Q61592: Mouse Command-Line Switches for Mouse Driver Version 7.04
Article: Q61592 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | Video 7 Video-7 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 29-AUG-1990 The following are the current command-line options (switches) for Microsoft Mouse Driver version 7.04: Option Description ------ ----------- /B Using bus mouse /Cn Using serial mouse on port COMn (where: 0 <= n <= 1) /Dn Enabling double-speed threshold (where: 0 <= n <= 100) 0 => No threshold speed (always double speed) 100 => Maximum threshold speed (rarely double speed) /Hn Setting horizontal sensitivity (where: 0 <= n <= 100) 0 => 0 horizontal mickeys per pixel scaling factor (i.e., no horizontal movement returned) 100 => 100 horizontal mickeys per pixel scaling factor /In Using Microsoft InPort Mouse on primary or secondary InPort (where: n = 1 or n = 2) /L(c) Selecting language c Languages are defined as follows: c Language Ordinal Value - -------- ------------- (default) English 0 F French 1 NL Netherlands (Dutch) 2 D German 3 S Swedish 4 SF Finnish 5 E Spanish 6 P Portuguese 7 I Italian 8 K Korean 9 J Japanese 10 /Mn Cursor mask override (where: 0 <= n <= 255, n = 0 => mask off) 0 => Mask off Not 0 => Mask on (If software cursor is specified in function 10, then set cursor to default software cursor. It tells the mouse driver to determine which bit pattern to use to make the cursor visible.) /Nn Using dampened cursor motion to fix LCD laptop display problems (where: 0 <= n <= 255) (This slows down the screen update rate.) 0 => Skip 0 interrupts (this is, same as normal mouse) 255 => Skip 255 mouse hardware interrupts before processing data /Pn Selecting ballistic curve number n (where: 1 <= n <= 4) (Note that this may change if the specification changes.) /R(n) Setting interrupt rate (where: 1 <= n <= 4, default n = 1) 1 => 30Hz 2 => 50Hz 3 => 100Hz 4 => 200Hz /Sn Setting both horizontal and vertical sensitivity (where: 0 <= n <= 100) 0 => 0 mickeys per pixel scaling factor (that is, no movement returned) 100 => 100 mickeys per pixel scaling factor /Vn Setting vertical sensitivity (where: 0 <= n <= 100) 0 => 0 vertical mickeys per pixel scaling factor (that is, no vertical movement returned) 100 => 100 vertical mickeys per pixel scaling factor /Y Disabling sprite and Video Seven code (To disable mouse driver hardware cursor support on certain Video Seven and C&T VGA controllers.) /Z Using PS/2 mouse (This is added for PS/2 only. It directs the driver to look for the mouse at the mouse port.)
