Mice & Multi-Boot System

3 posts in this topic

I'm using a Kensington 72121 with a multi-boot system. It works fine with Windows
and Linux operating systems.

This Kensington model is no longer manufactured, but it's still available on a few sites.
The 72121 I'm using now is working ok. I prefer corded mice. Logitech's M500 seems
like a good substitute.

I've got some unique software running on 98SE that was created for my business. If I
keep 98SE the only way I could install Logitech's SetPoint software is with KernelEx.
I've tried KernelEx a few times. There were so many problems I always restored the
system before the KernelEx install.

Besides the big guys like Microsoft or Logitech I've noticed many other brands that I
don't know much about. Can someone suggest a mouse and software package that
is compatible with 98SE?

If you have  PS/2  port on the motherboard, that is the absolute easiest way to get around a driver issue like you're having.

 

It will work in every OS with no driver issues whatsoever. Plenty of optical PS/2 mice are available from a multitude of vendors.

I don't get it. :unsure:

Is this the one? It says 98 and up. Also USB or PS2 "flavors".

And this appears to be the attached photo in your post -

So, what "features" are lacking that you need for this "software"? "Hotkeys"? (SMH)

 

BTW, why are you using Logitech software with a Kensington mouse?

Try using Kensington Mouseworks to see if it fits the bill.
