    I've an old PackardBell mouse (C0-5P) that I'd like to use with XP,
    but find that the drivers screws things up.

    I've been unable to get software that'll work with it, that will allow
    me to set the wheel button to click on a key. Old software lets you
    set it to click on any one of the F keys. I use these for Macros.

    I find that old versions of Intellimouse don't work any more, and the
    original driver won't work.. but am interested if anyone could suggest
    a driver that'll let me use one button as a Macro or a key.



    Thanks

    You'd be best off to get a new mouse that will support what you want to
    accomplish. XP will not work reliably with many of the older drivers.

    I got to this site using a Google search for C0-5P driver.

    This site has a pointer to a driverguide.com site which requires free
    registration.

    Of course, you can use bugmenot.com or register with a throwaway free
    email address. (and then possibly post it to bugmenot.com)

    You might also try packardbell.com. I believe the trademark is now
    owned by Acer so I don't know if they carry drivers for when there was
    an actual company.

    Thanks for the info.

    I seemed to be having problems with the drivers from drivers.com, but
    will try to see if I can get them working.
