    Microsoft USB mouse (scroll wheel)


    Strange, seeing this is a Microsoft branded mouse, BUT yet according to "Device Manager" it is showing the correct mouse, BUT also it is saying this mouse has NO buttons, nor the ability to double click. Went over to MSDN to record this event, but couldn't find a listing for Windows Developers preview...very STRANGE.

    Same thing. Nothing has changed in the hardware sheet. Still stating no buttons, nor the ability to double click. *edit* Shows even with the reinstall same driver as previous. *Re Edit* Should I use as a test my Desktop Microsoft USB mouse, the one I am currently using is a laptop version, on my laptop.

    Bringing this up to date. I had gotten a beta driver from Microsoft for the mouse, works fine now, and can scroll.
