Installation
Scope of delivery A CD-ROM with the following programs is supplied with Commubox FXA195:
USB drivers - these are automatically installed by means of hardware detection. For an example for
installation on Windows 2000, see "Installing the USB driver" onPage 4-8.
PreInstaller - you can use this program to install the USB drivers manually. To do so, you must first start
the program from the CD-ROM, follow the installation instructions and then connect the Commubox to
the personal computer.
ComPortFinder - this program helps you find out which virtual COM port the USB port was set to. To do
so, simply start the program from the CD-ROM.

Installing the USB driver Note!


Please note that you require Administrator rights if installing on Windows 2000 and Windows XP!
The following are sample instructions for Windows 2000
1. Insert the "Commubox driver CD-ROM" into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.
2. Connect Commubox FXA195 to a free USB port of the computer.
The following screen tells you that new hardware has been found.
