For Windows, you might need to fiddle with driver installation from Device Manager. If you run into snags, look for help in the comments below, the discussion page here, or at the MaKey MaKey forums. You can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org if using a Joylabz MaKey MaKey.
Post a comment about your experience. Were you able to reprogram the MaKey? Did you run into snags? Do you need help still? Do you have any MaKey reprogramming ideas you would like to share?
NEEDED: If you take screenshots along the process, please post them along with your operating system! All help creating tutorials greatly appreciated!!
