I have a Microsoft Ergonomic Laser Mouse 7000. http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/mo...s.aspx?pid=086
I really love the mouse, but I am having issues with the scroll wheel in certain apps (e.g. Cubase, Syncback, Digsby, audio plugins) since Vista. Note
: This does not happen with my old optical mouse. I never had this issue with any mouse in Windows XP.
I'll try to explain my findings, and would love any help to try and completely resolve the issue:
1) After a fresh install of Vista or Windows 7 RC1, the scroll wheel does not behave correctly in these apps. You must spin EXTREMELY fast to make it move or it behaves erratically. After some research, I found that MS have implemented a "high resolution" scroll wheel behavior since Vista, which is obviously not supported by all applications.
I found this document on the Microsoft site which explains all the details: http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...f5b/Wheel.docx
The document suggests changing some registry values to disable this high resolution behavior. Thus I did just that and added the following 2 entries to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\HID\Vid_xxxx&Pid_yyyy\<instance_ID>\Device Parameters VScrollHighResolutionDisable
= 1 HScrollHighResolutionDisable
This actually fixed the issue after rebooting, and I thought I had it all sorted.
2) I then thought it would be a good idea to install my Intellipont drivers
(v7.0 beta for Windows 7) to get all the benefits of the mouse. The drivers are also very helpful because the scrollwheel is usually far too sensitive, and the drivers fix this.
Of course (just my luck) after installing the drivers, the problem re-appeared. The registry entry I had entered above was still in the registry too.
If you kill ipoint.exe and then disable / enable the mouse driver
in Device Manager, the problem goes away. As soon as you start ipoint.exe again, the problem re-appears.
So the main thing I want to figure out, is how to disable this high resolution behaviour with the Intellipoint drivers installed.
Can anyone assist?
There are quite a few threads on the net about this too, but no resolution: WINAMP.COM | Forums - Mouse Scroll not working in Vista OpenOffice.org Forum :: Scroll wheel not working in Vista java.net Forums : Windows Vista and mouse wheel problems ... #3232 (Mouse Wheel does not work (Microsoft Laser Mouse 8000)) - VirtualBox
This is currently my biggest gripe with Windows 7, I really REALLY hope to find a resolution. If anyone can help, I really would appreciate it
