[Dashboard]: Skipping the introduction of the Dashboard during the first installation


When you install the first time the Dashboard on a PC (3dRudder for PC), the Dashboard display several dialog screens to:
- Explain how to use the 3dRudder.
- Update the Dashboard.
- Update the Firmware of the 3dRudder.

This is the normal mode to install the Dashboard.

In the case you have a PC with no access to the web, or you're not authorized to access the internet, you do need to the follow this procedure.
Otherwise, you will be stuck during the update process
