    You need to reread the directions. Mouseworks won't work on Vista 64bit. Follow the OPs directions, but install the 64bit versions like I stated:

    The above does work for Vista 64-bit, but you need to download » IntelliPoint 6.3 64-bit for Windows Vista

    Follow the instructions in the original post, but install that instead of the 32-bit version.

    Make sure you also install the 64-bit version of X-mouse found here: http://www.highrez.co.uk/scripts/dow...ckage=XMouse64

    This is at the beginning of my post here: /forum/showpost.php?p=971478&postcount=12

    The directions below that is for installing mouseworks on VISTA 32BIT.

    ONCE AGAIN MOUSEWORKS WILL NOT WORK IN VISTA 64BIT. FOLLOW THE WORK AROUND ABOVE TO BE ABLE TO PROGRAM YOUR BUTTONS IN 64BIT VISTA.

      I have just bought a new computer which has Vista installed. It is the 64-bit system. I have followed the instructions in the first post of this thread and things are working, but not quite properly. First of all, the link to Intellipoint doesn't work anymore, obviously they've made some changes. So I rooted around and found this link. http://www.download3k.com/Install-Mi...nt-64-bit.html . After installing this, I then installed X-Mouse Button Control [64-bit]

      I'm now having problems setting up the buttons. It seems that one minute the bottom left-hand mouse button acts as a one click button, the next minute it is acting as a right button. I have managed to get that sob right hon butts and working as a drag function and it seems after I have used this function, the bottom left-hand button automatically reverts to the right-hand button .

      Could someone explain how to setup the buttons. at the moment, my left button is left click, and the right button is right-click-drag. This seems to work for the left click on my click bringing up a menu, but I can't get it to drag.
      Any help would be very much appreciated

      If you follow this link below, I'm using the first trackball connecting using USB

        I have given out for the moment, I just can't get it to work properly.

        However, vista has various functions built-in that will enable you to use the trackball in near enough the same way that you can on XP. Basically, go into control panel > mouse properties > Then check "turn on click lock" there is an adjustment which enables you to govern how long you have to hold the button down. it works a treat. The right-hand button acts as a normal right-hand button on your normal everyday mouse. Okay, it's quite basic, but it enables you to use your trackball as it was designed without going to all the trouble of installing software to get it to work.

        I believe this is why Kensington I met along the creating software for Vista

          I saw a white one of these on amazon.uk but it seemed to have bad review and person said kensington werent supporting it with drivers to program the buttons.

          I was wanting all white one to match my new macbook. Does anyone know if there's software to program the buttons on a mac as I'd need drag lock, and double click.

          Thanks

              I think the white one is an older version. I haven't got a Mac but there does seem to be drivers for them on the Kensington website

                This also works in Windows 7 64-bit, for those interested. Follow JayColorado's original instructions (in the first post), but in the first step download the W7 version of Intellipoint here:

                http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...7.10.344.0.exe

                Otherwise, follow the other instructions as-is. It's no Mouseworks, but it gets the job done.

                    This is a step-by-step process to fix MouseWorks in 32-bit Vista using WADDIE's instructions. I came here from Google while trying to find a solution to my problems with MouseWorks. Some of the instructions were unclear to me, and after a bit of nosing around I figured it out. This is for other people who are confused about how to fix this problem.

                    1) Download Kensington Mouseworks 6.22 from Kensington's website. (Even if you have a CD for it!)

                    2) Right click and choose "Extract Here." (Or, alternatively, wherever you want to extract the folder to. It doesn't really matter where it goes as long as you remember where it is for later.)

                    3) Go to the search bar in the start menu and type in "Device Manager."

                    4) Click on "Device Manager."

                    5) Find the correct device under "Human Interface Devices."
                    - It is probably named "USB Human Interface Device," so it would be wise to start there.
                    - You can do this by disabling the selected driver under the Driver tab in Properties until the mouse ceases to respond. Once it stops responding, hit "Enter" on your keyboard and it will be re-enabled. Obviously, since the mouse stopped working when you disabled the driver, this is the driver you want.

                    6) Under the Driver tab in Properties, choose "Update Driver..."

                    7) Choose "Browse my computer for driver software."

                    8) Browse the computer and find the Mouseworks folder you extracted earlier.

                    9) Click "Next."

                    10) Windows will install the driver software. Once it does, you can go into MouseWorks and map all of your buttons.

                      Finally,

                      Kensington's trackball Expert Mouse now works with 32- and 64-bit versions of vista and windows 7. Download the TrackballWorks driver here.

                        TrackballWorks offers substantially reduced button programmability compared to Mouseworks.

                        It is seriously lame.

                          Will this work around work for expert mouse using vista and using PS2 connector?

                            I have the expert trackball and it will not work on Windows 7 64bit. When you plug it into the usb port, the light goes on, but it is not recognized. If you go into device manager and try to find the human interface device, it isn't there unless you plug in something else.

                            I have downloaded the mouseworksPC 622.exe, the trackball works V1_0_4.exe and the tBW_11beta win.exe, and none of them work.

                            I am ready to throw it against the wall and let the dogs play with the ball. I will NEVER BUY KENSINGTON AGAIN. Logitech is much better.

                              follow these directions, http://www.techenclave.com/operating...it-145539.html , but use the newest trackball tools from kensington, dseo13b.exe will allow you to disable driver signing in vista 64bit and win7 64bit.

                                Did you try it in another computer? Maybe the trackball itself has a problem. I have one and it works fine in Windows 7 64-bit.
