I have a little problem, in games that use direct input (such as UT and Q3A) the middle mouse button does not function. I''ll try to install the latest drivers for the mouse but if that dosen''t work what else can i do? BTW, i have a PS/2 MS Intellimouse

And for all the others who are too lazy to download the latest drivers, I found this in my C:\mouse folder (readme.txt) after I installed some obviously older logitech mouse drivers (ver 8.32)...


4.5 How to disable the Middle Button Double-Click

NOTE: For information about how to edit the registry, view the
"Changing Keys And Values" on line Help topic in the
Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE). Make a backup copy of
the registry files (SYSTEM.DAT and USER.DAT) before
you edit the registry.

WARNING: Using the Registry Editor incorrectly may cause
symptoms requiring a reinstallation of Windows 95/98.
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. Please follow the
instructions below:

1. Click on the "Start" button on the Windows 95/98 taskbar
and select "Run".
2. On the Open line, type "C:\WINDOWS\REGEDIT.EXE" and click
the "OK" button.
3. From the Registry Editor screen, double click on
4. Double click on SOFTWARE.
5. Double click on LOGITECH.
6. Double click on MOUSEWARE.
7. Double click on CURRENTVERSION.
8. Find your device model from the list under "CurrentVersion"
and double click on that folder.
9. Click on the "0000" folder and information should be
displayed on the right side of the Registry Editor screen.
10. Under the "Name" column, double click on the "DoubleClick"
entry and the "Edit String" dialogue box should appear.
11. Modify the "Value Data" line to read "0000" and click the
"OK" button.
12. Exit the Registry Editor (saving is automatic) and restart
Windows 95/98.

The middle button should now generate a standard middle
button event.
