Installing MS Wireless Intellipoint mouse 5.2

by coeurdalene / January 21, 2006 12:31 PM PST

I ordered an MS Wireless mouse. I already have one at home but I'm gone for a couple of months, so I ordered one for here. When I put in the CD, it tells me in Spanish that this program is already installed and I can't really translate what it tells me to do, but it looks like I should be able to use the installed Intellipoint which I found in add and remove programs. However, it doesn't work. I've restarted the computer, pressed the re-set buttons etc. but no luck. I'm reluctant to uninstall the old and install the new,because I don't have the original CD from when I installed the first wireless mouse and I will need that when I return home to connect the original mouse. I went online to MS Hardware and they have a download for 5.3 but not 5.2. I am such a newbie that I don't know if those would be one and the same. If this makes sense to someone could you please advise me. Thank you.

posting in a variety of forums. As David succintly pointed out, this is a forum for ''security'' issues. Since you are a newbie, I can understand your confusion.

While you could post in the PC Hardware forum, I would suggest you post in the Newbies forum here:


Or.. you can use the ''Search'' option at the very top of the page, where you should find some answers. (Try the ''Newbies'' first. ;))

Good luck..
(I'd try to answer your question, but I too just got a wireless mouse. :))
