filtering input to system cursor

filtering input to system cursor

We are using RawInput to detect inputs from multiple connected mice and this
is working well.

However, is there a way to instruct the OS to only use input from one of the
mice when changing the system cursor position etc, but still have access to
all mice inputs via RawInput? By default inputs from all connected mice
effect the system cursor which is not what we need.

I've tried turning off legacy messages for mouse devices and then emulating
messages based on input from only one of the mice, but this does not seem to

I'm using VS 2005, coding in C, XP SP2 and Vista.

Thank you.
