Download/Update Config Method:
Use to keep/update an existing configuration.
Download the “blank config” zip file, place d7x v0.0.0.0.exe inside an existing directory with a registered/working copy of d7II.exe or a previous d7x vX.X.X.X.exe file. Be sure to DELETE any existing copies of d7II.exe or any d7x vX.X.X.X.exe files in that directory.
If you have other copies of d7II or d7x on the same PC, ensure that you have used the END SESSION to close one of them before the upgrade, or simply delete these .exe files as well. (An open session on the same PC from any other copy of d7II.exe or d7x.exe will cause the new copy of d7x to run the copies used from the session data, therefore negating the update.) You can keep a backup of the d7II or d7x directory that you wish to upgrade, even with the d7II or d7x .exe files in them, but be sure it is in a different location than when you last used d7II or d7x (rename the folder.)
When you start the d7x exe, it will use the existing resources from that directory, including the registration information.
Download Only Method:
Use to start with a new/blank config or starter config.
Download the blank config zip file, extract d7x v0.0.0.0.exe to an empty folder, launch and register it. It is strongly recommended to register d7x (or any fresh download of a d7x or d7II product) by using the Browse button to find/import your existing d7II\Config\Reg.Settings.dat file, which ensures the exact same “Technician Password” is used; see the note on the Technician Password below for more information.

#2 For remote usage, please see d7xRDT, the “d7II SFX Mini” replacement (Video)
#3 If for some reason you are updating from d7II v2.x (which was not forced to update to d7II 3.x) then you may want to see this article: Recreate the d7II v2.x Look and Feel
