Plug in the receiver to the computer. Usually the receiver will plug into the USB port, but some plug into the mouse port. If all of your USB ports are filled, see if the mouse came with a USB adapter. The adapter fits into the mouse port. Be careful not to accidentally force the mouse adapter into the keyboard port.

If still not working try restarting your computer.
If still not working, update windows (programs> Windows Update)
I would have suggested opening up your old mouse and cleaning the right click button first.
Generally, wireless devices have a connect button that finds the frequencies of the devices. On the receiver press this button, then press the button on the bottom of your new mouse. the receivers lights will stop flashing once connected.
I had the same problem with my Microsoft Intellimouse 1007 (Explorer 2.0) Tried various solutions (reinstall/update drivers). In the end I went into the board bios and found that enabling the motherboards 'USB mouse' controller and 'USB keyboard' controller solved the problem. Hope this helps.
