Dell Digital Delivery is a service which enables you to purchase software at the time you order your computer and then download and install it automatically once you receive the computer and connect to the internet. Here's how it works:
Optional software is ordered with your computer. You will not receive media (CD's or DVD's, paper license keys, or printed documentation) for these applications.
To uninstall a program downloaded by Dell Digital Delivery, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Find the program you wish to remove on the list and select it. Follow the computer's instructions to remove the program.
To Reinstall a program purchased through Dell Digital Delivery, run Dell Digital Delivery by clicking on its icon in the Start Menu (Windows 7) or in All Programs (Windows 8). Dell Digital Delivery will allow you to reinstall any purchased programs not currently installed on the computer by clicking the Info Icon at the right of the listing for the application and choosing Install this application again.<
In the Dell Digital Delivery application window, an Info Icon is displayed at the right of the listing for each installed program. Click the Info Icon and choose View application key to display the program license key. If View application key is not displayed for the specific application, the application does not require a license key.
Dell Digital Delivery should already be installed on your Dell computer. You can run Dell Digital Delivery by clicking on its icon in the Start Menu (Windows 7) or in All Programs (Windows 8). If the Dell Digital Delivery application is not installed on your computer, and you need it to reinstall software you have purchased, it can be downloaded and installed from the Dell Support Website. Click Drivers and Downloads then enter your computer's service tag to find the Dell Digital Delivery application. Your service tag is printed on a sticker attached to the outside of your computer, typically on the bottom or rear side.
Most problems with Dell Digital Delivery can be solved by resetting the program. This can be done by clicking Options (the 'gear' icon) and Reset Settings.
I receive the message, "There was a problem. Please reinstall."
You may attempt to reinstall the software from within Dell Digital Delivery by clicking the Info Icon at the right of the listing for the application and choosing Install this application again. If this is unsuccessful, you may attempt to manually install the software by opening a Windows Explorer window by clicking on the folder at the bottom of your desktop and navigate to C:\ProgramData\Dell\DigitalDelivery\Downloads\Software.
I receive the message, "Dell Digital Delivery has not been able to connect to the internet. Please make sure you are connected and try again."
Close the Dell Digital Delivery application, launch Internet Explorer and attempt to navigate to any website. If you are successful, start the Dell Digital Delivery application again. If you were unable to navigate to a website, click Start, Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center, and select "Set up a new connection or network." Follow the instructions and once you are connected to the internet, start the Dell Digital Delivery application again.
If you need more assistance in resetting your internet connection, go to the Dell Wireless Center for information on both wired and wireless home networking.
