This page is for Peter's Data Entry Suite v4 ("DES") users to learn about the upgrade process to Version 5.
Let's start with some great news. Your upgrade from DES v4 to v5 is free.
You can download it now, run the Web Application Updater to apply its files, and it will
continue to work with your current license files and serial numbers.
Source code is also free, although it still requires a separate licensing process. Email Peter
with your DES Version 5 serial number to get that license.
Version 5.0 has had few feature changes since version 4. Most of the work is due to the introduction of the
Peter’s Business Logic Driven UI module and a major refactoring of the code base. There are several breaking changes to be aware of.
This document describes the changes in detail.
The Peter’s Business Logic Driven UI module (“BLD”) provides a different and very smart way to build applications
that use DES's controls. Use it to separate your business logic from the user interface.
The result is both better application design and rapid development of a rich UI.
Ready to download Version 5?
Retrieve your product serial number for DES 4 and the email address associated with that serial number. Then click here to login.
You should be able to find your serial number in the Application_Start method of Global.asax. (Redistribution license users must
look in individual pages for a line starting with PeterBlum.DES.Globals.Page.Suite_LicenseKey.)
If you need more help getting either serial number or email address, contact Peter
