GPS Acting as Mouse and solutions don't work for XP Sp2?
I had the problem of the GPS being mistaken for a mouse by Windows, and I tried the solutions presented in here: http://www.deluo.com/support/faq/ind...&id=21&lang=en
The problem is that the posted serial.reg on routis' website didn't work for me, and with Windows XP SP 2, as soon as I disconnected the GPS unit so the curser wouldn't be so crazy, the hardware list in the device manager to disable would also dissapear, making it impossible for me to disable it in the first place. (it's also near impossible to access the device manager when the curser is acting crazy) If I reconnected the GPS unit, windows would then fix the error (and the offending "fake hardware" in the form of a serial mouse wouldn't be there anymore), but disconnecting the gps unit and then reconnecting every time I boot is out of the question.
The solution is to manually edit the registry by hand (for some reason, with SP2, the values did not change upon running the sermouse.reg file.
first run regedit (start->run->regedit)
browse to here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\sermouse
change the value of "Start" to 4 (doesn't matter if it's hex or dec, but leave it how it was). It will probably be a value of 3
this is the exact same values as in the reg file that routis supplies, but for some reason in my installation of windows XP sp2, it didn't work (it worked for when I was running sp1).
Hope it helps.
