That's there way of trying to sell you a "New and improved mouse" Logitech told me my old Quickcam 3000 wouldn't work in Windows Vista or Windows 7. I got it working in both. Why actully support a product when we can just make them buy a new one! Typical corporate phillosophy. I'll keep looking and see if I can come up with something else to try.

I've already tried the compatibility mode but with no success (maybe because the setup.exe has 32 bit drivers?). Anyway, I'm tyred of trying to put my mouse to work. I'm going to try the x86 W7 and report back later.

PS: Do you guys think I'll notice some performance loss with the x86 version? I'm not going to use any image/video editing software, just office, and some recent games (to take advantage of my ATI 4890 graphics card)...

You wont notice any performance degradation in any case - if you want to strip the OS down you can, by going into Control Panel - Programs and Features - Turn Windows Features On or Off (on the left side) You can completely remove IE8 if your using another browser likewise Media Player 12 - also media centre if you dont have any use for it - tablet pc - fax and scan - and any of the other features you dont use.

Well, I finally solved my problem by installing W7 x86... I didn't have to do nothing else besides installing the OS, as the mouse start working immediately.
I want to appreciate all you ppl that helped me out but I think I'll need your help again since my DVD drive stopped reading any kind of discs (will start a new thread)

Again, thank you all.

Problem solved, thread can be closed.

To yakisir
I've just been to the site http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/do...px?category=MK and your mouse is only supported by WXP however if you go to the above site and download the xp driver you might be able to get it to install using compatibility mode if it wont install normally because of the OS mismatch - to do this do the following :
To install a driver OR program in compatibility mode - right click the setup.exe file - click properties - click compatibility - check run in compatibility with vista/xp etc - check run as administrator - leave the rest blank. Start setup.exe and install.

In detail (this apply's to W7 also) : You cannot install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows Vista

hi whest,thanks for your help but I tried to install it with Windows XP (Service Pack 2) compatibility and did not work, I also tried other service packs of XP and Vista. I click on yes when asked for overwrite of existing files.

Time for a new mouse, I got an old one but its not wireless so mine still works - did you try installing thru device manager? You have to unzip the package, and locate the info file - the detail link tells you how in my last post - briefly you just right click the mouse in device manager, and select update driver, and then select the browse option, and go to the folder with the info file (.inf) - If your had enough just treat yourself to a new mouse, as I doubt if that will make any difference.

Only suggestion is to go to the manufactures site and make sure the new mouse has W7 drivers, also make sure its compatible with your screen resolution.
