The guide below is a step-by-step explanation of how to install OM3 on a new computer, update the firmware on the Opticon and install/activate the NIDAQ card.

HOWEVER if you do not have the calibration files from the old computer, you SHOULD NOT use OM3 or upgrade the firmware. This is because recalibrating an Opticon 1 ABSOLUTELY requires version 1 of the software. (I double-checked this after we got off the phone-- you DO need version1 of Opticon Monitor!!!)

So, this guide will be helpful in that it explains how to set Com setting (step1), install the NiDAQ card and drivers, activate the card (step 2), and calibrate the Op1 (appendix A).
