Setting Up the New Tablet - Part 1#

As previously blogged I have a new HP TC1100 that I need to set up for use.  At some stage I have to switch to the HP, but I have the luxury of time so I can get the HP set up just so.

Step One – Getting all the essential software installed

First and foremost is installing some the software I need.  This is the core stuff, which has gone on in the last few days:

  1. Office 2003 Professional
  2. Visio 2003 Professional
  3. Project 2003 Professional
  4. OneNote 2003
  5. Maxthon – alternate browser.  The great thing about Maxthon is that it uses the IE rendering engine but replaces the GUI with one that supports tabbed browsing, mouse/pen gestures (two great features for tablet users) and a host of other great features.
  6. TrendMicro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005
  7. EVDO Card Drivers – got to be able to get online, out and about.
  8. BlogLines Notifier – Now that we’re online (see 7) who’s blogging…
  9. Tablet Experience Pack (sans Ink Art – see below)
  10. Art Rage – great New Zealand software.
  11. Windows Media Player 10
  12. Roxio Easy CD Creator (came with the tablet’s modular DVD/RW drive)
  13. MindManager X5 – Great mind mapping software.
  14. Daemon Tools - Excellent free Victual CD Software


Part 2 – Hardware Buttons, QMenu and Quick Launch Shortcut customisations.
