3M Dynapro(TM) ET 350 Monitor Touch Screen Drivers and Utilities
For Windows(TM) XP Professional(TM) and Windows 2000 Professional(TM) Operating Systems

This document supplements the information in the 3M Dynapro ET 350 Monitor User's Installation Guide and in the MicroTouch Near Field Imaging Software Guide for Windows XP and Windows 2000. It covers the following topics:

1. Driver installation diskette
2. Installing/upgrading the touch screen driver software
3. Concurrent mouse and touch screen operation
4. Resolving possible hardware incompatibility with Windows XP Professional operating system
5. Uninstalling the touch screen driver software

This diskette is one of two that comprise the MicroTouch(TM) Near Field Imaging(TM) touch screen software for the 3M Dynapro ET 350 Monitor running on Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional on the host computer.

The touch screen software includes the following files:

* setup.exe

Before installing the MicroTouch NFI touch screen software for the ET 350 monitor, uninstall any previously installed touch screen drivers.


To install touch screen software for your 3M Dynapro monitor onto your host computer    (typically, on the hard disk drive C:\), you must have either Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional operating system running on the host computer. 

To install the driver for Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional operating systems from the floppy diskettes supplied with your monitor, follow these steps:

1. Close all open Windows programs.

2. Find the floppy disk with drivers for Windows XP Professional and Windows 2000 Professional operating systems. The floppy disk includes setup.exe. Insert it in the disk drive.

3. Copy all files from the floppy disk to the hard drive of your computer.

4. Run setup.exe from the hard drive. The installation Welcome window appears.

5. Follow the screen prompts to install the driver and then follow the on-screen instructions of the NFI Setup Wizard. **NOTE** When the Linearization Data Download dialog box appears, select Skip. Linearization data is built into the monitor at the factory.

6. When the NFI Setup Wizard finishes, the Install Successful window appears. It is not necessary to restart the computer. If the touch screen does not function, consult the Troubleshooting section of the monitor's installation guide. 


Concurrent mouse and touch screen operation is supported by this driver. When the touch screen software has been successfully installed, both touch and mouse functions are available. 


Some computer hardware has a compatibility issue with the Windows XP Professional operating system that causes a phantom error message to appear after rebooting the operating system. It is a "phantom" message because it is not identifying an actual error and it may be possible to continue to use the touch screen with the error on the screen. 

There is no guaranteed method for stopping the appearance of the phantom error message, but adjusting FIFO (first in, first out) settings seems sometimes to resolve the issue. To find FIFO settings, follow the steps below. NOTE: In the first step, there is a slightly different route, depending on whether you are running the Windows XP operating system in "Windows Classic" view or in "Categories" view. After that, the route to FIFO settings is the same for both views.

1. From the Windows XP Professional operating system desktop in "Windows Classic View":
Select the Start button, select Control Panel, and then select System. The System properties dialog box appears.

From the Windows XP Professional operating system desktop in "Categories View":
Select the start button, then select Control Panel, then select Printers and Other Hardware, and then select System (from the See Also frame).

2. Select the Hardware tab, and then select the Device Manager button. The Device Manager dialog box appears.

3. From the Ports folder, select the port to which your touch screen is connected. The Communications Properties dialog box appears.

4. Select Port Settings tab, and then select Advanced. The Advanced Settings dialog box appears. In the dialog box are slide bars for adjusting the FIFO Receive Buffer and Transmit Buffer.

5. Try lowering one or both of the settings for Receive Buffer and Transmit Buffer.

6. Select OK.

7. Reboot your computer. If the phantom error appears again, experiment with other settings for Receive Buffer and Transmit Buffer, and reboot the computer.


If it is ever necessary to uninstall the touch screen software for Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional operating systems, use the Windows Add/Remove Programs control panel:

1. From the Windows desktop, select Start, then Settings, then Control Panel, and then Add/Remove Programs. The Add/Remove Programs window appears.

2. Select the Universal Pointer Device Driver and then select the Change/Remove button. The Uninstall UPDD window appears.

3. Select Next. The Complete dialog box appears to confirm that the software is uninstalled.

4. Select Next to end the uninstall procedure.
