Q28505: Mouse Installation with OS/2
Article: Q28505 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.0 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 21-APR-1988 OS/2 does not use the mouse driver contained with the Microsoft mouse. The DOS mouse driver MOUSE.COM or MOUSE.SYS does not load if you install OS/2 on a machine unless you have a dual boot option where standard DOS is loaded. OS/2 has a custom driver MOUSExxx.SYS which will run in the OS/2 protected mode or DOS compatibility box. In addition to the OS/2 mouse driver, you should load the POINTDD.SYS and EGA.SYS as well. Refer to your OS/2 documentation for further OS/2 mouse driver details.
