    I recently installed a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse in Windows 7. The OS installed drivers automatically and they both work fine. The only problem is no battery level tab in Device Manager properties. Is it necessary to install Setpoint to get this feature?

    I believe yes it is necessary if you want to know battery level in your Logitech devices.
    Here is a screenshot from my SetPoint software:

    Yes you have to install Setpoint to get the battery level feature. BTW I have a DiNovo Edge keyboard and Revolution mouse and Set5point 6.15

    Sure is. I have a VX Nano and its required. Also have a Logitech G5 on my gaming laptop and its required to map keys to specific buttons.

    I decided to install the latest Setpoint software and unfortunately it does nothing. The mouse and keyboard tabs are missing from the Setpoint GUI and all the options for things like notify CAPS lock toggle, volume control changes, etc. do not work - nothing. I uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times, but that made no difference. I contacted Logitech support. First they quoted the uninstall/reinstall FAQ (I had already stated that I'd done that, but whatever). Then they offered to replace the keyboard & mouse. I would only consider doing that if theirs' some real possibility it would solve the problem....? The keyboard and mouse work fine with the generic Microsoft driver so I think it's unlikely replacing them would make a difference, unless there's newer firmware in the components. Any thoughts?
