Windows 7: Is there a Mouse Diagnostic tool?

Is there a Mouse Diagnostic tool?

I have a Logitech MX300 with wireless 3 button mouse.
The left, right and scroll wheel work fine, the center button doesn't seem to work at all.
I have the latest version of SetPoint and tried setting it up with different key mappings but to no avail.
I'm not even sure if it's working.

Is there any diagnostic tool that will show me when I push a button that it's being activated?

I first tried to get it to work in WOW(World of Warcraft) but no luck. I then realized it doesn't even seem to work outside the game. I mapped the button to be an 'X' and opened a text file. Pressing the button resulted in no action, no X's.

I'm running Win7 64bit.

Any ideas or info about a tool?

Thanks!

I have found that when one button stops working, it usually means that the mouse has gone bad. I think that Logitech warranty is 5 years, and when I sent them a message about a mouse limping like yours, then sent me a new one, without even returning the old one.

Thanks!, I'll keep that in mind.
The thing is only about a year old.

Most likely that button is bad. it's not uncommon either, I've had plenty of mice lose the middle click.
Logitech has excellent customer service, I recently called about an MX Revolution that stopped working properly, left click issue.
Since the mouse was 1.5 years past the warranty which I knew before I called, they couldn't warranty it so they gave me a 50% off code to purchase a new mouse, so I bought a G700.
While I was waiting for the G700 to arrive, my V550 mouse that I was using had an issue with the scroll wheel, it would scroll up fine but would sometimes not register scrolling down.
Called up Logitech and they sent me a M515 Couch Mouse, which arrived Tuesday.

I just want to verify that it's actually not working before I give them a call.

At work I tried FreshDiagnose and I don't see anything that gives me real time feedback if a button is actually being pushed or not.
It just shows a bunch of driver info, configuration and # of buttons and wheel.

Am I missing something?

It's a very impressive tool otherwise.

Thanks

Unfortunately I don't have the manual but I looked on their website and didn't see anything. I will type in mouse though and see it it finds anything.


Thanks All!
