Anyone have any information on getting this work?  It would be so much nicer to be able to use the mousewheel to scroll through the code instead of having to always use the keyboard.

You can download a free utility that runs in the system tray called FreeWheel and it allows the scroll wheel to work in any application, including VB.  I got it for the same reason you are asking about, to be able to scroll in vb.

and the download is called Freewheel.zip

Hope that helps!
