Port Selection

Magio 3.0 requires a free serial port on your PC/laptop. Laptop computers today usually have Com 1 available because they are equipped with a touch-pad or a PS/2 mouse. Desktop systems also have Com 1 available if a PS/2 mouse is being used. Com 2 is usually reserved for the modem. Unfortunately computers differ greatly in their configuration and neither port may be available. In this case it may be necessary to temporarily unplug the mouse from your computer and start up Win 95/98 without a mouse. Magio 3.0, like the Windows operating system itself can be operated by Alt-F, Tab, arrow and Enter keys alone. It may take a little practise, but it is quite possible as a last resort.
