Setting up your NISIS G2/G4 EASYPEN Graphic Tablet
Welcome
Thank you and congratulations on your purchase of the NISIS G2/G4 Graphic Tablet.
Introduction
The NISIS G2/G4 Graphic Tablet provides an intuitive, cordless, Radio Frequency pen-type pointing device for
use with drawing, painting, graphics, CAD and photographic applications. NISIS Graphic Tablets also offer nonmechanical and cordless, Radio Frequency mice. Having no moving parts, these mice do not suffer from the
frustrating problem that mechanical mice experience when the internal rollers become dirty, leading to the cursor
not moving when the mouse is moved.
The active area on the NISIS Graphics Tablets are covered with a transparent lift -up film so you can slide in
photographs or drawings and trace images with the pen. The pen can detect up to 512 levels of pressure which
can be used for many different effects, such as to vary the width of the line you draw, or the density of paint
coverage when using an air brush type tool.
Bundled with Handwriting recognition software, Annotation software for Microsoft Word, Signature verification
and encryption software and Art Dabbler, a powerful graphics package, NISIS Graphics Tablets offer the most
cost effective solution you will find in the market today.

Checking for the latest Manuals and Software Drivers
NISIS continuously strives to improve its products and services, so manuals and software drivers are updated
frequently. Before you start the installation of this product, we strongly recommend you visit the NISIS web site
at nisis.com to see whether there is a later manual and later drivers for this product.
You will find the latest drivers and manuals under the Drivers & Manuals section on the web site. All new
manuals have a Revision No. so you can compare the Rev. No. of your manual with the latest Revision on the
web site.
Similarly, Drivers have Version Numbers so you can check to see whether you already have the latest Drivers
Version. At the moment, you can only check which version of drivers you have, after you have completed the
installation.
In Control Panel, double click on the “Tablets” icon and select the “About” tab. The Drivers version will be
displayed.
If the Drivers version number on your installation is earlier than the version on the NISIS web site, then you can
download the latest drivers and upgrade your installation.
Installation Instructions
IMPORTANT NOTES:
•
Please check that your PC meets the minimum system requirements before attempting to install your
NISIS Product.
•
Please take the time to follow these instructions very carefully. An extra few minutes that it takes to
ensure you follow these instructions precisely and completely, will help ensure the installation of
your NISIS product is successful. If you miss or ignore any of these instructions you may end up with
a partial or failed installation, and it can be very difficult to correct a partial or failed installation.
Background Tasks
Before installing any Programs, Drivers or Hardware, you should ensure that all other programs and background
tasks are closed. This applies to whatever Programs, Drivers or Hardware you are installing and is not specific to
NISIS products. To check what background tasks are running, hold the “Ctrl” and “Alt” keys down on your
keyboard while you press the “Delete” key once only.
Windows 98, 98SE or ME
If you are running Windows 98, or ME, you should see a list of programs that are running in the background.
NISIS G2/G4 Graphic Tablet Installation Guide Rev 1.6
Windows 2000 or XP
If you are running Windows 2000, you should see a Windows Security window. Click on the Task Manager
button to see a list of programs that are running in the background.
Some of these programs or background tasks are necessary for Windows to function correctly, but most others
are background tasks such as mouse drivers, virus checkers and other communication programs, should be shut
down, temporarily, while you install new application programs, drivers or hardware.
If you see "Explorer" listed, leave it displayed. If you see "Systray" listed, leave it displayed. All other tasks can
be ended.
You close down a Task by highlighting it, then clicking on the "End Task" button. Some tasks will end
immediately, while others may take some time before you see the screen confirming the task has ended.
Once all the tasks that you have chosen to close down, have ended, you can start the installation of your NISIS
product drivers.
When you restart your PC, all tasks that you ended, will start again as usual.
Don't forget that each time you restart your PC, background tasks are enabled again. So if you are installing
several programs, which require you to reboot your PC after each installation, you will need to temporarily end
each background task after every restart until you have completed all the installations.
