Apex Link - Setup Guide
« on: 04:28 AM - 03/26/18 »


How its all connected (The numbers below correspond with the image above.)

Once connected and you have the Apex Link software installed, run software and press the 'Pause/Break' key to activate, your mouse and keyboard are now switched through to XIM Apex.

Use the Apex manager to adjust setting.

Hope this helps those that are new to this type of setup.

Excellent set up diagram. Thank you.
I want to use my keyboard as my input device on the PC and my keypad to game on my console. If I connect as per your diagram with the keypad also connected to the PC, will they function as described?

What if I use a nav controller instead of a keyboard, will this still work if its a wired connection?

My ps nav works fine with sandhawc because you can just plug it in the xim not the pc if you want,
So i suppose it will work also with LINK.
