Install PCI Voice Card

Dialogic PCI voice cards have a small rotary switch (on the circuit card), which sets the board number. If this is the first Dialogic voice card in the PC, set the board number to 1. Plug the Dialogic voice card into any available PCI slot on the PC mother board.

PCI Driver Configuration

Step 1
After fitting the Dialogic PCI voice card, re-start the PC.
The "Found New Hardware Wizard" will be displayed.
Choose not connect to Windows Update.
Press Next.
Step 2
Select the "Install from specific location" option.
Step 3
Select the "Include this location" option.
Browse to the Dialogic install folder shown here.
Press Next.
Step 4
The correct Dialogic card should be displayed.
Press Finish.

Step 5
Start the Dialogic Configuration Manager:
From the Start menu, select Programs, then Intel Dialogic System Software, then Dialogic Configuration Manager.

Step 6
Connect to the local computer.
Step 7
Auto card detection will begin.
Step 8
Check if the voice card has been auto-detected.
The model and card number should be clearly displayed,
as show here. (model = D/4PCI-U)

Fail to detect
If the card is not detected, or the model is displayed
as ????, do the following:

  • Reboot the PC
  • Enter the system BIOS
  • Disable "Plug & Play" in the BIOS
  • Repeat steps 5 to 8 above
Step 9
Double click on the voice card icon.
Set the country parameter to the correct value.
Step 10
Select Start-System from the System menu
(or press the green Start System button).

The service can take up to 60 seconds to start.

Step 11
From the Settings menu:
Select System/Device-autostart, then Start-System.

This ensures the Dialogic service
auto-starts whenever the PC is rebooted.


Fail to start service
If the service fails to start on Windows 2003 Server, download this file winstrm.dll and copy to your C:\Windows\System32 directory. Then re-attempt to start the Dialogic service.
