Applicable to:

  • ActivDriver


To access ActivManager, click on the ActivManager icon in the system tray or toolbar and select Control Panel.

The Hardware tab contains information about Promethean hardware connected to the computer and shows the ActivDriver version. From here it is possible to upgrade your product’s firmware if required.

The Connections tab should be used if you want to connect your ActivBoard wirelessly, or via a serial cable.

The Pens tab is used to control how the pens and touch work on your ActivBoard. It can be used if you have a tablet PC (Windows) but should be set to Mouse if you are experiencing any issues with interactivity.

The Options tab allows you to enter proxy information if required, and shows where firmware updates are downloaded from (do not modify this information).

The Projector tab allows you to set an automatic reminder to clean your filters, either weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

The Utilities tab is available in ActivDriver v5.14.14 and above. For more information, please refer to article 1547.
