PixyMon Install

You will need a USB mini cable for your computer to talk to Pixy. This cable isn't included with Pixy.

**

Don't plug in your Pixy into your computer yet though. Install PixyMon and the device drivers first.

Windows Vista, 7, 8

When installing PixyMon on a Windows Vista, 7, or 8 machine, installation will proceed as expected, until you get to the driver
pre-installation. The message "Pre-installing device drivers. Please be patient!" will be displayed and after a few moments, you'll see a dialog that looks like this:

**

Go ahead an click on "Install". Windows will crunch some more and eventually display the same dialog again. (Pixy has two device drivers that need to be installed.)
Click on "Install" again when you see the new dialog.
Windows will crunch again (Windows is performing a system restore point, again.) The driver installation can take a couple minutes, so be patient.

And then you're done.

Now plug in your Pixy into your computer with a USB mini cable.

And run PixyMon by selecting it from the Start menu (or the Start screen if you're running Windows 8.) When PixyMon first comes up, you may see the
message "error: No pixy devices have been detected" until the driver is finished installing.

When the driver is finish installing, (you will probably see a system tray message like this one:)

**

PixyMon will start displaying CCB1 data from Pixy.

Windows XP

When installing PixyMon on a Windows XP machine, installation proceeds as expected and finishes.

Now plug in your Pixy into your computer with a USB mini cable. A New Hardware Wizard dialog should pop up.

**

Click on "No, not this time" and "Next". In the next dialog, click on "Install the sofware automatically" and "Next".

**

The driver will then be installed. When it finishes, run PixyMon by selecting it from the Start menu. When PixyMon first comes up, you should see it
start displaying CCB1 data from Pixy.
