Be sure to post if this worked, and solved all the problems with the mx700

No one has any ideas for my install problems?

Ive tried a few things, but nothing works. And its not the download. I tried the download 3 times, without any downloading software(just IE).

Besides, its the setup file INSIDE the self-extractor that wont finish the install. The self extractor works fine.

I honestly have no idea. Prior to my last series of Windows formats, I had 9.76 installed without any problems at all.

Incidentally, when you did the forced .inf file install, which .inf did you use? There are 3 in the Win 2k/XP directory (after you extract the package using WinRAR).

Problem solved everyone. And i mean solved.

You NEED to do this, which is straight from logitechs help pages. I've done the below registry hack for Far Cry an UT2004 and i've got 5 full buttons in each and get to keep default XP mouseware setting at the same time. Damn great. Haven't tried the keystrokes yet.

Gaming Compatibility Changes
With version 9.75 and above, MouseWare now sends Microsoft native wheel messages. This new release should provide better wheel/roller function in games, as most games look for Microsoft compatible wheel messages.

The lastest version of MouseWare also has a new button assignment call "KeyStroke". Keystroke allows you to program your mouse buttons to keyboard keystrokes that you can use in your game. This will allow you to program up to 8 buttons of your pointing device.

Adding Other Games

In the case of games that don't use Direct Input and/or OpenGL, MouseWare has the flexibility to add other games. You can do this by editing the Windows Registry.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For information about how to edit the registry, view the "Changing Keys And Values", and "Restoring the registry", using the on line Help topic in the Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE).

WARNING: Using the Registry Editor incorrectly may cause symptoms requiring a reinstallation of Windows. Logitech cannot guarantee that issues resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use the Registry Editor at your own discretion. The Registry Editor should only be used to make the following modifications:

Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT in the open command line.
1. Click OK.
2. Open the Registry Editor and find the registry key below:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Logitech\MouseWare\Cur rentVersion\GamingCompatibility
3. Right click on the right side window of the Registry Editor and choose New String Value.
4. Type in the game's executable name. For example, game.exe. If you are unsure of the games executable name, please contact your game manufacturer.
5. Exit the registry editor; your changes are automatically saved.
6. Close and restart EM_EXEC.EXE, as described above.

Now when you play your game, the mouse will use native button functions; all MouseWare button assignments are now disabled in that game.

Repeat this procedure for any games that don't use Direct Input and/or OpenGL.

9.8 has been available for a while but only for the MX510 mouse. Are you talking about a version that supports all Logitech mice?

Default Re: Logitech Mouseware 9.76 released

I never installed the MouseWare software for my cordless elite duo (MX700 mouse) ... is there any sort of benefit to doing so? There's only one button (the task switcher) that doesn't work with the default windows drivers, so is there any performance boost to be gained by using them (especially for gaming)?

Cheers,
JND

Are your default drivers Microsoft HID or Logitech. If it's MS your may not be optimised for your mouse. That said i think mouseware is far more than just a button allocator. I found my mouse movements in games and on the desktop improved.

They were the Microsoft drivers. I installed the 9.79.1 MouseWare drivers and the mouse is much smoother, both in games and on the desktop. Thanks for the tip!
