I got a new PC with Windows 7 64bits an i got trouble setting my good old microsoft Intellimouse optical.

Here the exact model of the mouse:

I installed the last 'driver' IntelliPoint 7.0 64-bit for Windows 7

But no matter what I try, I cannot set the mouse's side buttons to copy( left button) and paste (right button).

And yes, I rebooted.

    look like a good workaround.  I'm installing that Autohotkey thing and get back to you...

    I only had to invert the mouse buttons code and remove the middle mouse button shortcut and everything is OK...

    here my slightly modified script.
