Windows 7: G9 + Vegas 2 = Headaches

G9 + Vegas 2 = Headaches

I recently purchased this mouse and I immediately downloaded the latest setpoint for it, but I am having an issue where whenever I start playing Vegas 2, I can only use the 2 main buttons.

I have already made a custom profile but to no avail. the only thing that seems to work is:

1.- Start the game
2.- Alt+Tab out
3.- Re-Install Setpoint
4.- Get back into the game
5.- Play with the use of all mouse buttons.

I know the drivers are not for the Windows 7 but the Vista x64 work fine as you can see, they just need a little double tap on the head

Do you guys have an easy suggestion? Aside from the fact that I can't seem to get use to this mouse, now, I am having game issues... it looks more and more like I am going to have to go back to the G7 mouse

well reading through a few posts on other forums (courtesy of google) other people are having issues with setpoint 5.9(?)(posts are from you? ). so you may need wait for a software update from the manufacturer.

Well, I did search but found nothing (as you can see in my attachement ), probably I was using the wrong syntax. No, the only other forum I bother folks with PC issues is Vistax64.com (sister forum to this one), besides, as stated before, as soon as I got the G9, I downloaded the latest software which was Setpoint 5.10.

My only other alternative would be to try the original Setpoint 5.0 and not update it to see if that helps resolve my issue

Well, the patch didn't work as I had suspected... I guess I am going to have to register on the Logitech forum and raise a little bit of hell there in order to get some answers.

I have a feeling is something simple as it doesn't make any sense that as soon as I reinstall, the mouse works perfectly... is like it looses the custom profile for the game.

Patch worked for me, that was the problem I was having, mouse was not remembering the custom profiles.

Good luck, hope you find a fix

I am going to try uninstalling the setpoint software from the Vista dual boot side to see if that solves the problem, although, it seem pretty far fetched and illogical but... I am out of ideas.

My next stop is selling it on ebay or hardforum.

Ah, you didn't say that you were dual booting Win7 and Vista. The mouse can only be installed to one OS at a time due to the mouse saving profiles in the onboard memory. When you switch between the two operating systems and enter the setup it detects the mouse for the "first" time and it defaluts the mouse to basic installation settings.

I suggest that you use the onboard memory function to switch profiles as opposed to setting it for software Application Detection. Create multiple profiles, save them to the onboard memory and use the button on the bottom of the mouse with the arrow selection to change profiles.

This should eliminate the need to install Setpoint on one system as you will be using the onboard memory for mouse functionality on the other.

Well, again, not to sound like an ingrate but, one of the things I read about this mouse is how great the onboard memory profile is, how you can take it anywhere and you use it on other computers, etc, etc, etc.

Anyway, after so many things I have tried, I have been able to make it work w/o having to re install. NOw, at least, I have to Alt + Tab out of the game, get into the setpoint II settings and activate the onboard game profile, go back to the game and I have the use of all the mouse buttons.

Still a PITA but, not as much of a hassle as before.

Thanks

Does the mouse fail to manually change profiles for you? I'm talking about flipping the mouse over, pushing the profile button and using the arrow button/dpi button on the top of the mouse to change profiles.

I have 2 profiles and I set them to two different colors to indicate of the profile change has occurred.

Yes, a PITA but if one can actually get this mouse to work it is the best gaming mouse on the market IMO after trying many others, Microsoft, Razer, etc. Hope this helps and good luck!

Also, if you use Xfire, my user name is erratikone. Add me if you play CoD4 at all or anything else!
