Article: Q47138 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: 31-AUG-1989 MOUSE.COM Versions 6.00 and later are removed from memory unless connected to a PS/2 mouse port. The message "Existing Mouse Driver Disabled" appears if the mouse is connected to a PS/2 mouse port or if other terminate-and-stay-resident programs (TSRs) prevent the mouse from being removed from memory. Earlier versions of the mouse driver do not deallocate. Versions 6.11 and 6.12 are the only versions that are removed from memory if connected to the PS/2 mouse port.
