Q66561: 386MAX.SYS with MOUSE.COM 7.0 Can Hang Sprite Video Cards
Article: Q66561 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 7.03 7.04 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S901024-6 B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 15-NOV-1990 When used with 386MAX.SYS version 4.05 (an expanded memory driver by Qualitas Software), Microsoft Mouse driver versions 7.00, 7.03, and 7.04 can hang computers equipped with video cards that have sprite capabilities (the ability to have a graphic cursor in text mode). This problem only occurs with the above mentioned versions. Earlier versions of the Microsoft Mouse driver will not cause this problem. Using Mouse driver version 7.04 with the "/y" line option will fix this problem. e.g. in DOS: mouse /y or in the AUTOEXEC.BAT: C:\MOUSE1\MOUSE /Y
