I finally got windows to find my cordless mouse, but now it won't accept the driver for the specific mouse, needed to program the software package. In other words, the mouse is working on a generic cordless driver. I need it to accept the logitech cordless mouse driver in order for the setpoint software to work correctly.

Where comes the mouse from? Microsoft or Logitech?

What version of Windows you are using?

Usually when the driver is not accepted, there are 2 choices: either the driver is not updated or either is not "digitally signed". If the mouse comes from Logitech, go to Logitech website, find the cordless mouse name then download the adapted driver and install. Same thing for Microsoft.

Hope it helps

thanks yes it's a logitech mouse. I've installed the new updated software and such and even contacted Logitec. I think my problem is related to my installer not working correctly. I'm working on that problem in another open question.

Desinstall the software and the mouse driver, reboot and then reinstall it. If you had a different mouse before, the old driver was not really replaced with the new. In this case, if you desinstall the mouse's software, reboot then reinstalling, it might solve your problem.

I accepted the earlier answere because I thought my problem was reltated to an corupt windows installer- once I got the installer fixed the logitech mouse would still not load. I found a solution on the net and wanted to share it here: So here's a copy of the forum post:
The "WDF Coinstaller installation", which is part of the SetPoint 4.0 drivers, is the cause. I was able to install this update only after unplugging my G7 Mouse. But upon re-plugging of the Mouse receiver on to the USB Port, the "WDF Coinstaller installation" launches again, and
1) hangs. INF install will not continue and the XP hardware update wizard takes forever;
2) sends a error code to the driver installer itself and than the hardware update wizard fails with a fatal error;
 
THE SOLUTION (this took three days for me to find it out):
go to \programs\common files\logitech\CDDRV (if you can't find this folder, simply seach for "LfMouHid.inf". Open the file for EDIT.
Delete this lines:
 
;--- WDF Coinstaller installation ------
;
[DestinationDirs]
LOGIHIDMOUSE_Inst_CoInstaller_CopyFiles = 11
[LOGIHIDMOUSE.NT.CoInstallers]
AddReg=LOGIHIDMOUSE_Inst_CoInstaller_AddReg
CopyFiles=LOGIHIDMOUSE_Inst_CoInstaller_CopyFiles
[LOGIHIDMOUSE_Inst_CoInstaller_AddReg]
HKR,,CoInstallers32,0x00010000, "WdfCoInstaller01005.dll,WdfCoInstaller"
[LOGIHIDMOUSE_Inst_CoInstaller_CopyFiles]
WdfCoInstaller01005.dll
[SourceDisksFiles]
WdfCoInstaller01005.dll=1   ; make sure the number matches with SourceDisksNames
[LOGIHIDMOUSE.NT.Wdf]
KmdfService = LMouFilt, LOGIHIDMOUSE_wdfsect
[LOGIHIDMOUSE_wdfsect]
KmdfLibraryVersion = 1.5
;-------end of WDF section

 
Save the .inf file. Launch the driver update wizard again, select "manual" and point to the CDDRV folder. Select the new edited "LfMouHid.inf" file and THE 4.00 DRIVER WILL BE INSTALLED WITHOUT PROBLEMS!!
The only thing is, since we have edited the inf-file, the driver is not signed anymore, but who cares?
 
Try this, post your results!
 
I hope this will finally help...
