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).
  
  
1.1  Standard Installation
  
  Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0
  Run Setup.exe from the floppy diskette to install the MouseWare
  software.
  
1.2  Drivers Only Installation
  
  Windows 95, Windows 95 OSR2, 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.
  
  Windows 95, Windows OSR2 and Windows NT 4.0
   
  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) For Windows 95, or Windows OSR2, double Click on the "Win9x"
     folder.
  10)For Windows NT 4.0 double click on the "Winnt" folder.
  11)Click the "Open" or "OK" button.
  12)Click on the "OK" button.
  13)Select, "Show all Devices"
  14)Under "Models", select the correct model that matches the
     pointing device type and click on the "OK" button.
  15)Windows should now copy the updated mouse drivers to the
     system.
  16)Click on "Close".
  17)Windows should now ask you to restart the system for the
     changes to take effect, click on "YES" to restart the
     system.
  
1.3  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:
  
  A:\lgexpand A:\WMOUSECC.EX~ C:\MOUSE\WMOUSECC.EXE
  
  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 95 and NT 4.0 by clicking
  the Add/Remove Programs icon in the Windows 95 or NT 4.0
  Control Panel. Select MouseWare and press the Remove button.
  
  Windows 95
  The driver itself cannot be removed by this process. You can
  manually change the driver to another one as described in
  section 1.3.
  
  
3.   Features
  
3.1  Zooming in Windows 95 and NT 4.0
  
  In Windows 95 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
  function.
  
  
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
     adaptors, connect the mouse to the computer through the
     serial port. Reboot and check if the mouse is detected
     properly.
  
  3) If adaptor(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.
  
  
4.2  Conflicts with other Serial Devices
  
  1) Windows 95
     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 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
     key:
     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\lsermou
     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 95 run Regedit.exe and edit the key:
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Logitech\MouseWare\CurrentVersion\T
  echnical\APMMode="Off"
  
  
4.4  Enhanced Mouse Control Panel is not Updated
  
  Under Windows 95 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 95 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:
  
  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.
  
  
4.5  Problems Operating the Wheel
  
  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.
