Open a Windows Command terminal (CMD) as administrator and switch to the directory where DSM is installed (under Program Files):
cd C:\Proqram Files\DesiqnSpark\DesiqnSpark Mechanical 2.0
Press enter to run the command and then enter the below line.
In the window that opens, DO NOT LOGIN with your existing DesignSpark web account.
Instead, use the 'Create DesignSpark account' option to register a separate DesignSpark profile in the software and make sure to fill in the RS/Allied sold-to id field with 8-12 digits. For non-customers, random entries like 12345678 or 24242424 will be accepted.
You should now be able to use DSM v2 (32-bit).
Note that this is a workaround and our plan is to only support 64-bit version of DSM in the long term.
If you have 64-bit Windows 7 or later, help us by updating to the latest 64-bit edition of DSM available here: rs-online.com/designspark/mechanical-software
