The installation will be done by PnP.

1. Connect your CardMan 2010 to a free serial port and to the front of the
   keyboard plug and reboot your machine.

2. Windows 9x/2000/XP opens a "New Hardware Found" box and prompts for an INF-file.

   For Windows 2000/XP select the INF-file in the W2K_XP folder

4. Reboot (not necessary for Windows 2000/XP)

For Windows 9x            : cmdiag.cpl and cmdiag.ini in the SYSTEM directory.
For Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP: cmdiag.cpl and cmdiag.ini in the SYSTEM32 directory.

Delay Service for Windows 9x:

II. Uninstalling

Microsoft Windows NT 4.0:

You can uninstall the PC/SC driver for CardMan 2010 by using the
'Add/Remove Programs' utility displayed in the Control Panel.
After uninstalling the IFD handler it is necessary to reboot
the machine.
Then the changes will take effect.

during boot, the service control manager will display the message box
'At least one service failed to start..'.
You can avoid this error message by manually changing the following value
in the Registry:

Old value:

New value:

Microsoft Windows 9x/2000/XP:

Due to the PnP mechanism, it is not necessary to uninstall the driver.
It is only loaded if a CardMan 2010 is connected.

III. General hints:

Standby mode:

The PC/SC handler for W9x will not allow to go into standby mode, because
the Resource Manager is not capable of this feature.
Otherwise, after returning from standby mode, the reader would not be able
to communicate with the Smart Card any more.
As soon as the resource Manager supports standby mode, a new PC/SC handler
will be provided by OMNIKEY.

Update Driver with Device Manager under W9x:

Because the Resource Manager is not capable of detecting PnP devices,
two error messages
(1. Reader removal monitor error ...
 2. Reader monitor ' OMNIKEY CardMan 2010' received uncaught error code ...)
occur if the driver is updated by using the Device Manager.
Just click 'OK', reboot and the CardMan 2010 is ready again.

Version conflict under Windows 9x:

If you have already installed an older driver version than 3.0.1 and you
want to update the driver with the Device Manager, W9x will claim that there
is a version conflict and your currently used driver is of a recent date.
Despite this warning, you must click the 'No' button to install the new driver.

IV. What is new in this release?
