Installing

Do not connect the Chime Master unit to your PC with the USB cable until the software has been installed. This will allow device drivers to be properly registered for your system.

If you currently use Millennium Suite version 4.8 or older, uninstall it using the Windows Add/Remove utility. Your schedule and playlist files will not be deleted.

Install the Management Suite before connecting your PC to the carillon. If you are upgrading, disconnect or power off the carillon before installation.

To install, open the zip file and run the Setup application by double clicking it.

After the installation is complete, connect the Chime Master to the PC's USB port and power it on. The first time this connection is made, it may take a couple of minutes for Windows to register the device drivers. Windows 8 and Windows 10 provide an Device Setup icon in the system tray that shows the progress of the device preparation.

When Windows notifies you that the device is ready to use, launch the Management Suite.

Premium Management Suite License

Entering in the license code to the free downloaded Management Suite opens the features of the Premium version. If you have purchased and received a license code:

  • right click the mouse while hovering over the main menu window
  • Select Licensing.
  • Enter your license code into the licensing window.
  • Restart Management Suite.

You can license the software on as many computers as you like, but each license code only works for one carillon system. If you manage several carillons, you can purchase a separate license for each one, and add them all to a single portable PC installation.

If you are upgrading from a previous version, the license should automatically transfer. If you have received a replacement or upgraded carillon, you will receive a new license number for the new system.
