Running the Response Wizard

Every time you plug a receiver into a computer you MUST run theTurningPoint “Response Wizard”. This is the case even if the receiver was previously plugged into the same machine.

Here are the steps involved:

  1. Plug the receiver into a USB port on the computer.
  2. The system should chime when it “sees” the hardware.
    1. If the receiver was previously plugged into that machine, then the system may not run the whole “Found New Hardware” routine. However, if the receiver and computer have not interacted before, this procedure will run.
    2. If the “Found New Hardware” procedure runs, specify as the source directory for the drivers as C:\Program Files\Turning Technologies\Turningpoint 2006 (the dialog box may already show it filled in).
  3. Launch Turningpoint 2006.
  4. In Turningpoint 2006 click on the lightening bolt icon in the Turningpoint toolbar to start the Response Wizard.

  1. The initial Response Wizard screen looks like this:

  2. Click the “Restart Wizard” button at the bottom left of the screen.
  3. In the next window, check the RF ResponseCard icon as shown here (uncheck all others), then click Next (bottom right of screen):

  4. Next, the software will search for the plugged-in receiver. When it finds it, the following screen will flash briefly. Watch the screen so you can confirm this window appears:

  5. After this screen flashes, it will look like this. If the hardware is not found, click the “Search Again” button until it finds the hardware, or if it is not found, unplug and then reseat the receiver. Click “Search Again” and the hardware should be found.

  6. After the hardware has been found, click the Next button to set the parameters on the receiver. Fill in the form shown with the numbers shown here, then click “Next”:

  7. The polling test window appears. Click the “Start Test” button at the top right of the screen.

  8. Click a button on a transmitter (aka “clicker”). A response should be shown in the polling window, like this:

  9. Click the “End Test” button (upper right of the screen), then “Finish.”
