    Hello All,

    Having loaded Windows 7 on one of my machines, I now find that Kensington has not and will not update their Mouseworks software. The most recent version says it supports XP but no mention of Vista or Win7.

    They do offer Vista compatible software for the "slimblade" but I am using their "expert mouse".

    Has anyone tried their 6.22 [XP] version with either Vista or Win7?

    Thanks ahead of time!

    Bob

    GlobalForce,
    Thank you!
    The thread focused on Vista and I had to go to MS and search for and download a version of Intellipoint for Win7 but with that installed it worked.
    Best Regards,
    Bob

    Can't attach the files - they are executables - but here are the links to them:

    Intellipoint for Win7 64bit:

    Xmouse:

    Using XMouse, this is how the Expert Mouse buttons mapped for me on Win7:
    "Left Button" = Lower-left button
    "Right Button" = Lower-right button
    "Middle Button" = Upper-left button
    "Button 4" = Upper-right button


    Again, thanks!
    Bob

    OK Bob, good, and actually the dwnlds were easy enough with a little persistence. Happy to hear it worked out and thanks.
