Alan, I respectfully disagree with your advice. IntelliPoint 4.12 should
not be used with IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0.
The only update I've found to IntelliPoint 4.0 for this particular mouse is
IntelliPoint 4.01 per the links below.
However, IntelliPoint 4.12 should be used for IntelliMouse (discontinued),
IntelliMouse Optical, IntelliMouse with IntelliEye (discontinued) .... but
NOT with IntelliMouse Explorer.
My Device Manager recommends I keep my present drivers as they are the best
drivers for my system. That's what I'm going to do. If I had chosen to
install the drivers for IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 [5-14-2001] in lieu of
the drivers for PS/2 Compatible Mouse Port, the only driver file would be
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32\vmouse.vxd (File version: 4.10.2223).
| My Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 in Win98 SE shows this:
| C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\VMM32\vmouse.vxd (File version: 4.10.2225)
| C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MSMOUSE.VXD (File version: 11.40.852)
| C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MOUSE.DRV (File version: 9.01.0.000)
| I don't know why vmouse.vxd doesn't show in Msinfo32 (mine doesn't
| either) but if you download the latest drivers, then surely that is
| all you need to do?
