This is due to a missing Windows file called input.inf. The solution is as follows:
In Windows XP, you can use the MSCONFIG utility as described in the following steps:
- Click Start->Run.
- Type msconfig in the Open field, and then click OK.
- Click the Expand File button.
- Type input.inf in the File to restore box.
- Type the path of the Windows XP .cab file where you want to restore the file from in the Restore from box. If you don't know the patch, click the Browse From button to locate the Windows XP .cab file.
Note: The Windows XP .cab files are stored in the I386
folder on the Windows XP CD.
- Type C:\windows\inf\ in the Save file in
box. This assumes that Windows XP was installed to the default
directory. If Windows was not installed to the default directory, you
will need to adjust the path to point to the correct directory.
- Click the Expand button.
- Click OK. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.
After extracting the file and restarting, try installing the mouse software again. You should no longer see this error message.
