Installation instructions

First, you must remove the version of the modem software currently on your machine. To do this, follow these instructions:

1. Start Windows 95 or Windows 98.
2. Extract the Modem drivers to your hard drive.
3. Click Start -> Run...
4. Type C:\DRIVERS\W9X\MODEM\SETUP in the Open field and click on " OK ". This will execute the Modem Setup program.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to remove the current modem software from your machine .
6. Restart the machine when the removal process is completed.

After the machine reboots, follow these instructions to install the new level of software.

1. When the machine restarts, the 'Update Device Driver Wizard' dialog box appears. You should see a box like this one:
unknown device wizard screen shot

2. Click on [ Next ]. Windows will search your system for the correct install files. Because Windows will not automatically search in the C:\DRIVERS\W9X\MODEM directory, Windows will not find the drivers for your modem. When you are prompted by the Update Device Driver Wizard for "Other Locations" to install drivers from, click on the " Other Locations " box, and type in " C:\DRIVERS\W9X\MODEM ", and click on the ' OK ' button. Windows will display the following message box:

3. Click on [ Finish ]. Windows 98 users can skip to step 6. Windows 95 users will then see the following dialog box (and should continue through steps 4 and 5):
insert disk screen shot

4. Click on [ OK ]. The 'IBM Setup Disk ' is found in the C:\DRIVERS\W9X\MODEM directory. Windows 95 is looking for more installation files, and will display the following prompt:
inert setup disk screen shot

5. Type in " C:\DRIVERS\W9X\MODEM " in the 'Copy files from' prompt to point Windows 95 to the modem driver files to continue. Click [ OK ] when you are finished.

6. For both Windows 95 and Windows 98 users, the modem install will now begin.

7. The ThinkPad Modem for Windows install will prompt you for the destination of the files. We suggest you use the default directory (C:\MWW). Follow the prompts on the screen. When the install is done copying the files, your modem features will be installed.

If you plan on connecting to V.90 servers, you should download the V.90 Upgrade Package. The package includes V.90 support for all supported countries.
