Q : How do I enable Skype support in the US version of SetPoint?
A : Thanks for the fun question. I just found how to do it all.
My uberOptions doesn't fix this on its own. uberOptions does add all the "VoIP:" functions to all buttons (so you can set any button to be any function), but SetPoint still doesn't support Skype until you install the needed files from Logitech.
Easy method: (thanks to arfster on the Logitech Forum)
Create a dword called VOIP in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Logitech\SetPoint
Set it to 1 and re-install SetPoint BR and Skype support will be included.
Set it to 6 and re-install SetPoint BR and Yahoo!/AOL support will be included.
To get both, use the manual method below.
(see lgsetup.ini in the 3-bedrock directory within the exe file for how these options are used)
Looking around and trying a few things, here's how to add Skype support (This works on Windows 2000, Windows XP 32-bit, Windows XP x64, Vista 32-bit, and Vista x64):
- Download the latest "BR" release of SetPoint from http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/downloads/software/GB/EN,CRID=1796,contentid=12524 or ftp://ftp.logitech.com/pub/techsupport/mouse/setpoint400br.exe (32-bit) or ftp://ftp.logitech.com/pub/techsupport/mouse/setpoint400br_x64.exe (64-bit) (or the older 3.1BR version)
- Rename the .exe file to .cab and extract it with your favorite compression program (I use 7zip)
- In the " \3-BedRock" folder, run setup.exe or LComMgr.msi to install "Logitech Communications Manager".
- In the " \1-SetPoint" folder, run setup.exe to install SetPoint. Reboot and allow it to download any needed updates.
- Imstall Skype if not already installed.
- Install uberOptions and set a button to "VoIP: Launch via BedRock (Skype)", then it will popup a confirmations message. Then, the other VoIP functions should work with Skype.
If you just run the setpoint400_br.exe file, it would install Logitech Communications Manager without Skype support. If you did this on accident, you need to uninstall and re-install "3-BedRock" by hand (run 3-BedRock\uninstall.bat, then run 3-BedRock\setup.exe). To check if you installed Skype support, check to see if C:\Program Files\Common Files\Logitech\LComMgr\BRSkypePlugin.dll exists.
If you just run setpoint400_br.exe, you need to right-click 3-BedRock\LComMgr.msi and Uninstall, then Install it. To confirm success, check for C:\Program Files\Common Files\LogiShrd\LComMgr\BRSkypePlugin.dll.
You may also want to install "4-AEC" ("Logitech Audio Echo Cancellation") and "5-ATW" ("Logitech Audio Tuning Wizard", accessed via Audio Settings Wizard on the SetPoint tools tab) if you want to use those features (mostly for use with the EasyCall SpeakerPhone). Those 3 folders ("3-BedRock", "4-AEC", and "5-ATW") are the only difference between the "BR" releases and normal releases of SetPoint 3.10 and 3.30 that I can see.
