You might try this,

load the mouse after the win95 setion of the autoexec.bat

ie: path=...windows\ etc
next line will read
C:\Mouse directory\mouse.com (or what ever it needs to load)

if the machine locks up just change the lines back to the originals

Go to; Start/settings/Control Panel/ and double click on add new hardware.  Windows will guide you through all the rest!
Good Luck!

Is it compatible with any other mice---- Logitech, Mouse Systems, or Microsoft?  It will be much easier to try to find those drivers than for that mouse.  Also In Add New Hardware Wizard try forcing Win95 to load your DOS real-mode driver (don't know if it will work, never tried it)

Most IR mice I've seen don't need any special drivers, normal microsoft or logitech usually work fine - the important bit is to ensure the mouse is not asleep when trying to install.

BTW I guess you are using the mouse with its own receiver station, and not trying to get it to work with a Win95 IR comms port ??
