Hi Liza,
Your next question is going to be how or what? :O)
This explains some of it. I haven't had time to read it all and there are some more links I need to check out, which I'll do a bit later this evening.

Hi Liza,
I think if you can use the xp drivers instead, you might be ok. My cordless laser mouse from Logitech uses xp HID drivers. HID stands for human interface drivers, or is it input drivers, anyway, they are part of xp. I've never even tried loading Logitech's stuff.

Hi Bob,

Ok. I removed the mouse and restarted the machine. It found the mouse
again. I installed the 9.75 drivers- they are the last drivers to support
the webwheel. It still didn't work. With that version, it gets an error
after rebooting saying "event handler caused an error" or something. I click
ok and that goes away. I click on mouse properties, it's still a two button
mouse configuration with nothing for the wheel that I can see.

Hi Liza,
What happens if you go to device manager and remove the mouse with the
remove button. Restart the machine and it should load the mouse automaticly.
My mouse shows a two button mouse in control panel, but has a wheel tab at
the top to set the wheels motion.

Subject: [pcductape] driver problem with Cordless Trackman FX



I recently reformatted my hard drive, and when re-installing all of my
software, I thought I had misplaced my CD for my Logitech Cordless
Trackman FX, so I went to the website and downloaded the newest
drivers. The new drivers didn't support the webwheel effect that I
liked so much about the mouse, so I contacted Logitech. At first,
they didn't want to give me any older drivers, but then they gave me
an ftp site to search for version 9.61.
I tried that, it showed up as a two button mouse, with no web-wheel. I
have
a four button mouse. I also looked on DriverGuide.com and found version
9.75
which is supposed to support the webwheel. That showed up as a two-button
mouse, too. I found a CD for logitech that had version 9.14 or something,
and originally tried that and it showed up as a two button mouse. I also
found an updated Windows XP driver that I had downloaded for the mouse and
tried that and it ALSO showed up as a two-button mouse. The only driver
software that seems to show up as a four button mouse now is the new one.
My
question is this: is it possible since I installed the newest driver 9.79
and uninstalled it, that it is staying in the registry and not allowing
any
older drivers to work right? I can't think of anything else, because the
older ones used to show up the right way. Right now, they are ALL
uninstalled, but who knows what the registry looks like since I tried
version 9.14, uninstalled it, 9.61, uninstalled it, 9.75 uninstalled it,
9.79, uninstalled it.
Thanks for your help.
