Download Drivers and Install

Post by Bryan » Sat Sep 03, 2011 5:18 pm

Dear teemark,

Do a search on our Driver Download Page under the Service Menu on www.3dconnexion.com.

It will populate a table with download links.

Download to your computer, close all your applications and install.
Select a complete install.
Select to have the drivers start automatically.
Reboot.
Test in one of our Demos.

Sincerely,
Bryan

Good starting place. Before we dig deeper, can this run on a non-microsoft platform? We are doing an implementation with a 32 bit Microchip processor. We already support the SpaceMouse Pro and SpaceNavigator on this platform.
