This is the MS Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse
Although you can download drivers here:
the connection is a standard 27MHz twin channel connection using firmware in the dongle and mouse which you can't download as that is built-in at the factory.

You cannot do mix-and-match of dongle and mouse.

The pairing is one-to-one which means that you need to bring the bundled usb dongle with the mouse to another computer if you want to use the mouse in that computer.

Logitech mouse usually allows to pair with another dongle, they allow the software to override the existing settings. Microsoft one is not possible it seems.
