Dell recommends the customer review specifics about the update to determine if it applies to your system. The update contains changes that impact only certain configurations, or provides new features that may/may not apply to your environment.

You can download QuickSet from Support.dell.com. 2. The static lib version of the SDK is compatible only with those applications built with VS2005. If you are using earlier versions of VS 2003, please use the dll version of the SDK.
