Thank you for purchasing Qwizdom Remotes. We have prepared this quick start guide to help you get up and running with your remotes as soon as possible. Over the next few pages, Qwizdom will take you through a step-by-step process, from installing the software to running a presentation.

The installer will check if your computer meets the minimum requirements, and automatically installs necessary prerequisites if required. Follow the steps to install the software: Installing the USB Host 1. The USB Host is located in the back compartment of the Q7RF Tablet or in the front pocket of the remote bag. Plug the USB Host into an available USB port on the computer. 2. The computer will automatically detect and configure the new hardware device. This may take a few minutes to complete. 3. The host will flash green when ready for communication and flash red when communicating with remotes. 3 OPENING ACTIONPOINT To open the Actionpoint Add-in for Microsoft PowerPoint®, double-click the shortcut icon on your desktop. (Alternately, load PowerPoint® in the normal way, or by opening an existing presentation.) When opened, you will be presented with a normal PowerPoint window. In Office 2003, the Actionpoint controls will appear as an additional toolbar underneath the formatting area. In Office 2007 or later, the Actionpoint toolbar will be located in the “Qwizdom Actionpoint” tab as shown.
