Wireless Intellimouse Explorer - can't get scroll wheel just to be a middle mouse button!

I have a microsoft mouse. Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0 to be exact.
Using it with XP SP2 and with the Intellimouse driver installed.

The problem is that I'm using a program (xFig) where you need to be able
to press the middle mouse button. The scroll wheel on the Intellimouse
is also effectively a middle button you can click, but at the moment the
click is set up to do "Next window" in the intellimouse software. The
intellimouse software also lets you chagne what action the buttons have.
Fine, except that there is no "middle button click" action! There is
only left click and right click. How can I get round this and just have
a plain old middle mouse button?

thanks
alex

Hi Alex

Hmm, there is a "middle-click" option in my Intellipoint software,
version 5.20, and I'm using it. Or is this not what you mean?
