The final step in the upgrade process involves installing the DPC software on your Windows host computer. This short step can be completed in less than 15mins. This page describes the installation procedure for the DPC software.

The installation procedure consists of first uninstalling the existing version of the DPC software and then installing the new version of DPC software. Perform the following steps for the installation of the DPC software: 

  • Download the installation kit (approximately 3.5MB for the 32-bit version or the 64-bit version) from StorSimple’s Support site. This requires creation of a customer account with StorSimple support. When you have the binaries for StorSimple Data Protection downloaded, double-click the setup.exe file as shown below to begin installation.


  • As your system has a prior DPC version installed, when you click the setup.exe file, you will see the following message -




  • From the Start menu, access Control Panel Programs Programs and Features. Choose the StorSimple Data Protection program from this list to uninstall it.




  • If there are any processes running in the background, you may see the following message -




  • Choose 'Automatically close applications and attempt to restart those after the setup is complete.' Select OK. Wait until the Windows configures StorSimple Data Protection.




  • You will now see the following screen.




  • Click ‘Next’. On the next screen, read the license agreement, terms and conditions, and accept these by clicking the radio button next to ‘I Agree’. To proceed, click ‘Next’.




  • On the next screen, specify where you would like to have the software installed. Otherwise, leave the default settings intact. Click ‘Next’ to continue.




  • Click on ‘Next’ again to confirm the installation of StorSimple Data Protection on your computer. The installation will take a few minutes and a status bar will reflect the progress of the process. Installation of StorSimple Data Protection application is now complete. Close the window.
