After installation wizard has completed and all necessary files are copied to the system, the

window). M3 configuration wizard will guide you through a series of options screens 
required to perform initial setup of important M3 parameters:

provide good quality and proper operation. To define the country please

Messenger Modem. Caller ID Type I and password authentication is supported in the current version. 
If you specified the password as the authentication method then you will be prompted to enter the 
password (using phone pad) when you are calling into the modem to enter the M3 system, 
as well as in case if the Caller ID could not be detected (for example due to bad line condition).

This page allows you to specify the general behavior of the M3 application, related to system 
and application startup and event logging.

The Skype messenger should be running at the moment when M3 is started. However, it is possible to 
automatically launch Skype from M3 if you check "Launch Skype".

When M3 application is started for the first time. A dialog will pop up,that says:

   "Another Program is trying to Use Skype
   What would you like to do ?
   Name: M3.exe "
   
Click on the first bullet:

mode to enable all M3 functionality. You will see the message box prompting you to do so. The 
switching between "M3 Audio" and "Modem" shall be done using M3 system tray menu (right mouse
