  •   When connecting your ActivBoard via USB, after a new ActivDriver installation, you need to
      manually setup your USB ActivDriver (using the steps on this guide)
  •   IF the USB ActivDriver is not properly setup, THEN:
         o ActivBoard will not respond
         o ActivControl icon (next to the time, on system tray) will display a Red ‘X’

  •   Every USB Port used to connect an ActivBoard will need to be setup separately (using the steps
      on this guide)
         o Example: Laptop = 2 USB ports
                    •    You connect ActivBoard to ‘USB port 1’ and set driver
                    •    You unplug board and take away laptop....
                    •    Next time you connect board, you use ‘port 2’ instead of ‘port 1’
                           o ‘Port 2’ is not set = board not detected
                           o Setup needs to be performed while connected to port 2
                           o Or, unplug board and connect to already set ‘port 1’
