Very nice the drivers work fine. I have 2 Expert mice and one Expert Mouse Pro. The Expert Mouse Pro is no longer made by Kensington and it is sad that it is useless for the Mac as it has 5 buttons that can be configured for applications or web sites.I believe that it is still useful on Windows but I don't use Windows.I guess I'll have to list it on eBay.

Just downloaded, installed. When I tried to launch I was told to go System Prefs>Security & Preferences and check the appropriate box. Tried to do so. Absolutely nothing happened. My Expert Mouse is temporarily bricked. I'll lurk, see if anybody has the problem and finds a solution (the standard trick of unplugging/replugging the EM's USB cable doesn't seem to work). Otherwise Kensington needs to be told (maybe by the MU site manager, who might get their attention better than we could?) that they have a serious problem on their hands. If it's relevant, I'm running OSX.13.6 on a late 2013-model iMac. Kensington really ought not to put out crap software that screws up their customers' workflows. This is the sort of thing that makes me start looking around for an alternative and more hassle-free product.

I brought up the old version of Time Machine, still works fine.. I think everybody ought to stick to that and avoid this one. It's poison.

I just went to Kensington's website, downloaded and installed version 1.3 and all is good again. Now for a drink!

Let me go into a bit more detail about downgrading to v. 3. It's probably not enough to trash the v. 4. Preference pane. To be completely safe, go to Spotlight, search for this app. and you'll find a bunch of helper files. Trash them all (some of these may be v. 4 replacements and one of them might even be the real culprit). Then go to https://www.kensington.com/us/us/3693/software-drivers, download the v.3 installer and do a clean install. Then you'll be good to go (except you'll probably still have to do the unplug/plug routine every time you reboot if you're running High Sierra).

It's a shame that the Kensington Expert Mouse is by far the best pointing device on the planet (except maybe for the Kensington Blade, I've never tried it) but Kensington isn't capable of supporting it with equally good software.

Here's one more hint. Install and use the utility Smart Scroll. You'll find the way it smooths out the scroll ring action of the Expert Mouse scroll ring to be nothing short of magical.

Works perfectly for me with El Capitan. No need for unplugging/replugging so far. Using it since 2 weeks now.

I too am finding that v. 1.2.1 is not compatible with El Capitan and my Expert Mouse USB trackball. It just says "no supported Kensington trackball found".

Version 1.2.1 was just listed on MU Aug 29, 2015. But this was released by Kensington in June. It is NOT compatible with El Capitan, in a major way: it will result in a kernel panic.
