DirectX 5 and 2 mice?

Is it possible with DirectX 5 to use 2 mice, one on COM1 and the other on COM2? Using the EnumDevice() function, I can only detect one of the mice. I'm working with Windows 95 and Watcom. I have installed two Standard Serial Mouse drivers in win95, but both of them have an "!" next to them, saying that the device is not attached, but they still work. If COM1 mouse is attached at bootup, this one works, if the one in COM1 is not there at bootup, the other one works.

Unless your devices (mice) are USB (99.9% probability they are not).. then NO, win95 does NOT support (the drivers crap out) 2 mice...and DX 5 is relying on the underlying mouse driver....it has no "mouse" interface what was written for it.
