Q35082: Mouse Versions Prior to New Mouse 1.00 Used MOUSE.SYS
Article: Q35082 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.x 2.x 3.x 4.x 5.x 6.x Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 6-SEP-1988 Although there is no difference in functionality between the MOUSE.SYS and MOUSE.COM drivers, versions prior to the new white-button Version 1.00 mice used MOUSE.SYS loaded from the CONFIG.SYS rather than the MOUSE.COM used via the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The MOUSE.COM driver provides greater flexibility in that it is able to deallocate from memory and is executable from DOS.
