Another serial mouse question! (I did not want to revive my 1 year old dead thread for this)
I'd love to use my 1988 Logitech ClearCase serial mouse with... well with any Windows OS other than Windows 3.1 (It seems to work fine). This mouse is actually a Logitech C7 serial mouse, it's just a fancy clear case they put on it and when booting into and running pure-dos (Ms DOS 9.10 apparently) I load the program ctmouse (Version 1.9.1). I load this program high (lh ctmouse) and it installes this mouse in "mouse systems mode"-- that's all it does the mouse doesn't work in dos, but it work flawlessly in Windows 3.1 using the Logitech driver that came with 3.1. When I run comtest (comes with ctmouse Version 2.1) on my laptop, the mouse is a "modem" it says however i disconnected the mouse and left the serial cable for it plugged in and comtest still said it was a modem! but the mouse was not attached!!!
So, I'd like to see if I can prevent Windows XP from loading any mouse drivers and get it to load ctmouse instead, and maybe then I can see if the mouse will work...
(Sorry for the long post! I wanted to give every detail i have)
