dSPACE software.
Modifiying MATLAB's
startup file
At startup time, MATLAB automatically executes the matlabrc.m file.
dSPACE Setup (and the dSPACE Installation Manager) modifies this file
by adding the dspacerc function call to the script, depending on the
location where MATLAB is installed.
dSPACE software does not check whether MATLAB is installed in a
network or locally on your host PC. If MATLAB is installed in a
network, you must have modify rights for the matlabrc.m file and the
MATLAB folder that contains it:
n If you do not have modify rights, dSPACE Setup (and the dSPACE
Installation Manager) cannot integrate the MATLAB installation and
issue an error message.
n If you have modify rights, dSPACE Setup (and the dSPACE
Installation Manager) modify matlabrc.m automatically.
Modifying MATLAB
warnings for P-coded files
Because MATLAB will not support P-coded files generated prior to
MATLAB version 7.5 (R2007b) in the future, MATLAB R2010b displays
warning messages when older P-coded files are opened. These files
should be regenerated.
Warning: The P-code file abc.p was generated prior to MATLAB
version 7.5 (R2007b) and will not be supported in a future
release. Use pcode to regenerate abc.p using MATLAB R2007b or
later.
Because dSPACE supports a wide range of MATLAB versions, there are
a lot of P-coded files that will be detected by this MATLAB check. To
reduce warning messages to the most relevant, dSPACE software
disables the above mentioned oldPfileVersion warning.
You can reactivate the warning by entering
warning on MATLAB:oldPfileVersion
in the MATLAB Command Window.
To deactivate the warning, enter:
warning off MATLAB:oldPfileVersion

Installing dSPACE Software
Where to go from here Information in this section
Information Requested By the Setup Programs
Naming of installation
folder
When installing your dSPACE software, the setup program asks you for
the name of the installation folder. This guide and other documents
refer to this folder as <InstallationFolder>. The path name of the
installation folder can contain spaces.
As of dSPACE Release 6.1, all dSPACE products on the DVD allow
spaces in the path name of the installation folder.
Limitation Since parentheses in the path name in conjunction with
3third party software can cause problems, make sure to choose
installation paths for the dSPACE software, MATLAB and third-party
compilers without parentheses.
Licenses For license-protected products you have to provide valid license
information. The setup program asks you for the location of the
license files (*.keys and *.dsp ).
Floating network licenses If you have purchased floating
network licenses, specify the following when prompted during
installation:
n The name or IP address of the dSPACE License Server
Information Requested By the Setup Programs 25

26

n The TCP/IP port used for the management of dSPACE licenses
If you leave the TCP/IP port edit field empty, the software
automatically determines a free port in the default port range 27
000 27 009. In this case, the edit field must also be left empty
during installation of the dSPACE License Server.
Compiler installation Some dSPACE products require a compiler to compile applications. The
accompanying setup program asks for the installation path of this
compiler. You can:
n Specify the path of already installed compilers
n Specify the path of compilers that are to be installed by the setup
program
n Skip specifying the path for compilers you do not want to use
MATLAB integration MATLAB is required for work with various dSPACE products. The setup
program asks for the MATLAB installations on your host PC to be
linked to the dSPACE software.
You can also perform MATLAB integration at a later date after
installing dSPACE software.
Parts of a software
package/software product
to be installed
During installation you have to specify the parts (products and
modules) of a software package or of a software product which you
want to install and which you do not want to install. The installation of
some software modules is controlled only via license information. The
Select Components dialog does not list these modules (for you to select
or deselect them) during setup.
Note that you can install only products and modules which are license-
free or for which license information is available.
MotionDesk: Path of the
3-D object library
When selecting the path of the 3-D object library, note the following
points:
n Specify a path outside <InstallationFolder> to ensure the path is
independent for later dSPACE Releases.
n If you want to use your scenes on different computers, ensure that
the 3-D object library is installed in a folder with identical pathname
on all computers.
As of dSPACE Release 7.0, you have to specify the
compilers required for TargetLink in the TargetLink
Preferences Editor after installing TargetLink.

Third-party software is automatically installed during setup, if the
software is not available on your PC, for example:
n Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
n Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0
n Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributables
n Microsoft Windows Installer 4.5
n Python 2.5.1 is installed during the setup of ControlDesk Next
Generation, SystemDesk, AutomationDesk and RCP and HIL
software (for products that require Python).
n Microsoft SQL Express is installed during setup of SystemDesk.
Method To install dSPACE software
1 Insert the dSPACE DVD into the DVD drive.
2 Close all running programs including Windows Explorer before
continuing the installation.
The installation process must not be interrupted by your
host PC activating a power-saving state triggered by a

32-bit process. 32-bit versions of Windows can address only up to 3.2
GB of memory in total for all running processes including the
operating system itself.
Some additional limitations apply when you use a 64-bit Windows
operating system with dSPACE software. Refer to Limitations for 64-Bit
Windows Operating Systems in Combination with dSPACE 32-Bit
Software on page 46.
Allowing communication
via additional firewall
rules
During installation of the dSPACE software, two additional Windows
firewall rules are installed. The first rule allows communication with a
dSPACE expansion box, for example, AutoBox. The second rule allows
MotionDesk to receive motion data from a network channel.
The rules are created by the following commands:
n advfirewall firewall add rule name="dSPACE Net Service"
service=any dir=in action=allow profile=any
protocol=icmpv4:0, any description="Allow the dSPACE Net
Service to connect to a dSPACE expansion box via network."
n advfirewall firewall add rule name="dSPACE MotionDesk"
program="%dspace_root%\MotionDesk\Bin\MotionDesk.exe"
n Windows XP Professional x64 Edition is not supported
in general.
n The 64-bit versions of TargetLink and Model Compare
require Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, or
Enterprise (64-bit version) with Service Pack 1.
Other 64-bit operating systems (Windows XP and
Windows Vista) are not supported.
n ControlDesk Next Generation can also be installed on
the MicroAutoBox Embedded PC, running under
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit version).

Operating system on
dSPACE License Server
If you purchased floating network licenses, you have to install and
configure one of the networked PCs as the dSPACE License Server.
The operating system of the dSPACE License Server must be one of the
following:
n Windows XP Professional (32-bit version) with Service Pack 3
n Windows Vista Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise (32-bit or 64-bit
version) with the latest Service Pack

Run-Time-Compatibility of dSPACE Software
Definition Run-time compatibility means:
n dSPACE products can be used in parallel after software installation,
even if they are installed in different folders.
n dSPACE products without interaction can run independently of
each other.
General notes on
limitations
If dSPACE products interact directly (for example, through automation
interfaces) or indirectly (for example, through common file types like
.a2l) limitations may apply. For major limitations, see below. For minor
limitations, refer to the appropriate product documentation.
In rare cases, an additional patch must be installed for a product to
achieve run-time compatibility. For information on, whether a patch is
necessary and for the patch itself, refer to
http://www.dspace.com/go/CompPatch.
Compatibility of products
in dSPACE Release 7.3
Each software product in dSPACE Release 7.3 is run-time-compatible
with the other software products in dSPACE Release 6.6 up to dSPACE
Release 7.3. Note that RCP and HIL software products (on Release 7.3)
cannot be used in combination with RCP and HIL software products
from earlier dSPACE Releases.
Limitations for TargetLink and ModelCompare
n With Model Compare 2.1 (on dSPACE Release 7.1) and earlier, you
can not dump TargetLink 3.3 models. If you need to dump
TargetLink 3.3 models with Model Compare 2.1, contact dSPACE
support for a compatibility patch.
n The 64-bit version of TargetLink cannot be used in combination
with the 32-bit version of Model Compare and vice versa because
you can work only with a bit-compatible MATLAB version (32-bit or
64-bit).
Limitation for ControlDesk Next Generation (= ControlDesk as
of ControlDesk 4.0) When ControlDesk 4.2.1 is used with dSPACE
Release 7.0 or earlier, limitations regarding Real-Time Testing (RTT)
apply. Simulink models compiled with these releases are not supported
by the Signal Editor (for signal generation) and for CAN Data Replay of
the Bus Navigator. For details, refer to Problem with Incompatibility
Between RTT 1.9 and 1.6 ( Software Installation and Management
Guide).

Limitations for Windows Vista/Windows 7
Objective Some limitations apply when you use Windows Vista/Windows 7 in
combination with dSPACE software.
MATLAB support For system requirements of MathWorks

software, refer to
http://www.mathworks.com/support/sysreq/current_release.
Fast user switching not
supported
The dSPACE software does not support the fast user switching feature
of Windows.
Closing dSPACE software
before PC shutdown
The shutdown procedure of Windows operating systems might cause
some required processes to be aborted although they are still being
used by dSPACE software. To avoid data loss, it is recommended to
terminate the dSPACE software manually before a PC shutdown is
performed.
User Account Control It is recommended to disable Windows User Account Control (UAC)
during the installation of dSPACE software. If you cannot disable it,
you should note the following Windows behavior: If UAC is enabled,
the setup programs run with the administrator account instead of the
user account. Therefore it is important that the administrator account
has access to the required drives, particularly to the required network
drives.
USB devices under
Windows 7
The first time dSPACE USB devices using cables with opto-isolation are
connected to the PC, there might be a message that the device driver
software was not successfully installed. The dSPACE device will
nevertheless work properly later on.
Using boards with ISA
interface installed in the
host PC
When installed directly in the host PC, ISA boards such as the DS1103
or DS813 cannot be used with Windows Vista/Windows 7 with the
standard installation routines. If necessary, contact dSPACE Support.

Limitations for 64-Bit Windows Operating Systems in
Combination with dSPACE 32-Bit Software
Objective Some additional limitations apply when you use Windows
Vista/Windows 7 (64-bit versions) in combination with dSPACE 32-bit
software.
Limitations of device
drivers
Third-party bus interfaces (CAN, LIN, or FlexRay) are supported only if
they have 64-bit drivers from the manufacturers.
Limitations of target
compilers
For information on support for a specific target compiler, contact the
respective compiler manufacturer.
MATLAB If you install a 32-bit version of MATLAB under Windows
Vista/Windows 7 (64-bit versions), the MATLAB installation program
generates a message that a 64-bit version of MATLAB is available.
Click OK and continue installing the 32-bit version of MATLAB.
Limitations for TargetLink 64-Bit Version
Objective Some additional limitations apply when you use the 64-bit version of
TargetLink.
Parallel installation of a 32-
bit and a 64-bit version of
MATLAB
On a 64-bit operating system, you can install both a 32-bit and a 64-
bit version of a particular MATLAB release, for example, R2009a.
However, MATLAB release versions share the same preference settings
folder, which means that you have to set all architecture-dependent
settings such as the MEX compiler settings each time you switch
between different versions of one MATLAB release.
Importing an A2L file It is not possible to import an A2L file into a 64-bit version of
TargetLink. However, you can use a workaround desribed in Basics of
Importing ASAM MCD-2 MC Files ( dSPACE Data Dictionary Basic
Concepts Guide).

Expansion Box Hardware
DS1104 It is not possible to install the DS1104 in an expansion box since this
board has a PCI connector.
DS1006 The DS1006-based modular system must be installed in a PX10 or
PX20 Expansion Box.
n The PX10 Expansion Box supports one DS1006.
n The PX20 Expansion Box supports up to two DS1006.
Required slots The dSPACE boards have different slot requirements for the installation
in an expansion box.
DS1103 You need one free full-size ISA slot and three adjacent
brackets. One free full-size ISA slot is required either by the DS814 (bus
connection) or the slot CPU (Ethernet connection).
Modular system based on DS1005 or DS1006 If you want to
install a modular system, you need as many free slots in the box as the
number of boards you want to install. Note that the DS2210 requires
two adjacent brackets altogether. The DS5203 requires two adjacent
brackets, if the DS5203M1 I/O modules are installed. The DS2202,
n The PX10/PX20 Expansion Boxes need power supplies
and connectors which fulfill the DS1006 requirements
to support a DS1006-based modular system. For
information on whether your existing expansion box
fulfills the requirements, refer to
http://www.dspace.com/goto?pxboxvers.
n The system must not exceed the max. amperage of 75
A (PX20) or 40 A (PX10) at 5 V. Note that the DS1006
needs 22 A at 5 V.
n You cannot insert a DS1006 in a PX4 Expansion Box or
in an AutoBox/TandemAutoBox.

DS2211, DS4003 and the DS4004 each require a total of three
adjacent brackets. One free full-size ISA slot is required either by the
DS814 (bus connection) or the slot CPU (Ethernet connection). Note
that the slot CPU (supplied as of March 2008) requires two slots if you
use it in an AutoBox with a DS1005 with Gigalink modules.
The DS1006 has special slot requirements to ensure proper cooling of
the AMD Opteron
TM
processor:
n In a PX20 Expansion Box, the slot requirement depends on the
board revision:
o Up to board revision DS1006-03 each DS1006 requires four
slots. One of them can be used for the DS814 Link Board or the
slot CPU.
o As of board revision DS1006-06 each DS1006 requires three
slots. However, none of them can be used for the DS814 Link
Board or the slot CPU.
n In a PX10 Expansion Box, the DS1006 can be installed next to the
boxs power supply (recommended). It then requires:
o Two slots, if a DS911 Gigalink module is mounted
o One slot without the DS911 Gigalink module
Connecting an expansion
box and host PC via bus
connection
n The DS814 Link Board has to be installed in the expansion box.
n The DS815, DS817, DS819, or DS821 Link Board has to be installed
in the host PC.
The DS819 and DS821 Link Boards are supported by the dSPACE
software since dSPACE Release 5.2.
n You cannot connect the currently available dSPACE boards to the
host PC via DS811 and DS812 Link Board.
Connecting an expansion
box and host PC via
Ethernet
n To install your dSPACE system in an expansion box connected to the
host PC via Ethernet, a slot CPU with an integrated network
adapter has to be installed in the expansion box.
n The host PC must have a 10baseT (twisted pair, 10 Mbit/s or faster)
network adapter.
n Only if you use Autoboot Option: To install the PC Card reader, one
free bracket is required in the expansion box.
