We've got a problem here.. Unfortunately the pen base tablet is considered as a pointing device, therefore it would be difficult to get around that problem without an easier solution like a COM port switch box.  That would be your best and easiest bet right now.  Let me recap, an A/B box for com, where your will share the com2 between your mouse and Pen tablet.

I'm not aware if they have worked something around that, but this is to the best of my knowledge. (As we do graphics as a business)

Best regards.

Well speak for yourself... Isn't enough reading your useless answers everywhere on this site.  By the way try to learn English first, before you comment others, and look at the numbers, you would understand who know computers and who knows Pancakes...

Thank you for this solution. It is not exactly the one I wanted, but it will work. Also please ignore Mr. jburghardt's comments, he could have worded his reply less antagonisticly. Although he is correct in saying that I didn't mention if I have a p/s 2 port or not, which I don't. Once again thank you for your reply.

You're absolutely right. Regarding the PS/2 mouse normally the people who has that would mention it in the first place.  Since you didn't, I assumed you don't have one. (and by the way, the correct wording for this would be a BUS mouse) this is the one that does not use a COM.

If you need further help, let me know.
Since you would be using pen tablet, I also assume you would be doing graphics which is our buiness.
