BEFORE YOU GET STARTED

The manual is written for Windows 8; for Windows 7, a separate manual is available.

When working through the manual, you will frequently have to perform operations. A specific style of writing is used for these instructions: references to text and buttons on screens are printed in italics, data that you have to enter yourself is printed in bold.

Make sure that you have local administrator rights. If you do not have these, contact your system administrator.

Make sure that your wireless network card is switched on.

Manuals for Windows 8 assume you’re working in the desktop environment.
