The installation of Connection Manager PRO is easy and intuitive. You can place the program files where you want them. During the installation process you are give these options:
Automatically generate profiles from existing network connections
Import profiles from a file
Create new profile with wizard

I choose the "Automatically generate profiles from existing network connections".

When you start Connection Manager PRO you are told it is a 14 day evaluation version. Fair enough.

The first time that I started Connection Manager PRO with the above option I got this:
The profile file data are invalid.

I then pushed the button with the head and the question mark on it that the tool tip says:
Identify the best profile matching current configuration.

Connection Manager PRO then searched my laptop's network connections. It found my Ethernet adapter and offered to create a profile based on that. Good choice since that is how the laptop was then connected to the internet. It then went into the Connection Manager PRO Profile Wizard. I hit next and this screen appeared:

I named this Local Ethernet, you then can pick which Workgroup you want this profile in. You can then select which printer if any that you want assigned to this profile, then you can select which, if any, email account you want to use with this profile. You can then setup a VPN (Virtual Private Network)

I then disconnected from that profile and plugged in my wireless PCMCIA network card, and it found the access point and I could easily setup a profile for it.

I hope that you have gotten the point. With Connection Manager PRO, it's profiles and Wizards, you are going to be able to effortlessly use your laptop at home, at the office on the road.

In conclusion I really like Connection Manager PRO and can highly recommend it to you.

Try It! Buy It!
