First and foremost you MUST update the Firmware on the DM-810 before updating the software application.

To determine if your DM-810 needs a firmware update, compare the file’s version with the version shown on the software application display (top center), and if the downloaded file is newer, then a firmware update is recommended.

To update the firmware:

Connect the DM-810 to your computer via a USB cable and open the application. After it has successfully connected the application will indicate it is online via the words “Online” in green in bottom left corner of window. It will also display firmware build date and version at the top center of the window.
