Since there is a driver update involved you cannot upgrade your existing installation! You need to uninstall existing v4.0 DVBLink products and install DVBLink product v4.0.1 from the scratch.
Please use Backup-Restore functionality to restore your DVBLink settings after reinstallation! Do not forget about your modified transponders and a content of your Plugins folder!
Sorry for the inconvenience.
The installation instructions are described on our Wiki

Important! DVBLink Connect! Server v4.0.1 does not use anymore base port – 39876 – for control communication. Instead base streaming port is used – 8080. Please change port value in your mobile apps for Android, iOS, WinPhone, Boxee for them to work correctly with a new version! Port 39876 does not have to be opened anymore on firewall/router for external streaming.
If you use direct http streaming (for MediaPortal integration for example) – change port value in urls to (base streaming port + 1) – e.g. 8081 if you use default port value.

The location of xmltv files is now fixed to ProgramData\DVBLogic\DVBLink\xmltv. This folder is writable without any special access permissions.
