Descent 3 - Descent 3 dedicated server tool for Windows

The latest version of D3Server3 can be downloaded from here. To find out what's new read the release notes.


D3Server3 either comes with an installation program or as a compressed archive (zip file). However, although the zip file does still contain the latest version of D3Server3, it is not supported anymore (see below why).



Download D3Server3's installation program and execute it, then follow the installation instructions.

Download D3Server3_3.2.3.0_Inst.exe (1.48 MiB = 1,518.9 KiB = 1,555,358 bytes)


If you rather download and extract a compressed archive, you can download the zip  package and extract the files it contains into a directory on your hard drive. Do this at your own risk! The installation program of D3Server3 can create an exception list for the Windows firewall and sets some access permissions on the folder structure and files the software uses. It also applies some settings to the tool's configuration files and performs lots of checks. Without being installed properly (by executing its installation program) D3Server3 can't fully run. The zip archive here can sometimes be used to upgrade to a newer version, provided that a particular minimum version has been installed already.

Download (0.93 MiB = 949.9 KiB = 972,687 bytes)


Make sure you are administrator on your computer and that UAC (User Account Control) is turned off. Otherwise, the automatic update function may not work. The same applies to D3Server3's automatic restart feature. It won't work if UAC is on.


The process of how the update functions in D3Server3 work is explained in more detail in the article Automatic updates. You can also run the server tool as a Windows service. Running D3Server3 as a Windows service explains how to set this up.


If you're interested in D3Server3's latest source code, this can be downloaded from here:

Note that the full version of Descent 3 from Dateiliste already contains D3Server3. If you have this, there's no need to download it separately.

I had to change the text for the zip archive as more recent versions of D3Server3 don't run anymore without being installed.

I'm actually still not happy with the article in its current state. The zip file is only meant for some very special cases like trying out a less recent version after the installation of a newer one etc.

The French and the German versions of the article still need to be updated.

Tomas, I have long wanted to tell you... Thank you for D3server3 and instructions. Everything was clear. It really helped me. (I beg your pardon my English)
