64bit iTouch and MouseWare software?

I just aquired a Logitech mx Duo wireless keyboard/mouse and I'm trying to find someway to use the "iTouch" buttons of the keyboard on my Windows XP x64 system.  On a 32-bit WinXP system they work fine, but iTouch does not install on x64 and Logitech does not support it at this time.

Does anyone know of any 3rd party tools/utilities to configure and use the buttons in a 64 bit OS?

You could try downloading 64 bit software for a similar wireless logitech keyboard. This is a bit of a hatchet job but it may work. You could try down load maybe the drivers and software for the LX 300 model. there is 64 bit drivers for this.

Also you could try to use setpoint software from logitech. See these 2 links to 1 to see what support is possible and 2 to determine what software could support your mx duo.

I tried the SetPoint software to no avail.  It has a 64 bit version but it does not recognize my hardware.  I'll take a look at the LX300 drivers and see if those will work.

Nope, the LX 300 is one of the SetPoint devices.  Seems like all the new Logitech devices are SetPoint.  Any old iTouch or Mouseware device is not supported by them anymore for Vista or 64-bit Windows.

[Video] Oticon Case Study

Open office environments can create the dynamics for innovation, but they also bring some challenges. With over 1,000 employees in an open office, Oticon needed a solution that would preserve the environment while mitigating disruptive background noises.

Watch how they did it.

You could maybe try these MS drivers for their intellitype 5.5 64bit keyb

Also not sure if this will work but you could try this software to map fnction to your keys - KbdEdit - The Best Keyboard Layout Editor

Also Driver Magic will try to locate the drivers for your hardware :

Actually it looks like KbdEdit might be the tool I'm looking for!  I'll try it later when I'm at the computer in question.

Well, KbdEdit is getting close to what I'm looking for.  It will let me assign what scan code is generated by a keypress, but it won't let me assign a macro or key combination (like ctrl-R) to a scan code.

Know of any 3rd party applications that will do the macroing?

There was no definite resolution to my question, hence why I was leaving it open.  I'll close it with credit to Kitezh for finding a partial solution.
