I have an older Mac G5 Power PC, and my mouse sometimes would freeze on me for a few seconds. I have the latest driver of Mouse Works, and I used to have an extended cord, but removed that, but it is connected to a hub, and not directly to the computer, but I don't believe that this is the problem. Can anyone help?

(Mac OS X 10.6.8/wireless Kensington Turbo Mouse Pro) I Downloaded and installed twice with the same result: In the system preferences I click on the MouseWorks icon and get a message that I need to quit system prefernces and reopen. I click OK and get the error message "MouseWorks driver not found" Tried several times w/o luck. Seems to me that Kensington is no longer supporting the Turbo Mouse Pro

Same problem with the mouse flying to the top/left corner of the screen. I have an optical ExpertMouse/USB (model K64325, which is not wireless) with 4 buttons and scroll-ring. The trackball is awesome, even though there is a problem with the mouse running off when I need it. -Anyway, I really wish Kensington would fix this problem. I do think the problem is with the mouse driver, because I've installed the mouse driver on my PowerBook G4, and it does it too, even when there's no mouse/trackball attached. I can't say for certain, though; it could be the operating system or the specific mouse preference setting in OS X. If the problem is not with MouseWorks, MouseWorks could perhaps be able to do a workaround (eg. testing for this particular 'incorrect data stream'.

Abandonware 101. This software currently works for me on my old mouse and is good but Kensington stopped updating it in 2006. So any mice released by them since then are probably not compatible (I just purchased a basic 5 button mouse from them and it's Windows only) and the software may break at anytime, leaving your hardware investment in the lurch. Solution? Do not buy Kensington mice.

!!WARNING!! I own a half dozen Optical Orbit Trackballs because this hardware gem cured me and my family of repetitive stress injury in the wrist and elbow areas. Mouseworks was hands down some of the best mouse/trackball software I have used...ever. I am sure there are MILLIONS of people around the globe who would agree. For this reason their lack of support for the last 4 years is absolutely inexcusable. Today my wife noticed that Kensington had released their new software for the Orbit. It is called: TRACKBALLWORKS. This software is one tenth of what mouseworks was and... it took me almost an hour to get all of it off my computer and my old mouseworks software reinstalled. LOTS of invisible files that their uninstaller leaves behind. The worst aspect of this software is you can no longer assign settings for each application making a fantastic piece of hardware now not much more useful than a regular apple mouse. Incidentally, I have never seen any third party company install any of their software into the APPLE UTILITIES folder. This is where they installed their uninstaller. I hope Apple busts them hard for that.

From Kensington tech support: "We are sorry to inform you that the MouseWorks software is not compatible with Mac OS X version 10.6 (Snow Leopard). We have no plan as of now to update the software, however we can only suggest you to check our website for any such update on the MouseWorks software." Contrary to what this tech support person said, Mouseworks software does indeed continue to work on my Mac Pro with Snow Leopard installed. (There is something funny going on with the double-click speed which I can not quite figure out, but other than that, it still seems to function.) When you click on Mouseworks in the control panel, a message comes up and says "To use the “MouseWorks” preferences pane, System Preferences must quit and reopen." When you click OK, it does what is says it would do and Mouseworks opens.

This is a great utility that allows very flexible use of Kensington mice and trackballs, but now that Leopard has been released it is very much in need of an upgrade to take Leopard's new features into consideration (example of what I mean: one click option could now be to cycle through Spaces desktops)

I just need to say that at least for my setup, these drivers work just as they should. I've used and Kensington trackballs since the Turbo Mouse 4.0 was a new product (deep into the ADB days), and the hardware has stayed great, in my opinion. The OS X software is no-doubt still less feature-rich than it was in an OS 9 version (version 5.x I think?), and I was very worried that this 3.0r1 version wouldn't work at all for Intel Macs, from the reviews here, on VersionTracker, and elsewhere. But for my Mac Mini Core 2 Duo, running 10.4.10, with the Turbo Mouse USB it works just fine. It's as configurable & reliable as it was on my older PPC Macs. The acceleration works accurately, and the 'Slowly' and 'Quickly' thresholds are just where they should be, when I move the cursor slowly, it can really go VERY slowly, and ditto with quickly. So I just wanted to say that my results actually installing it, were very good. This, after fearing that it wouldn't work at all on Intel Macs, and thus trying USB Overdrive and SteerMouse, neither of which could do the very helpful chording feature that Kensington's MouseWorks driver can do (which adds 2 more button-functions to my 4-button trackball). So you've kept me happy Kensington, though I'd love it if you could add some speed/acceleration options for the scrolling feature of my model trackball. I've had to settle for the Control-Drag feature in the fantastic program Saft, for great scrolling in Safari. My advice is try it on your Intel Mac, if it doesn't work, use their good'n'simple un-install app included with the installer.

Unfortunately, Kensington's claim that it works with Intel Macs is bogus. The driver does not recognize my TurboMouse Pro (the black trackball version) connected to my MacPro (OS 10.4.7) no matter which USB port it's plugged in to (including a USB hub).

I've used Kensington trackballs since the late '80s, but it looks like my Expert Mouse Pro will have to sit in the drawer until a MacIntel version of this driver is released. Please guys, get it out soon before I start to really love or really hate this Mighty Mouse.

What's New MouseWorks version 2.5 adds support for Kensington Bluetooth devices, adds support for additional European devices, adds a menu bar status item for displaying the Horizontal Scrolling state, fixes issues with systems using a UFS formatted boot drive, fixes issues with low battery detecton on some wireless devices, and makes other changes to enhance stability. MouseWorks version 2.5.1 contains a minor change to fix an issue where some users were not having their Kensington ADB pointing devices detected. MouseWorks version 2.6 added support for new Kensington wireless desktop solutions. MouseWorks 2.7 added support for new Kensington pointing devices, fixed an ADB pointing device problem, and removed incorrect Low Battery reports for Bluetooth devices. MouseWorks 2.8 added support for new Kensington pointing devices and wireless desktop solutions, and fixed a Low Battery reporting error. MouseWorks 2.9 added support for new Kensington pointing devices and wireless desktop solutions. It also fixes problems with Bluetooth support under Mac OS X 10.4.3 and later. If you are using Mac OS X 10.3 Fast User Switching, you must use MouseWorks 2.4 or later, since earlier versions will get very confused.

Still don't know what the update does. I just went from 2.6 to 2.9. However, with every Kensington mouse I've ever had (7 mouses on 3 different macs over the past several years), they all randomly will have the cursor fly to the corner of the screen (the top left corner, for instance) out of nowhere, upon slight movement of the mouse. I've gotten two of them replaced free of charge, I've re-installed software, I've brought them back, etc etc etc. It still seems to happen. It's not as common now with my Optical Elite, but it still exists once in a while. Great product in general, and great ability to adjust acceleration and speed of cursor movement. Great product.

I had trouble too with the time lag inbetween clicking the mouse and the computer registering it with earlier versions (v. 2.5.X) but with this one, no problems. I had two Kensington trackballs for past five years, through OS 9 to OS 10.3, and I like them.

MouseWorks X 2.6 wouldn't work with my Beige G3 running OSX 10.3.8, so I had to revert to version 2.5.1. I wish Kensington would add the "jump to default button in dialog boxes" option which was included in MouseWorks for OS9 -- a great timesaver.

I too have trouble with the lag between clicking the mouse and the computer registering it. This is definitely a Kensington issue as my previous 2 mice did not have this trouble. I love the mouse but I hope this is fixed before I am driven to another.

I have to concur with the most recent poster. I love Kensington products, but am occasioiinally bitten by a lag time between when I click the mouse, and when my Mac registers a click. This often means that instead of clicking the titlebar to drag a window, it clicks the desktop (outside of the window), causing me to enter the Finder. very frustrating. I would think that fixing this delay would be high on the list of priorities... That said, I get by with the driver, so I can use the extra buttons on the mouse...

Someone below claims that tech Support is poor at Kensington. I have NEVER dealt with a computer hardware company that has better tech Support / Customer Relations than Kensington. The difference betwen my endorsement and the other's villifying claims is that I have abundant credentials to back up the gravitas of my endorsement, including, but not limited to, my having spent yerars as the President of an Apple chartered M U G (Mac User group). Indeed, my recommendations of Kensington Products have never produced a single instance of feedback that was less than glowing!

I very much like my Kensington mice, and would like to like MouseWorks, but have noticed that (in ver 2.5 at least) there is sometimes a noticable delay between when I would click any button (even the main, i.e., left one) and when the computer would respond. This is very annoying, since it forces me to do things very slooooooowly if I want the correct object to receive the click. Bottom line: I bought USB Overdrive. Not quite as configurable, since I can't chord buttons, but I can actually get my work done again.

The below comment is totally unfair to Kensington. I have used Kensington and Logitech through the years. I have had dozens of Kensington products and have found them all almost 100% reliable and Kensington stands behind their products 1000% as well as their 5 year warranty. When I have had a problem (which hasn't been very often) I called the company and on all occasions they have freely (and promptly) sent me a replacement product at no charge to me. No hassle, no third degree, nothing. They just replace the product free of charge with a return label for the defective product. I don't think you can beat that for service. And, unlike a lot of companies now a days they are constantly updating their drivers.

If you're using Mouseworks it means you're using a Kensington mouse - beware! After using Logitech for years I made the mistake of buying a Kensington mouse - encouraged by the 5 year guarantee. This company has to have the worst customer support I have ever encountered. My non-functioning Kensington Mouse will probably live out its 5 year guarantee period waiting for a response from Kensington!

The ONLY issue that I have with this software is that I have my Mac (Dual 2.0GHz G5) setup to go to sleep after 20 min. after not being used. The Mac goes to sleep fine. It's only when it wakes up, THAT'S the problem!!! IT GOES RIGHT BACK TO SLEEP; TWO TO THREE TIMES... IN A ROW. I actually have to press the Trackball buttons and the keyboard furiously in order to keep the machine awake so it doesn't go back to sleep. Which pisses me off, because there's a blank screen and I don't know what program I launched or what thing I deleted because I can't SEE anything until it decides it wants to stay awake. There have also been times that it wakes up fine. Then after a minute or two, right in the middle of me working on something it goes back to sleep again. I MUST HAVE A LAZY COMPUTER!!! This, by the way, ONLY happened AFTER I installed this plug-in software. Customer service is no help at all either. I called twice and one didn't know what to do and the other one told me to do something that I already did, uninstall and reinstall the software; STILL does it. Oh well, I guess tough cookies for me. ANYBODY OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP ME, I WOULD GREATLY APPRIECIATE IT.

This release and exposé are not fully compatible. My "wheel-button" no longer allows for the "All Windows" option when outside the System Preferences. I set the middle mouse button to enable the "All Windows". It appears to work correctly with Sys. Pref. open, however once Sys. Pref. is closed, it no longer works. I must revert back to older release (1.X) to work propertly.

I've seen comments on here by one of the MouseWorks developers, so I know they are making a genuine effort to improve this product. However, over the past five or so years, MouseWorks has caused so many different problems for me (freezes, crashes, conflicts, you name it) that I've learned a simple lesson: do *not* upgrade to newer versions unless you truly need new features or fixes. If you have a version that works, stick with it, since upgrading will quite possibly break something. Sorry, but MW is one of the worst pieces of Mac software I have ever had to use.

With this new release, it doesn't work for me. I have uninstalled with the Kensington uninstaller and manually, and then tried reinstalling, but still nothing works. I open the pref pane and it says it is "Connecting to MouseWorks services", but then it says either it is unable to connect, or that the driver is not installed properly. I'm using a Quicksilver 733 G$, and the mouse is run through a 4 port usb hub, and it still does the same if plugged directly to the tower. Any suggestions? I've tried fixing permissions, emptying the caches, uninstalling, reinstalling, but nothing. Anyone?

Hi! Thanks to everyone here for their feedback so far on this beta release. As one of the developers, I have to admit we forgot about the fact that you can't turn off our menu bar icon if the scrolling tab is missing (which it is on devices without any scrolling capability). We're working on a fix now, and will have it out with the next beta release. Also, for the users below who posted messages about our not having support for certain devices -- we're looking into that as well. There are some European devices we should be supporting on the Mac but which we currently don't have the necessary information to support. We hope to support those in the next beta as well.

I have had nothing but problems with this software. And now I miss my trackball. MW2.4 took down my Blue &White G3 updated to Panther (The drive was wiped when with the upgrade). And my brand new G5, running 10.3.2. Kensington Support replied, quickly enough, to my email to support with the very obvious remove all traces of the software. And install the software again. My experience with this software is not positive and this software should be avoided if you can. Learn where your CUDA button is. That seemed to help with the G3.

Great, but when I put my computer to sleep I need to unplug my mouse and plug it back in or else tracking is painfully slow. I had this problem with the StudioMouse on OSX 10.2 and 10.3. But other than that I have no problems.

Buggy. I have my middle (wheel) button set up as directed by the read me, for third click, to use expose. On the scrolling tab, I have unchecked the option for wheel button to change direction of scrolling. But it inevitably changes it, and it is maddening. I can no longer scroll up and down on a page, only side to side, unless I go into the control panel and readjust it. Stick with the older version till they fix the bugs.

Just installed Panther. The mouse didn't work well until i've installed the driver 2.4b1. Now works like magic. Can't see the reason to download 2.4b2 when the other one works fine.

Does your MouseWorks version 2.4b work with Panther? Kensington says it does, but I can't get the MouseWorks Preferences to open. Anyone have luck with this?

2.4b1 and Panther and trackpad don't play well together. If you set "disable trackpad when mouse is detected", boot the system with a mouse, and then remove the mouse, the trackpad remains locked out and you can't move your cursor. Haven't figured a way aruond this yet except to leave the trackpad enabled all the time.

Nobody should complain that x, y, or z software doesn't work with Panther in a public forum until Panther is publicly available!

After installing 2.4b1, my computer would not go past the grey screen upon restart. I had to boot in 9, throw out the upgrade in X, and re-install 2.3. I'm running 10.2.8 on a G4 with a Kensington Orbit USB trackball, model 64224.

After reinstalling panther using the Archive function and uninstalling mouseworks and reinstalling mouseworks, the finder no longer crashes upon a control-click under Panther 7b85

After performing a clean install/archive install of Panther (7b85), and not having mouseworks installed, everything works great. Have not tried to reinstall mouseworks, but I have a feeling it should be fine after the clean install. Strange things happened in Panther when using the "upgrade" installation from 10.2.8. Recommend backing up for sure and definitely an archive install in panther (off topic...).

Not sure if it's related to MouseWorks, but every time I try to control-click/right click with my kensington mouse in Pather, the Finder quits... this sucks seriously... There are other issues with Panther... might need to do a clean install. 10.3 7b85

How come the title is 2.4b1 and everyone is talking about 2.3? I clicked it because I have 2.3 and wanted to see what was new. I have a wish. 2.3 doesn't have the option of choosing "cursor jump to default button" as my old OS 9 version did. I'd like that again.

Okay, sorry but ignore my last review! I read the faq at the Kensington site and found that if you have any other mouse driver installed, it will prevent MouseWorks from recognising the mouse - I had a Macally mouse driver still installed on the system David ____________________ iBook 700mhz OSX 10.2.1

Orbit Elite worked fine through my powered hub *without* installing tMouseWorks - as soon as I installed it, nothing, nada, zip! The MouseWorks pref pane didn't even rcognise the trackball being there! ____________________ iBook 700mhz OSX 10.2.1
