When launching calibration by hovering the ActivPen over the ActivBoard’s LED, the calibration screen is not visible on Windows 8.

NB: This feature is disabled for ActivBoard 100, 300 Standard, 300 Pro and 500 Pro if the ActivBoard has been upgraded to the latest ActivBoard HID firmware.

On Windows 8, calibration will always be launched on the desktop. You must switch to desktop mode in order to calibrate your ActivBoard. To do this, press the Windows key if there is one on your device’s keyboard. Otherwise, tap the Desktop tile to continue with calibration.

You can now calibrate your ActivBoard as normal, either by hovering your ActivPen over the LED or by clicking the ActivManager icon in the system tray and selecting Calibration. Once your ActivBoard has been calibrated, it will need to be reset. You will see a message on-screen before the ActivBoard resets. The LED may flash during this time; do not touch the ActivBoard whilst the LED is flashing. Once you see the solid white LED, your ActivBoard is ready to use.
