Microsoft SideWinder Mice & IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 Drivers 7.0 Beta for Windows 7 32-bit
This software and drivers are still in a beta phase but are necessary for your Microsoft input devices to work properly under Windows 7.
Read all installation notes and known issues for important details before beginning software installation.
Your Microsoft mouse will work with basic functionality when running the Windows(R) 7 operating system prior to installing the IntelliPoint software. Installing the software is required for full functionality.
Regardless of whether you purchased the keyboard and mouse together in a desktop set, you must run Setup for the mouse and the keyboard separately.
Microsoft is aware of the following known issues when using IntelliPoint 7.0 with Windows 7.
1.1 The magnifier feature might appear jittery when moved. When resizing the magnifier, the screen might flash black.
1.2 Complete device information might not be displayed in Windows 7 Devices and Printers. The Windows 7 Devices and Printers uses metadata to display additional information about devices, including pictures. Except for Microsoft Bluetooth devices, the metadata for Microsoft wireless mice will not display in Devices and Printers.
1.3 The Windows Live Call feature, which can be assigned to mouse buttons, might not start Windows Live Messenger.
Note: Before proceeding with your driver installation we suggest you make sure you are installing the latest version available and for the appropriate model/revision and Operating System. We strongly suggest following 'readme' instructions for installing drivers when available. Often restarting your system will be necessary for the new driver to become active and start functioning properly.
