What OS are you running? What type of mouse (USB or PS2)? The last time I saw this error, it said the file was for Win95 release B (95 OSR2.1) or later and the mouse was a USB mouse with a USB to PS2 adapter. Since that computer was running Win95a, the mouse didn't work with the computer since OS had no USB support.

If you have Win95, check your OS version number. If it is the later version, you need to enable the USB support. The patch is called usbsupp.exe and should be on the setup disc in the Other folder (<CD-drive>:\Other\USB Folder). Load the disc and double click on the exe. It may be posted on line somewhere but I am not sure of any valid versions (no malware payload).

If you have an earlier version of Win95, only a PS2 mouse will work.

I hope this helps.

Mouse pad won't work


Reinstall the driver for the touch pad. If tha still doesn't work, I would suspect the touch pad itself and buy a new touch pad for your laptop, or an external usb/wireless mouse.

Hello, i'm trying to install canon mp drivers


You may not have enough room on your hard drive to install the drivers. If you have a previous canon printer driver installed, you have to completely uninstall it, too.

Yes,
 you need a Vista driver for this device, windows 95 shows how old it is !
If you are upgrading from WIndows XP to Vista delete all the mouse drivers in the device manager (under control panel).
Then let Vista install new ones.

Mouse quit working


update your drivers once you install them, drivers are always comng out with new updates, to update a driver ---

Open your Control Panel. Click Start, (then pick Settings in 95/98/Me) then Control Panel. Double click the System icon and choose the Device Manager tab. Find the device for which you want to update the driver. Click the plus sign (+) next to the various categories, click on the device you want to update, and then click on “Properties” and the “Driver” tab.
Then click the “Update Driver” button. A dialog box will walk you through the process. Choose “Display a list of drivers ...,” then choose the “Have Disk” button and use the dialog box to find the “driver files” folder you created on your desktop. Choose the “.INF” file in that folder and click OK. The system will update the appropriate driver. If there is more than one .INF file, try each one until you get a successful install. Finally, reboot your machine so that the new driver can take effect.

Logitech M-BJ58 USB optical mouse win xp issue


Hello dcipher,

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:
  1. Click Start->Run.
  2. Type msconfig in the Open field, and then click OK.
  3. Click the Expand File button.
  4. Type input.inf in the File to restore box.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Click the Expand button.
  8. 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.
