  ________________________________________

1.   Installation
  
  MouseWare supports Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Millennium,
  Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 2000.
  
  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,
  Windows Millennium, and Windows 2000.
  
1.1  Standard Installation
  
  Run Setup.exe to install the MouseWare software.
  
1.2  Unattended Installation for Networking & Corporate Users
  
  One may install MouseWare in unattended mode by executing the
  following command:
     <path to Mouseware installation>\setup.exe -s
  The installation program terminates and returns to Windows at
  the end of the installation.
  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.

2.   Uninstall Program
  
  MouseWare can be removed from Windows by clicking the
  Add/Remove Programs icon in the Control Panel. Select MouseWare
  and click 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.

  
3.   Troubleshooting
3.1  iFeel Mouse Issues
  
  If your iFeel mouse does not function, or does not provide
  feedback support, please try the following:
  
  1) Make sure your system meets the system requirements for
     iFeel mice.  Windows 98, Windows Millennium, or Windows
     2000, and an available USB port is required.
  
  2) Try unplugging, then re-plugging the iFeel mouse from the
     USB port.
  
  3) If you are connecting the iFeel mouse to a USB hub, make
     sure the hub is self-powered (i.e. the hub is powered by an
     external power supply).  Because the iFeel mouse is a high-
     powered device, it will not work with bus-powered hubs,
     such as those found on some USB keyboards.  If you have
     problem getting the mouse to work on a hub, try connecting
     the mouse directly to the USB port on the system.
  
  4) Open Mouse Properties, and select the iFeel tab.  Make sure
     the "Enabled" option is selected and the Strength slider is
     not set to 0 % or another minimum setting.  Test the iFeel
     support by hovering the cursor over the Preview icon.  You
     should feel the vibration from the mouse.
  
  5) Try exiting and re-starting the Immersion Desktop software.
     Right-click on the Immersion Desktop icon in the System
     tray and select Exit.  Then click on "Start", "Programs",
     and "Immersion Desktop".
  
  6) Make sure iFeel support (Immersion Desktop) is installed.
     If there is no "Immersion Desktop" icon on the Programs
     menu, re-run the MouseWare installation from the CD-ROM.
     At the Setup Options box, make sure there is a checkmark in
     the box for "iFeel Support" (de-select the MouseWare option
     if it has been already been installed), then proceed with
     the installation.
  
  7) Try exiting and restarting EM_EXEC.EXE.  To do this, go to
     "Start", then select "Run".  On the "Open" line type the
     following:
  
          "C:\Program Files\Logitech\MouseWare\System\EM_EXEC.EXE" /q
  
     To restart EM_EXEC.EXE, go to "Start", "Settings", then
     "Control Panel".  Now double click on the Mouse icon.  Move
     the mouse cursor over icons, buttons, etc. and see if you
     feel the feedback.

3.2  Detection Issues with USB Mice
  
  Please note that USB mice are only supported under Windows 98,
  Windows Millennium, and Windows 2000.
  
  If your USB mouse is not detected properly or does not
  functions, please use the following steps to check the Mouse
  icon under the Device Manager.
  
  Click on "Start", "Settings", then "Control Panel".  Double
  click on the System icon and select the Device Manager tab.
  Open the Mouse icon by clicking on the (+) plus sign and verify
  there is a mouse icon that states, "HID-compliant mouse", and
  another entry that states the name of your USB device.  If
  there are any errors reported on these icons by exclamation
  points or red X's, highlight these icons and click the "Remove"
  button.   Once these icons have been removed, click the
  "Refresh" button and allow Windows 98 to re-detect the pointing
  device.  Open the Mouse icon again and verify that there are no
  errors reported.  Power down the computer system and restart
  Windows.  Test the USB device to see if it is now functional.
  
3.3  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
     properly.
  
  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 supports.
  
  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.
  
3.4  Conflicts with Modems and other Serial Devices
  
  On bootup, the Logitech mouse drivers search all PS/2 and COM
 ports for possible pointing devices.  If your modem or other
 serial device no longer functions after installing Logitech
 mouse drivers, you must eliminate the COM port your modem is on
 from the search as shown below.
  
  1) Windows 9x
     If you have problems operating other serial devices together
     with MouseWare, in Windows 95 run "Regedit.exe", edit the
     key:
     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Logitech\MouseWare\CurrentVersio
     n\Global\PortSearchOrder and remove the COM port that the
     affected serial device is using.
  
  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 key:
     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\lsermou
     s\Parameters\Global\PortSearchOrder and remove the COM port
     that the affected serial device is using.
  
3.5  Power Management Problems
  
  If your mouse freezes when waking your PC up from suspend, in
  Windows 9x run "Regedit.exe", then open the registry key:
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Logitech\MouseWare\CurrentVersion\T
  echnical\APMMode
  and set APMMode="Off"

3.6  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
  "regedit", and click on the OK button.
  
  Open the following Registry folders:
  
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Class\Mous
  e\xxxx
  
  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 Center.
  
3.7  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 Microsoft Office compatible
     applications, go to the Buttons page in the mouse control panel
     and verify that the check box "Use MS Office 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:
  
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Logitech\MouseWare\CurrentVersion\T
 ouchScroll
  
  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.
