Mouse wheel tilits suddenly stopped being intercepted

Post by Adrianrff » Sun Mar 19, 2017 4:17 am

I've been using mouse wheel tilts simulated key presses assigned in XMouse BC ever since I installed it, and have been using it all day today. But I while ago it stopped working all of the sudden without messing with anything related to the mouse or XMouse BC, I was simply working normally.

In XMouse BC setup screen I can see that all buttons are being intercepted (flashing in yellow) except for mouse wheel tilts.

Is there any reason why this could happen? I haven't been able to figure it out.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Something must have changed - maybe the mouse driver changed (perhaps via a windows update or something)? What driver is in use? Generic HID or something else?

Thanks,
Phil

Honestly, Phill, I have no clue what changed. If something did, it was as you said via update or something in the background. The drivers I HID generic.

I just came home and just booted up to a working wheel tilt again. So go figure...

Thanks anyway.

Very strange - lets hope it stays working :)

Phil, it just happened again! I have rebooted a couple of times, uninstalled and reinstalled drivers and nothing. The mouse is Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic and I've uninstalled its software prior to installing XMBC https://www.microsoft.com/accessories/e ... /l6v-00001

What can we do to troubleshoot this? It maybe something wrong with mouse itself or its drivers, because normal horizontal scrolling in Excel (which is to work) now doesn't.

EDIT: Installing and uninstalling the Microsoft Mouse Software (that sucks balls), which I assume installs some drivers, has fixed it. Still, I feel this is going to be problematic.
