Q43781: MOUSE.COM Solves PS/2 Serial Problems with Ventura Publishing
Article: Q43781 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.01 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 20-MAR-1990 Ventura Publisher uses its own mouse driver for the PS/2 - Serial mouse. For the bus mouse, Ventura requires the Microsoft Mouse driver (MOUSE.COM) to be loaded. If you are experiencing problems using a PS/2 - Serial mouse, reinstall Ventura and select the Bus Mouse option. This will load the Microsoft Mouse Driver rather than the driver supplied by Ventura. The problems that your experienced with your PS/2-Serial mouse will no longer be present. You DO NOT need to replace your PS/2-Serial mouse to choose the bus mouse option. Selecting the Bus mouse option bypasses Ventura's own mouse drivers.
