To install the software that comes with the Saitek GM2400 Laser Mouse, all you need to do is insert the Setup CD into your optical drive. An installer should auto run, but if it doesn't you can always launch it yourself from the Windows Explorer. When it does come up, a screen will let you know what the installer will accomplish. After that screen, you are presented with a disclaimer that keeps Saitek out of trouble in case you do something stupid.
The next screen shows you what the programing software can do and asks if you want to install it. You can install it later, but we are going to install it now. Then a bunch of screens will pop up with the "new hardware found" dialogue.
After the install is complete you will be asked to register the product, but this is optional. You can then run the profile editor by clicking Next.
The configuration panel allows you to adjust settings for each of the modes that are selectable on the mouse. You can do everything from changing both the axis' sensitivity to making macros for the different buttons. There isn't a lot of documentation, so figuring out how to use this can be difficult and I actually wound up getting a blue screen. At the top is an area that allows you to name each profile. The sliders underneath can then be used to adjust the sensitivity of the mouse. Finally, there is a place where you can create macros that are run by clicking the corresponding mouse button.
