1.   Installation
  Before installing any software under Windows NT 4.0, we
  strongly recommend you create an Emergency Repair Disk using
  the Repair Disk utility provided by the system (RDISK.EXE).
  Please note that USB mice are only supported under Windows 98.
1.1  Standard Installation
  Windows 95 (OSR2), Windows 98 (both of them together from now
  on referred to as Windows 9x when applicable) and Windows NT
  Run Setup.exe from the floppy diskette to install the MouseWare
1.2  Drivers Only Installation
  Windows 9x and Windows NT 4.0 have the ability to load device
  drivers without running the Setup program. Loading the devices
  drivers this way, however, does not install the user interface
  programs such as the Enhanced Mouse Control Center. Using the
  "Have Disk" function will install only the mouse drivers and
  will automatically set up the middle button of a 3/4 button
  mouse to do a double click.
  Please execute the following steps to perform a driver-only
 1)   Click on the "Start" button on the Windows Desktop.
 2)   Select "Settings", then "Control Panel". 
 3)   From the Control Panel, double click on the Mouse Icon.
 4)   Select the "General" tab.
 5)   From the "General" tab, click on "Change".
 6)   Click the "Have Disk" button.
 7)   Insert the MouseWare Disk 1 into the disk drive.
 8)   When prompted, click the Browse button.
 9)   Depending on the operating system double click on the
      following folder
    a)   Win95, for Windows 95 (OSR2)
    b)   Win98, for Windows 98
    c)   WinNT, for Windows NT 4.0
 10)  Click the "Open" or "OK" button.
 11)  Click on the "OK"
 12)  Select, "Show all Devices"
 13)  Under "Models", select the correct model that matches the
      pointing device type and click on the "OK" button.
 14)  Windows should now copy the updated mouse drivers to the
 15)  Click on "Close".
 16)  Windows should now ask you to restart the system for the
      changes to take effect, click on "YES" to restart the system.
1.3  Unattended Installation for Networking & Corporate Users
  One may install MouseWare in unattended mode under Windows 9x
  or NT 4.0 by executing the following command:
     <path to Mouseware installation>\setup.exe /q
  The second parameter forces the installation program to not
  perform an automatic system reboot at the end of execution.
  Omitting this parameter will result in an automatic system
  Note: This is an advanced feature where no visible feedback on
  the status of the installation in progress is given. Aborting
  the proceeding installation may leave the system in unstable
  conditions. The configurations of connected pointing devices
  default to pre-defined values that are expected to be
  reasonable for most users.
1.4  Manually Decompressing Files
  Several files on the installation disk have been compressed.
  These files must be decompressed before you can use them. The
  SETUP program automatically decompresses these files during
  installation. However, should the need arise, we have provided
  a method for you to manually decompress these files. Compressed
  files have file names that end with a tilde sign (~). To
  decompress a file manually, use the LGEXPAND.EXE utility
  provided on the installation disk.
  For example, to decompress the file "WMOUSECC.EXE" to your hard
  disk, type:
  Please make sure that the destination directory (C:\MOUSE in
  this example) exists before you issue this command.
2.   Uninstall Program
  MouseWare can be removed from Windows 9x and NT 4.0 by clicking
  the Add/Remove Programs icon in the Windows 9x or NT 4.0
  Control Panel. Select MouseWare and press the Remove button.
  Windows 9x
  MouseWare drivers will be removed from the system if setup
  finds alternate compatible drivers for a device in MSMOUSE.INF.
  Should this not be the case you can manually change the driver
  to another one as described in section 1.3.
3.   Features
3.1  Zooming in Windows 9x and NT 4.0
  In Windows 9x and Windows NT 4.0, some applications, as
  Office97, support the zooming. To zoom in such applications,
  just press the [Ctrl] key and roll your mouse's wheel (if any)
  or use the Universal Scroll button assignment. Be sure your
  application is Office 97 compliant and supports the zoom
4.   Troubleshooting
4.1  Detection Problems with PS/2 Pointing Devices
  If your mouse is connected to the mouse port and is not
  detected by the system, attempt the following step(s):
  1) Your mouse port might need to be enabled through the SETUP
     menu of your computer. Please check your computer
     documentation regarding the SETUP menu.
  2) If you have a mouse with both serial and mouse port
     adapters, connect the mouse to the computer through the
     serial port. Reboot and check if the mouse is detected
  3) If adapter(s) were not included in your package, your mouse
     was designed to work on only one type of port (Serial OR
     PS/2). Refer to your package for the type of port your mouse
  If the problem persists, please check for a possible computer
  BIOS ROM upgrade from your computer manufacturer.
  Some notebook systems, such as IBM ThinkPad, have both an
  external Mouse Port and an integrated Pointing Stick, which is
  connected to the Mouse Port. If your mouse is having difficulty
  running on the Mouse Port of this type of system, try using the
  serial port instead.
  The 500/700 series of IBM Thinkpad require you to disable the
  internal pointer stick or you may not get wheel/roller
4.2  Conflicts with other Serial Devices
  1) Windows 9x
     If you have problems operating other serial devices together
     with MouseWare, in Windows 95 run Regedit.exe, edit the key:
     n\Global\PortSearchOrder and remove the unused COM ports.
  2) Windows NT 4.0
     If you have problems operating other serial devices together
     with MouseWare, in Windows NT 4.0 run Regedit.exe, edit the
     s\Parameters\Global\PortSearchOrder and remove the unused
     COM ports.
4.3  Power Management Problems
  If your mouse freezes when waking your PC up from suspend, in
  Windows 9x run Regedit.exe and edit the key:
4.4  Enhanced Mouse Control Panel is not Updated
  Under Windows 9x if the Mouse properties has not been updated
  to Enhanced Mouse Control Center, verify you have installed
  MouseWare. If this does not resolve this issue, it may be
  necessary to do a registry clean-up. Remove the following
  folders in the Windows 9x Registry.
  Select the Start button, then Run, in the Open Line type
  C:\WINDOWS\REGEDIT.EXE and click on the OK button.
  Open the following Registry folders:
  Remove all of the 0000, 0001, 0002, etc. under the Mouse folder
  until there are no folders remaining under the Mouse folder.
  Now shutdown your system and restart. Open the Mouse Properties
  and check to see if you now have the Enhanced Mouse Control
4.5  Scrolling/wheel related issues
  If your mouse is equipped with a wheel and the wheel does not
  scroll, verify the following:
  1) Verify that the Logitech control panel is installed
     properly. If you click the Start button and select Settings,
     Control Panel, the mouse icon should bring up a Logitech
     control panel. Otherwise reinstall MouseWare.
  2) If your wheel only works in Office 97 compatible
     applications, go to the Buttons page in the mouse control
     panel and verify that the check box "Use Office 97
     Compatible Scroll Only" is unchecked.
 Please note that the scrolling mouse functions for touchpads do
 only work with Logitech touchpads. This is the case if you can
 find a "Touchpad"tab in the mouse control panel. Alternatively
 you can search for the following key in the registry:
  In order to look at the registry click the "Start"button and
  select "Run". Type "regedit"in the open line and click on the
  OK button.
  Note that the information in the Mouseware help file concerning
  touchpad support only applies to Logitech touchpads.
