Having just performed a fresh install of WinME and then DirectX 8.0a, I thought everything would be fine and dandy, but it was not to be.

Direct X doesnt appear to have included any Direct Input drivers, confirmed using 'dxdiag'. Using the mouse in directx games is particularly sluggish.

Iv never had this problem under ME or 95 before, and only started experiencing the problem when I started using XP (and XP was so unstable I reformatted and reinstalled ME, but directX did the same again).

Any ideas how I get it to work?? Its a Logitech Pilot Wheel mouse...


Cheers,
Stween.

Yeah i have the latest mouseware software from logitech. Iv tried running with this installed and without it installed.

However, the device manager lists my mouse as "Mousewheel (PS/2", and im sure it used to actually specify logitech.

im confused :) Windows 95 was easier, at least then you could do what you wanted and not what windows wanted :)

Ok, i have now re-reinstalled winME, and then installed mouse drivers, and THEN installed dx8.0, and STILL directinput refuses to acknowledge the fact i have a mouse.

This is pissing me off now! It always worked perfectly before. I have thought it might be the fact that I was running the mouse off a serial port with an adapter before, but it did work fine on my new install on my athlon a few months ago.

Why on earth is direct x suddenly acting up like this?? Im doing nothing different than before!!
